KORN, DREAM THEATER, MACHINE HEAD Members To Take Part In All-Star Jam For DEFTONES Bassist

Members of KORN, DEFTONES, P.O.D., SUICIDE SILENCE, MACHINE HEAD and SKID ROW will take part in an all-star jam to benefit DEFTONES bassist Chi Cheng on January 16, 2010 at The Slidebar in Fullerton, California.

The following artists are scheduled to appear, among others:

* DEFTONES members
* KORN members
* P.O.D. members
* SUICIDE SILENCE members
* Dave "The Snake" Sabo (SKID ROW)
* HAIL!

Chi has been in a semi-conscious state since being involved in a horrific accident in November 2008, and his family has accumulated an overwhelming amount of medical bills that insurance does not entirely cover.

Cheng is 39 years old and is a poet as well as a musician. He released a CD of his poetry called "The Bamboo Parachute" in 2000.

Cheng has been a member of DEFTONES since its formation in 1988. The band released its debut disc, "Adrenaline", in 1995 and scored a platinum record with 2000's "White Pony".
