Deftones' Chino Moreno

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Shares His Favorite Duran Duran Songs


Deftones frontman/guitarist Chino Moreno has long been a fan of Duran Duran and last night shared the below playlist of his favorite songs from the band. In addition to the Deftones themselves having covered a few Duran Duran tunes throughout their career, Moreno cited the group’s frontman Simon Le Bon among his favorite lyricists earlier in the year, telling Kerrang!:

“To me he’s just the king of metaphorical writing where, on paper, it’s hard to make sense of anything he’s saying. Lyrics like ‘cherry ice cream smile’ I suppose means ‘very nice’. I love not understanding what he’s saying yet completely feeling what’s coming out for some reason or another. That’s sort of been a pattern that I follow when I write, just sort of letting the words come out and put them in order and make sense of it later. Usually they do end up reflecting something that I must have been feeling at the time. I love the ambiguity of that. He’s the king of that.”
