a response from chino moreno (deftones/team sleep/crosses) regarding opinionated online fans and forums. such a great read, couldn’t of said it better myself:
AP: \"You just do good work and hope people respond to it. At this point, Crosses donât need to be part of the machinery of a recordâs promotion.\"
Moreno: \"Maybe a lot of that has to do with what Iâve experienced in the past anytime I ever recorded anything aside from Deftones. Deftones fans are very opinionated. I never go on [the internet] and read any of the fuckinâ message boards or nothing like that. Motherfuckers piss me offâthey feel like they are in the fuckinâ band sometimes and they are so entitled. [Like they know what] we ‘should’ do and what I ‘should’ be doing. I end up getting pissed, so I donât even pay any attention to that shit anymore.
\"My main thing with doing Crosses is, I already know thereâs going to be a bunch of people, like, ‘Oh, here he goes again. Heâs doing some mellow shit.’ I know there are Deftones fans that just want to hear me fuckinâ scream my head off. Thatâs fine, too, you know what I mean? I do that sometimes, but at the same time, itâs like Iâm doing this because itâs fun for me. Iâm sure there will be a lot of people who will appreciate it, but Iâm sure there will be a lot of people who just want to hate on it. The last thing I want to do is give anybody any reason to have any preconceived thoughts about what it is. Itâs free. Listen to it. If you like it, thatâs great. If you donât, thatâs great.\"
