Yeah, this is kind of a stupid thread but anyway:

Any good wiki nerd on here that could seriously improve Juans article? I mean, the bio is so uninformative, it doesn't even mention what he's done for the band since Frances. So if anyone could just ad some stuff about the latest albums, his work with Omar solo, Big Sir, something about Day of the Baphomets maybe? And a picture. He deserves one.
I'd do it myself if I weren't completely lost when it comes to editing them articles, I'm more of a wiki consumer. ;)

If I had internet for my computer and not my phone, I totally would. Love that guy. He's always been a joy to talk with him, whether be it in person or online.

Don't forget to add that he played the bass on the song "Bear Witness" (and probably more) on Dr. Octagon's cd. It doesn't even mention that on the Dr. Octagon wiki. The only place I've ever heard it is that interview that Juan did where he played along with it and said that he played on the album for free.

Yeah it's pretty easy you just click the "edit this page" button and then add whatever information you know about the guy. So easy a Coma head can do it.

C'mooon people... there's got to be a wiki nerd on here!

Oh, and please: Fix Adrians article as well, it's a fucking mess. Doesn't even mention that he left the band. :P

Juan is awesome. As much as Omar likes saying everyone expendable, his shoes would be pretty hard to fill.
He shows up every show and always delivers solid performances.

His basslines are the best thing about a lot of Omar's solo stuff.

I loved the bass solos he did on his own during the UK shows last year, just before The Widow when the rest of the band went off stage. His intro bass solo in DOTB is frankly ridiculous.

I would guess that he's uncredited for contractual reasons?

"Juan has also played with Metallica."

Oh, really?
