R.I.P Chi. I only got into Deftones after his accident, bummed I never got to see him.

I imagine it's cathartic for his family, friends and the band though, they can finally just say goodbye. Knowing the Deftones, the next record is going to be even more emotional than usual.

R.I.P. Chi.

I felt this song was most appropriate of all to play.

RIP Chi. I'm so sad to hear this. I love all of the music he made with Deftones, and I was really hoping he would get better someday. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Find a copy of "A Bitter Pill" article from Time Magazine recently to see what I am talking about.

In any case.... RIP Chi. I'm glad I got to see you play.
The way it was worded it sounds like he had heath insurance and lost coverage after he was injured.

I didn't realize the very high costs of everything. I now completely understand though. Either way, it is a very sad loss.
