Chi Cheng RIP

Post by Fenderfan » Sun Apr 14, 2013 9:38 pm

Heard today of the passing of Chi, the original bassist and one of the founding members of Deftones. Been unable to play since he was involved in a car accident that put him in a coma for months. Was brought from almost vegetable state to responding and acknowledging people, and reportedly his heart just stopped?
Was an awesome sight seeing him live. An animal on stage.

My reason for picking up the bass :(

He deserves the rest.

It was a long drawn out 5 years, where he seemed to be making progress.
Very sad. RIP Chi
