Not so long ago we reported the fabulous news that The Deftones bassist Chi Cheng was slowly recovering from his long term coma, sadly Chi Cheng has caught pneumonia and has been returned to intensive care. I’m sure we all send him our thoughts and wishes to help him through this added illness.
Momma J, Chi’s mother has posted an update on the oneloveforchi site.
All of Roar Rock wish you well Chi and hope you are better soon.

Chi Cheng Update
As we at Roarrock told you a few days ago Chi Cheng from Deftones seems to be making progress, below is the video shot by Juan.
After being in a coma for 4 years, news come out that Deftones bassist, Chi Cheng has started to make progress and emerge from the coma
Also this update was posted on the One love website. And we want you to be kept right up to date with things.
“Chi is still not speaking.. isn’t able to comunicate. He does make noises at times. It does sometimes seem like he is trying very hard to communicate. He has every once in a while had great moments like the “leg lift video” where he moves on request. He does make eye contact and turn his head towards you. It does show on his EEG scans that there has been “progress within” when they compare initial scans to recent scans. These are all great things and definite signs of progress/improvement. Now for a dose of reality… although Chi has had great occurrences of progress.. there is also lots of time far and in between where nothing at all happens and he is non-responsive. But when you are around him.. even when he is non-responsive.. when you look into his eyes… it’s like he is speaking in another way. It’s very hard to explain. He is “there” and that is apparent.. but he is in no way out of the woods yet. Still LOTS of work ahead.”
Roarrock wishes everyone concerned all the very best and sends our love to Chi Cheng and all his friends and family.
God be with you Brother \m/
