In a sad twist of events, Deftones' bassist Chi Cheng passed away at the hospital last night due to a heart attack after showing apparent signs of improvement in his recovery following a terrible car accident back in 2008 which left him with brain damage, then falling into a coma. He was 42.

His mother posted the following message via Oneloveforchi.com: "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 emergency 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)."

Another reminder how fragile life is - so make the best out of it.

RIP Chi Cheng

Over the last few years, I've really hoped that he would pull through, even if deep down I didn't feel like that had much chance of happening. Ever since his accident, I've kept in touch with news regarding his health, and I've long feared that this day would come.

For someone to die so young is a tragedy. I guess the only positive, is at least he is now at peace and is no longer suffering. RIP Chi.
