Chi Cheng – R.I.P.


Dopo 5 anni di stato semi-vegetativo è morto a 42 anni lo sfortunato bassista dei Deftones Chi Cheng. Il musicista nel 2008 era rimasto coinvolto in un terribile incidente d’auto. Sabato mattina il suo cuore ha ceduto per sempre. Questo il comunicato della famiglia:

“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)”

Nessun comunicato ufficiale al momento dalla band, che in estate sarà in Italia (LEGGI). Chi Cheng fu poi sostituito da Sergio Vega fondatore dei seminali Quicksand.
