About this creation
Cross of Confusion
Dez is of Italian descent. His father, Tiger Fafara, was a child actor on the Leave It to Beaver sitcom, playing the character "Tooey Brown."
Dez's wife is named Anahstasia, and she appears on the cover of the second Coal Chamber album Chamber Music. Dez has three sons: Tyler, Simon and Kaleb. "Tyler's Song", from the album Chamber Music, was written for Tyler. Simon, age nine, added backing growls on DevilDriver's third album, The Last Kind Words (2007), on the song Tirades Of Truth, during the last two lines of the chorus.
Dez released a total of 5 albums with Coal Chamber. Three of the albums, Coal Chamber (1997), which went gold, Chamber Music (1999), and Dark Days (2002), consisted of new material. An album of remixes, rarities, and b-sides, titled Giving the Devil His Due (2003) and a "Best Of" (2004) were also released. Coal Chamber disbanded in 2003, shortly after Dez formed his current band DevilDriver.
Dez refuses to talk about his earlier years with Coal Chamber. In a recent interview Meegs Rascon indicated he will miss performing Coal Chamber songs.
Currently, Dez has released four studio albums, DevilDriver (2003), The Fury of Our Maker's Hand (2005), and The Last Kind Words (2007), and most recently Pray For Villains (2009), and an EP. DevilDriver was also nominated for a Golden God Award in 2008 for the best break-through metal band.
Dez has appeared on more than 12 soundtrack records, including Scream 3, which also went gold. He also collaborated with Ozzy Osbourne for a remake of "Shock the Monkey", a song originally by Peter Gabriel, that was released on the album Chamber Music. This song propelled this record to debut 22 on the billboard charts upon release.
Fafara recently recorded a song for the compilation Roadrunner United, an album created by Roadrunner Records for their 25th year anniversary. The song, titled "Baptized In The Redemption", featured Dez on vocals with Dino Cazares (Fear Factory), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Paul Gray (Slipknot) and Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour, ex-Soulfly). Dez worked with Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) on a song called "Where is God Tonight?". Dez has also worked with Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual) on an early side project Viking Crown.
Dez got his first tattoo at the age of 16. He has a large assortment of tattoos, including a tribal tattoo on his chin, a Nightmare Before Christmas tattoo on his chest, the DevilDriver logo on his upper arm, and the Coal Chamber logo on his forearm.

For a moment, I thought this wasn't Lego! I can see you've put a minifig, quite accurate too! Put the minifig first, then comparison pic next time. Personally, I like Trivium and that type of Metal.

1) "MOST COMMON" sell outs w/ no dignity
2) being recognized for their amazing talent
