Live Spoken Word Album From Late Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Due In January

Posted on by Oran

A live spoken word performance by late Deftones bassist Chi Cheng will be released in January of 2021.

Chi Ling Dai Cheng (July 15, 1970 – April 13, 2013)

Dubbed ‘The Head-Up Project‘, the limited edition album captures a set of spoken word poetry Cheng performed at The Paris Cafe in Sacramento, CA back in January of 2001.

The 24 track effort is currently available to pre-order here.

Cheng tragically passed away in 2013 after largely being left semi-comatose from injuries sustained in a car accident that took place in 2008. Cheng was found to have not been wearing a seatbelt at the time and since then, his friends and family have been advocating for seatbelt awareness via Buckle Up For Chi.
