Happy birthday Puffy

November 28th, 2009|Faith No More|19 Comments

The man who belied that drummer hanging out with musicians gag and the man who makes FNM tick, the one and only Mike “Puffy” Bordin celebrates (or at least we do on his behalf) his 47th birthday today. Puff was an original member of the band and his distinctive drumming set the tone for the group right from the off. His soul may have been metal but the Ganeshian drummer had and has the skill and mind set to drive FNM in any direction.

As Mike P would chastise, Mike is also, of course, Ozzy’s drummer, recognition that we is feted by his peers as one of the greatest metal percussionists of all time.

  • In an effort to stave off the post-tour withdrawal symptoms, here are a few small FNM nuggets. First up, rewind back to few weeks in late October and a clip of a snippet of Fever leading into King for a Day…
  • Also in Chile, the campaign to get FNM to return in 2010 continues.
  • And there is also a petition to bring the band back to Brazil.
  • Movieweb asks the stars of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia is Mike Patton – a friend of star Danny DeVito – whether the FNM front man might make a cameo appearance in the show.
  • More great shots of FNM in Mexico City here on Flickr.
  • Via Jose in comments, very high quality footage of FNM in Santiago.

UPDATE:
Still no news on set list or any video surfacing but here’s a review from El Porvenir, wqhich states that the concert was not sold out, that the sound was poor and that Mike P took out a monitor in anger.
It also lists Be Aggresive, Surprise! You’re dead!, Last Cup of Sorrow, Easy, Epic, Midlife Crisis, The Gentle Art of Making Enemies and Just a Man as among the songs performed while Jaun in comments suggests they played RV (see I do read the comments!!).

No news on set list or any video yet but Roddy has posted a great photo on Twitter.
