Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Remains In Coma

Rough times still for the Deftones and their fans as it was announced recently on Deftones.com that Chi Cheng, bassist for the Deftones, remained in a coma after being involved in an accident November 3rd.

I found the following while checking out the Deftones’ blog:

Chi remains in a coma, and as of this morning there’s been no significant change in his condition. Last week he was moved out of the Intensive Care Unit and transferred to a brain rehabilitation hospital in Northern California. The hospital specializes in the care and management of traumatic and non-trauma related brain injuries with a team of highly skilled therapists, nurses and consultants. He’s in great hands.

It’s always tough to see a rock star involved in something so tragic.  Not only is Chi Cheng a member of the very important heavy rock act, he is also involved in his community helping the homeless.

My thoughts go out to the big guy and his family.

For Chi…

The band’s sixth studio album titled Eros is set to be released early 2009.
