    Default Shit, did anybody know about this???

    According to Deftones frontman Chino Moreno who took to the Sacramento band's studio blog Tuesday bassist Chi Cheng is in serious but stable condition following a car crash in California. Cheng is believed to be in a coma.

    "It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night," Moreno wrote on the band's site. "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."

    Little is known about the injuries Cheng who is a spoken-word poet outside of the band sustained in the accident, just as little is known about the circumstances surrounding the crash. According to The Associated Press, Cheng, 38, was injured in the crash Monday in Santa Clara, California.

    The Deftones have been recording their sixth studio LP, Eros, for nearly a year. The record follows 2006's Saturday Night Wrist. A source close to the band told MTV News' Metal File back in June that the album "sounds nothing like what they've done in the past." Cheng has also said in interviews that the album would be "heavy as f--- with a sh--load of groove. ... I always say this sh--, but I truly believe this album to be well worth the wait and appreciate all your support and kind loyalty."


    from mtv.com






    Thoughts and prayers go out to Chi Cheng, his family, and the Deftones......

    That seriously sucks...there are some damn good hospitals in the bay area though...

    Although the good news is, if the bassist is in the hospital, they wont be playing at any festivals anytime soon!

    Deftones bassist Chi Cheng in coma
    Frontman says condition 'very serious' after car crash

    By Jonathan Cohen, Billboard

    Nov 5, 2008, 11:07 AM ET
    NEW YORK -- Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is in a coma after being involved in a car accident Monday in Santa Clara, Calif., according to the Sacramento Bee. Frontman Chino Moreno confirmed Cheng's condition but declined to give further details.

    "I don't know everything that's going on -- I just know it's very serious," Moreno told the Bee, adding that he was on his way to a San Jose hospital to be with Cheng's family.

    The accident was confirmed by Warner Bros. Records, who said Cheng was in "serious but stable condition" but did not provide specifics.

    "Chi is one of the strongest people I know, and I'm praying that his strength will get him through this," Moreno added in a note on the Deftones' blog. "Please say a prayer for him as well."

    Cheng, 38, has been in the studio with Deftones working on the band's next studio album, "Eros," which is due in spring 2009 via Warner Bros. The Deftones' most recent live show was in mid-September in Peoria, Ariz.

    Well, at the very least, when he dies it won't be too hard to replace him. Bassists are disposable.

    I think James Jamerson is easily the best bass player ever.

    Quite probably. He was not only insanely talented, he was versatile and frequently understated.

    Passive Theory, you're an out there dude. You claim to be a bass player but you don't seem to have much respect for your craft. Some great examples were listed here already, but...
    umm...
    -Mike Watt
    -Joe Lally
    -Paul McArtney
    -Eric Avery
    -Charles Mingus
    -Dee Dee Ramone
    -Jaco Pastorius
    -Paul Chambers
    -Peter Hook
    -Tina Weymouth
    -Carol Kaye
    -Verdine White
    -Kim Deal
    -John Cale
    -Brian Wilson

    Study up, my friend.

    I was playing devil's advocate. You can't expect to make it in this world as a bassist and not have a sense of humor.

    Also, cheers for Peter Hook and Kim Deal.

    I don't know James Jamerson... but I don't know how you can claim that Bootsie is better than Les Claypool.

    You know James Jamerson if you've ever heard a Motown song. Even if you didn't know it at the time.

    As far as the "better" argument goes, how do you define that, anyway? What exactly does that mean? I love Les and Bootsy pretty much equally, but their styles are completely different. That's like comparing Eddie Van Halen to Eddie Hazel.
    Fuck.

    Eddie Hazel was better than Eddie Van Halen, and Bootsie is better than Les. They're both good comparisons in talent, but Bootsie and eddie h were both more adept at playing with the band rather than playing as the band. They have more interplay, more melody and more nuance in their performances.

    Point taken. However, is there not a time and place for the dynamic that EVH and Les Claypool bring to their respective outfits? I don't have Van Halen posters adorning my bedroom walls or anything, but...
