An Eraserheads concert after 2009 seemed impossible until it happened last December 22, 2022. Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala, and Marcus Adoro, members of the iconic OPM band, performed a one-night-only show at the SMDC Festival Grounds, Philippines.

On music career

In his 34 years in the music industry, the former Eraserheads member is grateful to his fans for supporting him throughout his career, from listening to his songs to watching his concerts.

“It’s been an up and down, but I’ve been very blessed to have a long-lasting career…I’m just really grateful,” he said.

Buendia continued to live in people’s hearts with his songs that captured many people of different ages.

On passion

Buendia said he would like to be remembered as “someone who cannot be forgotten.” His passion for music is really something that takes people down memory lane.

When people recall the iconic OPM bands of the Philippines, Eraserheads would be on the top list. Their songs are valued by the people, not just in the Philippines but also by their fans worldwide.
