Deftones has announced their latest fundraiser effort for their bassist Chi Cheng, who remains in a semi-comatose state following an automobile accident in November 2008. The band is offering a new and exclusive remix of the title track from the latest album, Diamond Eyes. The track is available through the One Love for Chi website, for $0.99. All of the proceeds go to support the effort to benefit Cheng.
Cheng’s family is trying to raise enough funds to send Cheng to the International Brain Research Foundation in New Jersey, where doctors have had success with reviving patients in a semi-comatose state.
Deftones is on tour, covering Europe, Australia and Asia for the next few months. Bassist Sergio Vega continues to fill in for Cheng.
We wish Chi and the Cheng family all the best.
