R.I.P. Chi Cheng

Legendary Bass player for the Deaftones Chi Cheng has passed away 4 years after in now infamous accident. He’d been in a semi-comatose state since a traffic accident in 2008, but had shown signs of improvement in recent months.

Cheng’s mum Jeanne – who was instrumental in setting up oneloveforchi.com – says: “He was taken to the emergency room at 3am today. His heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear. “He fought the good fight”. You fans stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone.

“Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you.

The website oneloveforchi.com has been overloaded with traffic but I managed to grab the families message before it went down, it read as follows:

Our dearest Family,

This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency [sic] room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.

He fought the good fight. You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.

With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)

R.I.P. Chi, we all love you
