Grand plans for Aubrey McClendon’s wine cellar didn’t quite work out as intended. The project, near the Chesapeake campus at NW 68th Street and Classen Boulevard, was started in 2006.

She had an Oklahoma City shirt, Thunder-blue boots and a vibrant smile that was the perfect accessory to her bedazzled Oklahoma City Thunder handbag.

There are few modern hard rock bands that come to enjoy the wide appeal and critical acclaim that alt-metal act Deftones has over the course of its 20-plus years as a band, and the five-piece isn’t looking to slow down anytime soon. “I think the fact that people get this band is not so much
