Deftones bassist Chi Cheng died April 13 at the age of 42; he'd been in a coma-like state for several years following a 2008 car accident. Multiple Roadrunner artists responded to the news on Twitter, as you can see below:

My friend Chi passed away. My heart goes out to his family, and to my friends in @deftones. This is indeed a sad day…
