Deftones - Bassist In Coma After Car Accident


Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is in a coma in a San Jose hospital following a car accident in Santa Clara on Monday.

Frontman Chino Moreno said the following: "It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night (November 3rd). 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."

Cheng, 38, was born in Stockton and also is an accomplished poet. The Deftones had been working on its sixth studio album, "Eros," set for a spring 2009 release.

Yeah but that coma thing kind of makes it difficult to use that arm.

Still, even though I'm not really a fan of Deftones, I still hope he'll wake up.

Geez, did the accident have to happen 4 days after the 1 year anniversary of the Decapitated tour bus crash? That's terrible that the Deftones bassist Chi Cheng went into a coma. I hope he recovers.
