Last week we wrote about the tragic car crash that included Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, original article HERE.
After a week of uncertainty, Doctors are now saying they are "optimistic" about Cheng's recovery. A message on the band's website said Cheng, who was in a coma when taken to hospital, had passed the crucial 72-hour mark. The band wrote;
Chi was able to hear and respond to his father's request to move his lower lip,â€His father also administered a tendon reflex test, of which both legs responded with movement.
The band also said that Chi's family would like to thank fans for all of their â€œlove and supportâ€.
Deftones have been busy for the last year writing and recording their sixth studio album, 'Eros', which is due out next April.
