Another benefit concert has been organized for Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, who continues to recover from a 2008 car crash that initially left him in a coma. Chiís story is one of the saddest Iíve ever heard and whenever I hear about Chi or think about his situation, I want to cry.
A show first scheduled for January 15 at the Slidebar in Fullerton, California, the event is currently being revamped to be a multi-night affair benefit. More details on the show will be revealed soon.
So who is playing the event? Not the Deftones. Doesnít that strike anyone else as strange? P.O.D., Dredg, Head, Hoobastank, Anew Revolution, Crucified, The Accident Experiment and others. Man, this show would be worth it just for Dredg.
Also in the works is an all-star jam session featuring members of Shinedown, Anthrax, Breaking Benjamin, Atreyu, Papa Roach, Lit among others.
Money raised at the benefit will help cover the costs of getting Cheng to New Jersey to be under the direct care of the International Brain Research Foundation.
