Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is recovering well after a serious car crash last week (November 3).

Cheng has been in a coma since the incident, and is now said to be in a stable condition and responding well to treatment.

Speaking on the Deftones blog a statement said Cheng had responded to his father’s request to move his lower lip and his legs had also responded with movement after a tendon reflex test.

There was also a shout out from Cheng‘s family thanking the off duty EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) who stopped to help Cheng after the crash, and to all fans who had left well-wishing messages.

The blog added: “Doctors continue to remain optimistic, and the energy at the hospital remains very positive.”
