Deftones Bassist Seriously Seriously Injured in Car Crash!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad


Chi Cheng, bassist for the Deftones, was in a serious car accident earlier this week.

Band member Chino posted the following message on their MySpace page:

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.


Speedy recovery, Chi.

    I'm surprised you even know who the Deftones are, seeing how they have been around since the late 80's and I never see you mention them, but instead promote crappy music. Many bands are influenced by this band and it would be a huge loss if he doesn't pull through. Get better Chi and the band will not be the same without you. I am so looking forward to the new album and hope you are there laying down the tracks for that.

    that's sad. I love that Deftones song Changes. I play it all the time. What a great bass playing on that too.

    Deftones are the only band in my opinion that have truly stood the test of time and reinvented themselves time and time again without coming off as sell outs. TRUE ARTISTS! This is truly horrible news for Deftones fans and the many many bands who have been influenced by them alike. Get well Chi, youre in my prayers!!!

  25. 25

    the deftones were the first band Ive had ultimate respect and admiration for…reppin sacto! chi is the shit and my prayers go out to him, the Deftones, and his family. Much Love!!!

    ps….im suprised Mr. Perez that you would have this news up here…nonetheless thanks dude!!!! pray for chi!!!

    This is sad. Hopefully he pulls through with limited lasting effects.

    And Chino is my cat's namesake.

  27. 27

    NOOO!!!!I can't believe I hadn't heard about this sooner! I really hope he has a good recovery.
    I've been looking forward to their next album, and he is a kick ass bassist.
    I am amazed that perez even poseted this. I did't know they were famous enough.

    I love the Deftones. I hope he's okay.

    First of all I can't beleive Perez wrote about the Deftones…I thought this place was reserved for Paris and the Jonas brothers….but I have to say that I truly am sad, i hope Chi gets better and he is still able to play and live his life normally…Deftones is my favoritist band in the world and I don't know what I would do without any one of them or their music :(

    deftones are one of the best sounding bands! They are so unique and different! Hope everything goes well best wishes 4 Chi and his Family

    And I can't believe you posted this. You always write about the disney brats or the Hills skanks.
    Next thing you'll be posting about Glassjaw or At The Drive-In.

  32. 32

    Oh God, right when they're recording the new album, too! I really hope he makes a full recovery fast, I love The Deftones. I've met the band before and they're all great guys.

  33. 33

    Get well soon. Will say a prayer for everyone.

  34. 34

    Alt.metal does not seem like such an awesome middle aged career path. best wishes on a speedy recovery, ChiCheng!

    God I love the Deftones. My prayers are going out to Chi & fam.
