On 8/1/12 at 1:30 PM Juan will be doing an IAmA on Reddit.

He will basically be answering questions live for an undetermined amount of time.

Hope this hasn't been posted elsewhere, just though others would be interested.

I believe that it will appear on this page:
http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/

Also thanks be to the person who got him to do the IAmA!

I'd be interested to hear his thoughts on the next TMV album and his thoughts on having some say in his bass sound/direction/ideas?

Ask him really personal stuff. Like: how many takes does Omar typically do on his own guitar parts? What is the worst Mars Volta song? How important were drugs to the band's sound? Do you have any regrets about the past 9 years?

For now, we could use this thread as a brainstorming session for questions.

One of mine would be:
Have you felt a significant change in the band dynamic since Omar's decision to make The Mars Volta a democracy?

Ask him to settle once and for all who the better drummer is: Jon or Thomas. And Blake or Dave. I don't mean at drumming, obviously. At bunking. What's more annoying: video games or human waste?

"D is one of the most dedicated musicians I have been around. For example, I asked him for some music for our Vato Negro record we were doing and he handed me a drive and said "take all the songs off this drive." I thought there would be 30-40 songs but, I kid you not, there were over 300 songs on there. Mostly complete arranged songs. He makes anyone feel like a half stepper. He is one of my closest homies. He has my back. We are in this together and we will always remain friends."

Awesome.
