chi cheng



Chi Cheng, the bassist from the Deftones who was the vicitm of a terrible car accident in 2008 is now showing signs of waking up after four years in a coma.

A video was posted on The Gauntlet (see below) showing Chi in a semi conscious state lifting his legs.

Gina Blackmore launched a website to help raise awareness on Chi's condition and much needed funds to help Chi get the best possible care available and to provide for his personal needs. All donations are transferred directly to the Chi Ling Cheng Special Needs Trust.

To find out more, check out One Love for Chi by clicking here,/. Unfortunately, their donation tab is showing that they've only got 7% of the $250,000 goal for Chi's medical expenses. Hopefully, this good news will spur more people to donate.




NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.
