Stephen from DEFTONES releases statement about the passing of Chi Cheng (RIP)

In case you missed this, former DEFTONES bassist Chi Cheng died on Saturday, April 13, in a Sacramento, CA hospital. As previously reported, Chi was in a tragic car accident on November 4, 2008. As a result, he suffered some very serious brain injuries. Ever since the accident Chi was in a state of semi-consciousness after suffering severe TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

His DEFTONES bandmate and friend Stephen Carpenter has made a statement in behalf of the band:

"There are so many things I can say, and yet at this moment, none of it matters or compares to the loss everyone feels. There will be a hole in our lives where Chi once was. But that will be filled everyday with all of our love and memories we all have in our heart. He will always be here because of love. It's time we all give our love and best, and do our best to love. Especially ourselves, Chi would want that for everyone. All our healing will begin with love. I love you, Chi."

- Stephen, for Deftones
