Deftones’ Chino Moreno reveals Stef Carpenter “wasn’t too happy” about him playing guitar on White Pony

by GuitarDomain

This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of Deftones’ pivotal 2000 release, White Pony, which saw the band brave altogether more ethereal sonic territories. This change in direction has in part been attributed to the advent of Chino Moreno’s electric guitar contributions, in conjunction with wrecking-ball riff merchant Stephen Carpenter – although, if you ask Chino, Stef had mixed feelings about the frontman’s new six-string role.

In a press conference celebrating the album’s anniversary, Moreno shared his reflections on the recording process and the band’s expansive new sound.
