Hier, Chi Cheng, bassiste historique des Deftones, est malheureusement décédé à l'âge de 42 ans. Pour rappel, il avait été victime le 4 novembre 2008 d'un grave accident de voiture (collision à presque 100 km/h, sans ceinture de sécurité)  qui l'a longtemps plongé dans le coma puis laissé dans un état semi-végétatif. Ce samedi, il a été victime d'un arrêt cardiaque dont il ne s'est pas remis. R.I.P., tout simplement.

Voici le communiqué publié sur le site One Love For Chi:

"Our dearest Family,

This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.

He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.

With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)"
