Personal information

Born on: 08.03.1973

Tony Campos (born March 8, 1973 in Los Angeles, CA) is a Mexican American musician. He is the bass guitarist for the thrash metal band Soulfly and former bass guitarist of industrial metal band Static-X and frontman/bassist for Asesino. Campos was the final bassist for Ministry, which retired in 2008. He has currently joined the thrash metal band Prong.

Career

Along with Wayne Static, Tony is the only band member that has been a constant figure through the different Static-X lineup changes. Tony backs up with growling low vocals, and he sings the entire song "Anything But This" Live. He performs vocals and bass for Asesino. He also joined Ministry after bassist Paul Raven died.

In 2001, Campos suffered a motorcycle accident, resulting in a broken collarbone, which caused him to miss most of the ongoing Static-X tour. He was temporarily replaced with Marty O'Brien. His stage name, "Maldito X", is Spanish for "Damned X".
