Deftones’ Bassist Chi Cheng Dies at 42
Deftones’ bassist Chi Cheng has died following the horrific car crash that left him in a coma for over four years, the Sacramento Bee reports. Cheng had recently been allowed to continue his recovery at home after showing some signs of improvement — including the ability to move his leg when commanded from a “semi-conscious” state — but was rushed to a hospital when his heart stopped on early Saturday morning. Read the report at the Sacramento Bee for more information.
This is horrible news, and there isn’t much else to say about it. Nothing but the best to Chi’s family, friends, and bandmates from the entire staff at MetalSucks. R.I.P.
