The comatose bassist Chi Cheng of Deftones left our world at 3:00 AM last night due to a heart attack. He is survived by his mother, sister, son and widow.
Cheng showed progress in emerging from his coma last year after an experimental treatment failed to wake him and shortly afterwards was diagnosed with pneumonia. Cheng was seriously injured in a car accident in November of 2008. After several long years, Cheng sadly did not manage to emerge from his coma.
The website OneLoveForChi.com issued the following statement:
"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 [sic] 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 (website) 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!"
