Deftones have held two benefit shows for Chi, on the 19th and the 20th at the Avalon in LA. They've been joined on stage by various people, from Tommy Lee, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Cypress Hill, Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan, POD and so on. The above video had Tommy Lee as a second drummer and Mike Shinoda on the piano.

In other Chi news, he had an appointment at UC and he's in the system now. Which means he is accepted for treatment and rehab by a hospital, which means he IS getting better and not considered a lost case. Thank God. One step at a time Chi, you can do it.
One love for Chi.
