Omar Rodriguez-Lopez
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is band leader and musical composer of the writing partnership at the core of The Mars Volta. Along with vocalist/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Rodriguez-Lopez has established himself as one of the most recognizable and influential rock artists of the early twenty-first century.

The duo first gained notoriety in 2000 with their group At the Drive-In, releasing their final album, Relationship of Command (Grand Royal), to rave critical reviews, and attracting a legion of fans worldwide. On the heels of the album's success, Rodriguez-Lopez and Bixler-Zavala dissolved the group and immediately formed The Mars Volta. Since 2002, the band have released a steady barrage of challenging and evocative albums and toured the world relentlessly. Rodriguez-Lopez has simultaneously amassed a growing catalog of off-the-beaten-path releases (often with the help of Volta members and various other colleagues), written and recorded between and often during the fast-paced touring, rehearsing and recording regimen he sets for The Mars Volta. He has toured Europe under the moniker The Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Quintet, and in late 2006 issued Please Heat This Eventually, an EP with the legendary Damo Suzuki (of Can fame).
