Remembering Deftones Bassist, Chi Cheng

One of the ways I cope with a musician’s death is to listen to their albums nonstop, which is what I did all day on Sunday after learning of Chi’s passing. I played Around the Fur first and drove around listening to "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" because not only is this my favorite song off this album, but it had the right mood. 

Chi belonged to one of my favorite bands, and I had seen the Deftones play live in 2010, but they were missing Chi who was in a coma. I was really hoping he would recover, so this was such sad news to hear. But I will remember him for being a part of a great metal band, who helped me deal with my teen years with their awesome music. R
