Chi Cheng, Bassist for Deftones
flat tire

Hello everyone,

It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night. He is currently in a Northern California Hospital in serious, but stable condition. I am on my way up North right now to be by his side along with the rest of our band mates and family. Chi is one of the strongest people I know, and I'm praying that his strength will get him through this. Please say a prayer for him as well.

-chino [moreno, of the Deftones]

Other news sources are saying he's in a coma. Our prayers are with him.

Deftones were working on their follow-up to 2006's Saturday Night Wrist, while blogging away about it.

To the ever-ballsy ANONYMOUS: From someone who actually lost someone close in a car accident, I say go heartily fuck yourself and don't come back out. The world doesn't need you.

Whether you like the Deftones or you do not, wishing anyone anything but a speedy recovery is sickening. Hopefully this man gets better and is able to live a productive rest of his life, whether or not he ever plays a note of music again.

i am sickened by the comment made on this page. what kind of sick person would wish somebody die. I love the deftones and I love Chi Cheng. He is a very nice, and very polite person and an incredible bassist to my favorite band the Deftones that have never made a shitty song or let me down ever in the eight times i have seen them in concert or in the thirteen years I have been a loyal fan. He was considerate enough to come out after the show and pay respects to his fans and he is forever going to be a person who made an impact in my life. To whoever wrote that disgusting and morbid comment I will pray for your sanity as you walk the same earth as someone as great as Chi Cheng. Please leave your incomprehensible comments to your pitiful and probably very lonely self.

I like Deftones and that was really bad news for me. What is Chi's current condition? Did he rehabilitated and still playing with his band?
