Deftones Statement On Chi Cheng: “He Will Always Be Here Because Of Love”:
Deftones have posted a moving statement on the tragic passing of bassist Chi Cheng, who left us on Sunday morning after a lengthy and brave battle for life after being involved in a serious car accident in 2008.
“There are so many things I can say, and yet at this moment, none of it matters or compares to the loss everyone feels,” says guitarist Stephen Carter. “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.”
