Chi Cheng Suffers Infection
2012-06-17 by thumbcrusher | 59 Comments

Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has suffered a pneumonia infection and rushed to hospital, just days after being released from his New Jersey treatment centre and flown to his home state of California, where it was hoped he could continue his rehabilitation.

The latest update (as of June 17th) from oneloveforchi.com has been that, while still on life support, he is "looking better than expected" and was able to respond to visitors in "small but deliberate ways."

Cheng recieved terrible injuries in a car accident in November 2008 and was in a coma for many months before progressing into a semi-concious state in mid 2009. Hope was raised again in February this year when it was reported he could move his legs on command.

Fans can get updates on his condition from the website oneloveforchi.com and can also donate money to help fund his hospital treatments.

He will probably never play music with Deftones again, but I really hope he can make a huge recovery. The man has got will power for days.

Like DotEight said, he may never play with Deftones again, but he has to stay strong to recover.

Agreed.

Those 'special' kind of massages should be part of his rehabilitation program.

I think he'll fight it off, he's halfway through immortality at this point.

Shit, I just checked the website. How long has it been up? They have really minimal donations. I'd love to help out, but I have no cash to give. Are all Deftones fans bums? I know I am.

On a not so serious note, I wonder did his parents realize they named their son after the noise people make when they make some big bucks????

I can't recall them ever saying that. I've always heard them say they'll release it at some point in the future they just don't know when at the moment.

They didn't release it because Cheng got in that car crash. So I assume they planned to release it when he was all good.

well that would be the ideal situation, but it might not be possible to do it like that. i think they just want to know what's going to happen before releasing it then go from there. but chino has said that it will definitely be out one day.
