Zwan Auditions...

Juan Alderete de la Peña, perhaps best known as the kick-ass bassist for Mars Volta, recounts his audition with Jimmy Chamberlin, Billy Corgan and Matt Sweeney...


  1. Holy crap, I had no idea Juan auditioned, thanks for linking this!

  2. Hey Drev, your old pal Rael here just checking whats going on in Jimmy Land. I have to say that is a really funny audition story.
    Sheds some light on Belly and the kind of person he really is. As painful as it is to not have Jimmy in the Pumpkins anymore
    every time I hear a story like this it makes me think that he made the right choice to leave. Hope you and your family are well.

    Cheers Rael .

    1. Hey dude, sorry. Only just saw your post. Don't come around here much anymore! Hope you and your family are well and good? You on facebook or google? I still keep in touch with Wayne Arnold, Pistol Pete, s0ss and a couple of other guys from Blamo.
