DEFTONES bassist Chi Cheng says that the band are looking forward to opening up for METALLICA and playing with more commercially successful bands like LIMP BIZKIT and LINKIN PARK during the upcoming Summer Sanitarium Tour. "I know I'm definitely a METALLICA fan, and so it's a band we've never toured with," he explained. "It's like, 'Well, shit.' I mean, I think that now that we've proven ourselves for so many years and for so long that we can feel comfortable doing a bill like this which normally we would always turn down.
"We're always notorious for turning anything remotely associated with a scene down and I think that we feel comfortable right now doing anything we want as long as our shit is airtight, you know what I mean? And the chance to play with METALLICA is pretty fuckin' cool."
