Deftones Guitarist Comments On Chi Cheng Death

Chi Cheng

I keep saying it, but it’s true: The world is fucking falling apart.

Look at Boston today. People just standing around, watching runners finish, and BOOM!, a garbage can detonates and takes your fucking legs off.

I am staying inside, people. No more large gatherings for me. My thoughts go out to everyone up there in Beantown. You folks are strong. You’ll get through this.

I’m still trying to get over the death of Chi Cheng. I am just devastated over his passing. Not that his life was much better than death towards the end there, but the fact that he’s gone just pains me.

It pains Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter, too.

He has broken his silence on Cheng’s death.

“There are so many things I can say, and yet at this moment, none of it matters or compares to the loss everyone feels,” Carpenter writes.

“There will be a hole in our lives where Chi once was. But that will be filled everyday with all of our love and memories we all have in our heart. He will always be here because of love. It’s time we all give our love and best, and do our best to love. Especially ourselves, Chi would want that for everyone. All our healing will begin with love. I love you, Chi.
Stephen, for Deftones.”

The world’s gone mad.
