I just heard that Deftones bassist Chi Cheng just passed away, and wanted to share a short story with you. In the early 2000s, we went out on a European tour opening for Deftones which we jokingly called the "Endless Winter Tour" because we followed cold weather around the globe for what seemed like forever. Spirits were a bit down, because it was always freezing and we kept getting sick.
I think we all have adventured this feeling before. Sadness. Emptiness. Tears – lots of tears. All of a sudden the sky turns black, and big rainy clouds push themselves in front of the sun that has been shining so brightly. Sure, there have been little clouds along the way, but that's normal right?
But now... now everything seems sad, lost and we feel like there's no turning back.
It's midnight here in California, so I've closed the poll for voting for the next book club selection. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff barely beat The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. So for our next book club we'll read How I Live Now, and the book club after that we will read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
I've been keeping a secret.
My secret is not something shocking, it's not about music, and it's not anything that would make an exciting gossip column. And the people who are impacted by this secret--the people who benefit from what I'm about to tell you--may never really know how it happened, because they do not have internet, may not have electricity, and almost certainly have never heard of Linkin Park.
