Deftones Play All-Star Benefit For Chi Cheng
Much missed Sacramento band Deftones played a benefit show for injured bassist Chi Cheng at the Avalon in Hollywood on thursday night, and enlisted a kind of Avengers style team to battle the evils of rising medical bills for their poorly friend. Members of Metallica, System Of A Down, Cypress Hill, Children Of Bodom, Suicidal Tendencies, Incite, Incubus, Sugar Ray, the mighty Far and motherfunkin’ Tommy Lee all pitched in to play a range of covers and whatnot. There were many special moments:
Deftones + System perform Aerials (with Chino doing his best Serj impression):
Deftones + Far perform Savory (Jawbox Cover):
This happens to be may favourite. Deftones with Rodleen Getsick perform Knife Prty. I’m loving Getsick’s Katy Perry-goes-metal look and she really knocks her vocals out the park. She’s a better screamer than Chino these days:
Seeing a seemingly revitalised Deftones has reignited my love for the mercurial band. I’m gonna go stick Around The Fur on. You should too. Let me get you in the mood with some vintage ‘Tones.
