Chi Cheng, Deftones bassist, passes away.

Quote:

We have some sad news to report tonight: it seems that Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has passed away.

After a car accident in Santa Clara, CA back in 2008, Chi suffered major injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. This accident left Cheng in a coma.

In 2010, the musician showed improvement, responding to commands and moving his legs. After showing more signs of rehabilitation, he was moved to his home for recovery.

Cheng died last night at 3am in the hospital. His family left the following note on a charity website made for him, Oneloveforchi.com.

Quote:

“Our dearest Family,

This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency [sic] room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.

He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.

With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)”

Deftones were huge for anyone who was an alternative teenager in the 90s. I know quite a few ITMers who have had them be an amazing influence on their music tastes.

No matter what you're into, it's hard to deny the impact that a fantastic band like the Deftones have had on the majority of individuals to Gen X and Y.

Saw the deftones in Anglesea at the vans warped tour back in 95 or 96 I think it was, with suicidal tendencies. Still have photos I took on the day with the band in some old shoe boxes.

A sad day, but hopefully he is in a better place.

Remember that news... I was disappointed with it..Then I thought that Deftones will break apart soon, but they didn`t. Chino Moreno is the best front man ever, i think)))
