Since November of last year, Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has been in a semi-conscious state following a car accident. While we previously covered the site and charity set up for him, One Love For Chi, an all-star lineup of musicians and friends have recorded “A Song For Chi.” Led by Korn bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, the instrumental also features members of Metallica, Hatebreed, Slipknot, Disturbed, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, Sevndust and P.O.D., as well as other Korn members.
Visitors to the site can download the song for free, as well as watch the video, but the hope is that anyone checking out the song will make a donation to help Chi’s medical expenses. All of the musicians donated their time, and 100% of the donations will go to covering his medical expenses. His brother has stated that Cheng’s insurance company stopped paying for his treatment in January, and his mom has said that not only was his house returned to the bank, but even his dog was given away.
We’ll list all those that performed in the song after the jump. While the song itself isn’t all that great, the song isn’t the point. If you’ve ever liked the Deftones, then it’s absolutely a worthy cause to donate.
