Deftones’ Chi Cheng injured

Bass player involved in car crash

The bass player for the Deftones is in a San Jose hospital following a serious car crash.

The rock band’s singer, Chino Moreno, says 38-year-old Chi Cheng was injured in the crash Monday in Santa Clara. Moreno told the Sacramento Bee that he didn’t have many details but that it’s “very serious.”

The Deftones came together in Sacramento in 1988 and released their first album in 1995 on Madonna’s Maverick Records label. A song on their 2000 album, “White Pony,” earned the band a Grammy Award for best metal performance.

The Deftones have been working on their sixth album for release next spring.
