Chi Cheng (Deftones bassist) dies at the age of 42

Well this sucks. I was a big fan of them growing up. RIP homie.

Numerous news outlets are reporting that Deftones bassist Chi Cheng died early Saturday morning following a battle to recover from a 2008 car accident. He was 42.

In a statement posted on the fan site Oneloveforchi.com, Cheng's family writes that the musician was taken to the emergency room where he died at 3 a.m. Saturday.

According to Billboard , the musician was in a semi-conscious state since the Santa Clara, Calif. car accident that had initally placed him in a coma. Over the past few years, Deftones have continued to record and perform without Cheng.

yeah sad times, but probably for the best as far as his quality of life over the past few years.

I still am a big fan of them, their last two albums (without Chi) have been excellent.

Was very saddened to hear this. Grew up with Deftones, who seem to be getting back to their best in recent albums. Last year it was reported that he had woken from his coma and was becoming more reponsive by the day, so sad to hear of his passing.

I highly recommend seeing Deftones live, great band.

RIP Chi.
