It’s no secret that I’m a big Deftones fan – have been since I was 16/17 – and to say I’m saddened by Chi’s passing is an understatement. Condolences go out to his hard-working family, friends and Deftones themselves. They all worked incredibly hard in keeping Chi as comfortable and safe as they possibly could during the years since that tragic accident that rocked everyone who knew him.
I remember reading/hearing about something Chi would often do in his community: he’d gather all his instruments, take them down to his local community and would teach people how to play music. It’s rare you’d ever find that real sort of kindness and goodwill in anyone who has managed to sell Platinum records.
We’re all going to miss you Chi, and you’ll forever live through the great music you played. One Love For Chi.
