oh wow... Does anyone know why he needed that surgery ?

from his instagram

Quote
I got an infection when they cut my umbilical cord right after I was born. The infection went into my blood and I almost died. They said that I might not walk because the infection affected the bone in my left leg. It also damaged my heart. Yesterday I had open heart surgery to repair my aortic valve and aorta. It was planned for a while. The doctors said that for basically my whole life my aortic valve has been leaking and the blood flow has been really inefficient. I think one of the doctors said that itís been pumping at about 70% of capacity. Itís hard to tell if this has been affecting me because I always think that if Iím tired or winded, I just need to try harder. Obviously Iím in pain and the recovery will be tough. They said that it will take 4-6 weeks before I can go back to work and about 3-5 months until I can be rigorously active, at which time I look forward to showing off my scar, surfing, and busting your ass at basketball if you step up.

He's doing better. Recovering. Send him some encouragement/ positive vibes on IG. He's on there quite frequently

Glad to hear that. He seems to be home from the hospital.

Glad to hear that. He seems to be home from the hospital, so safe to say that he's recovering.

Yea, He even says he's walking and stuff. Really hard after any surgery, but I know it's a little more when it deals with the heart. Especially mentally I'd imagine. Dealt with some family members go through it.

Met him and Crook before a show in 2005. Cool dudes. Awesome show too.  Wish Todd a great recovery.

Gamer, I was meaning to ask you, are you just a Team Sleep fan? Never see you over in the Deftones part of the board.

I'm both. I'm more of a fan of older Deftones stuff, but Team Sleep has just resonated with me more. The mysterious vibe it has because of the demos and visual style makes it more interesting to me. After listening Ohms, I really just want Team Sleep to come back because of all the material they have, and I just feel like there's a lot more creativity that goes into the band. Deftones has devolved into mediocrity to me.

Oh, Todd was teasing a music video shoot on his IG a couple days ago. Definitely not for TS, but maybe some solo stuff?

  • And if you don't believe I think you should
Kinda irritating how Chino completely ignores his side project TS, it's my favorite thing he's done outside of Deftones. I know Todd had heart surgery recently, I know Chino was pissed about the leaks early on in the project, and I know he wanted it to be low key but it turned into something the label wanted to add pressure on him to produce, but why has it been 15 years without anything new? I think it's time he should revisit it now that his schedule has opened up. I feel like now he wouldn't have to worry about a lot of the stuff he did back then, and I'm sure I'm not the only fan who's dying to hear a new album.

I dislike the teasing, that ultimately leads to nothing.
And in particular I dislike the absence of 'Dreamland' :(

Someone posted about Fen Fen on reddit and I ended up on a rabid quest for 2007 footage. I know they played March, Fen Fen and New Guitar that they never released. Was there any others?

Anyway I found this live version of March. It's fairly unknown probably because it was uploaded in 2015. The sound saturates but it's very audible.

I have an unreleased although incomplete live version of Fen Fen I'll try to get up.

Here's all the unreleased clips from the Pomona 2007 gig that I got from my bud Angel Silva. They include Fen Fen and New Guitar among others. They're short and sound isn't the best but damn Team Sleep sounded amazing in 2007.

Nice, thanks for the upload, Vesanic! Good stuff, now we finally have a better idea of Fen Fen outside of the previous clip. What a stunning sounding song.

Todd and Gil have finished tracking an EP. Think it's for Todd's solo stuff.
