R.I.P. Chi Cheng

Chi Cheng was the original bassist for the Deftones, and played bass on every Deftones album from 1995 until 2006, playing with the band until 2008 when he was involved in a very bad car accident and went into a coma. No official cause of death has yet been announced. I will never forget hearing the Deftones for the first time, and being amazed at the power and full tone of the bass, thinking how insanely good it sounds to have almost hip-hop style bass in a hard rock/metal band.

Thank you for your contributions to music Chi, rest in peace.
