Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is believed to be in a coma after a serious car crash earlier this week. Deftones singer Chino Moreno posted the following on the band's Web site yesterday: "It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night. He is currently in a Northern California hospital in serious, but stable condition. I am on my way up north right now to be by his side, along with the rest of our bandmates and family. Chi is one of the strongest people I know, and I'm praying that his strength will get him through this. Please say a prayer for him as well." The Deftones have been working on their sixth album, Eros, for the past year.
(prayers, good wishes, and healing energy to Chi Cheng.)
