Chi Cheng 
  Looks like Heaven needed another angel: I just found out the devastating news of Deftones bassist, Chi Cheng, 42, who just passed away April 13, 2013, after being in a semi-conscious state for 4 1/2 years, since his serious car accident on November 4, 2008.

  I've been a long-time fan of Deftones, and hearing that he was in a serious accident (where he wasn't wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle) that led Cheng into a coma, I have been praying hard for his speedy recovery. 

  It hurts every time I hear of these talented musicians passing away, especially so young.  I guess us Deftones fans won't get the chance to see Deftones as a 6-piece band with 2 bassists: a fully recovered Chi, and Sergio Vega (of Quicksand), who has been touring with Deftones since Chi's accident.  I was personally really hoping for that reunion.

  One positive thing though:  Chi isn't suffering anymore, and he is now in a better place.  His loved ones have gained one hell of a guardian angel.     

Rest in peace, Chi.
