Juan Alderete seriously injured

Recommended Posts

This is terrible news, really hope he pulls through and his family can get the support they need.

I adore his playing with The Mars Volta, his performance on Frances The Mute particularly had a big impact on my development as a bassist

Really sad about this, it’s a significant injury, so just keeping everything crossed!

I have no idea who he is or know much about Mars Volta, but that is a very horrible thing to happen for his family etc, hope he gets better.

I read it on his Instagram page yesterday. Seriously bad news. I met him two years ago after a Marilyn Manson concert. Absolutely fantastic bass player (I lóve his playing in The Mars Volta) and an incredibly nice guy. Hope he'll recover.

Awful news. Big MV fan and have seen him play a few times and been suitably impressed.

Hoping he can make a full recovery. :(

He's been around for years.  Used to play in Racer X with Paul Gilbert.  Seems like a really good guy and a decent player.  Wishing him a full and speedy recovery.

Thanks, but not for me

I think this thread is about Juan, not yourself, with all respect.

Hope he can pull through this terrible incident - monster of a player.

Juan is awesome, hope he pulls through. Seen him a bunch of times with The Mars Volta. Got to meet him at an Earthquaker demo at Wunjo, where he was gracious and humble towards a fan's gushing over the intro to Day Of The Baphomets (me). Also his pedalsandeffects.com site is hugely helpful in directing my effects research/spends.
