In 2008 Chi Cheng, the bassist for my favorite band, Deftones was in a fatal car accident leaving him in a coma. The site http://www.oneloveforchi.com/ was created as a fundraising site for Chi's medical expenses (up to $100,00 with the initial target being $20,000, has been raised). The latest update of his condition was posted on the site on April 1st 2010.. http://oneloveforchi.com/index.php/sitting-beside-a-miracle/
Hoping for the best in his recovery.. Chi is such an amazing musician and an inspiration. Get well soon Chi..
The band has since continued to make music however with their friend Sergio Vega filling in for Chi as the bass player. The bands latest album 'Diamond eyes' is set to be released in May of 2010. From hearing the albums first single 'Rocket skates', which was released in February, it will certainly live up to the standard of brilliant music they have so far created.
