Sad day for a fanApril 14, 2013
I was playing some Deftones this evening when I found this news, that the Deftones’ former bassist Chi Cheng died this morning.
After a car accident in Santa Clara, CA back in 2008, Chi suffered major injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. This accident left Cheng in a coma.
In 2010, the musician showed improvement, responding to commands and moving his legs. After showing more signs of rehabilitation, he was moved to his home for recovery.
Cheng died last night at 3am in the hospital.
I have followed his story for some time now, on the site they built for the purpose. It’s a shame to hear of his sudden death, no real information as to why it happened. Sometimes people will write a little R.I.P. diary on Daily Kos, but I think I won’t this time…it’s late, and maybe not the right place for it anyway.
Well, his music survives, and continues to entertain, to make people happy…could do worse, in this life, than making folks happy.
