Biography

Chi Cheng may be the bassist of Southern California alternative steel music group the Deftones. In fall 2000, Cheng produced his single debut using the spoken-word discharge Bamboo Parachute. The 25-monitor album offering Cheng’s eclectic poetry was offered just at Deftones displays and with the band’s website. Fifty percent the proceeds from the album visited homeless teenagers and WEAVE, a Sacramento-based non-profit agency focusing on domestic assault and intimate assault avoidance, and sufferer assistance.
