Juan had a lot of great things to say about Omar, Cedric and Deantoni. He's always down to earth. Dont see the problem with his comments.

I think a better title for the interview is "Digruntled former Mars Volta bassist says he would rather listen to Kanye West than Antemasque."


I haven't listened to the interview. Is that for real? He seems the most butthurt.

 

 

Not at all - I was giving it the most inflammatory spin possible.

Well, technically he communicated that sentiment. He said he's hasn't listened to ANTEMASQUE because he's not into rock, and then when listing off artists he likes/listens to he mentions Kanye. So it's a fair deduction to say that if given the option, he'd rather listen to Kanye than ANTEMASQUE.

I agree he doesn't come off sounding butthurt. He's just a guy who listens to what he feels like listening to, and doesn't mind being honest about it.

Well we know he's a hip hop fan, so that's not surprising. I think it's come up in interviews before with people asking him about Omar's projects without him or other people's projects, and he hadn't listened to them or even wasn't aware of them, which to me is odd because I'd be curious and want to follow what former bandmates do and so on, but it seems it's just not something that concerns him that much. I haven't actually listened to this interview yet, mind you.

Man, that was a really nice interview. Nice touch for the last 4 questions, pretty fun and now I know Juan loves Band Of Gypsys.
Such an amazing album, couldn't be happier if he ends up doing a cover from this one day.

Thanks for doing this and sharing it here.

Sometimes I don't know how to wrap my head around all this. Juan is clearly an honest, well-mannered human being and I can't say bad things about Omar; yet, the way he acted in this is bad and it must've left an undeserved sour feeling for Juan. Don't know, just thinking out loud here, I guess...

 

Seems silly that you "can't say bad things about Omar" as clearly it seems there is good reason for some of those guys to be mad at him.  I think he mentions it, but he is careful about what he says on the subject which usually indicates someone is upset about the subject.  That was the vibe I got anyway; that he just wanted to make sure he didn't start bashing Omar. 

 

Well, silly... I think I haven't expressed what I really meant clearly. I meant it as in we've had Juan's opinion on this - reserved and polite, yes, but an opinion - whereas we haven't heard or seen anything on this matter said by Omar. So all this, even though strongly implied by Juan and others (Ikey maybe, I'm not counting Pidgeon's "opinions" :D) may be just one-sided opinion or view. And I'm sure you know that there's always two sides to a story.

 

The thing is, that's me speculating too much now and I hate doing that. Maybe some day we will know what went between the two (O & Juan), maybe not, I don't care.

Maybe it's not necessarily all Omar's fault. Maybe Omar provided someone with a very good situation and that person started taking advantage of and ruined the situation. Maybe The Mars Volta truly was on a short hiatus but someone's actions caused it to now be dead for a lot longer, if not forever. Just thinking out loud here...

 

 

Yep, there's always that, of course.

Does anyone have a mirror to this interview?  When I click the link I'm just getting "This Account Has Been Suspended"

 

Nice one

In theory I could have edited out one of the channels and gotten rid of the laughs I guess....but meh fuck it.  Maybe when I do the next interview.  I kind of just laugh at everything.  Bad habit or what not, but its my way of being positive and avoiding being a snide cynical dick...which I often am as well.

 

I'm gonna try and get it on youtube since a bunch of you have been asking and been polite about waiting.  Not 100% certain how long the outage will be so I wanna make sure whoever wants to listen to it can.

It's not a bad habit at all -- I was amused by how hard you were laughing, somewhat maniacally.
