The first and only time I ever saw the Deftones live was at the Riverside in Newcastle back in 1998. The room was really crowded and the mosh pit was mental. I can remember sweat dripping from the ceiling and steam coming from me when we left. I vowed from that moment on that I would never go to see the Deftones live again as *nothing* would beat that gig and to this day I’ve still haven’t despite having ample opportunity to do so. I think I’m scared of disappointment to be honest. Anyway many thanks to the band and to Chi for blowing my fragile little mind all of those years ago. R.I.P.
