Deftones bassist out of coma

By | Published on Thursday 7 May 2009

Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has come out of the coma he has been in since November last year, after being involved in a car crash in California. His condition has apparently improved so much since the weekend that he has now been moved out of intensive care.

A message posted on the One Love For Chi website, set up by the band and Cheng’s family to help raise money to cover his medical costs, reads: “Hi all – just wanted to update everyone and let you know that Chi was released from ICU over the weekend and is no longer on any sort of life support. His symptoms continue to improve. So keep the prayers coming… they are obviously helping a great deal! Thanks everyone for your support and well wishes… It means so much to the Cheng family”.
