DEFTONES Bassist Pens Autobiography

June 18, 2003

DEFTONES bassist Chi Cheng has revealed to MTV.com that has been spending his time lately writing about his experiences in his rock band.

"It's another passion of mine, just like the other guys are very passionate musicians and they have all these other great side projects," Cheng explained. "It's just something I like to do."

The bassist has written about 200 pages so far, but says he's writing it for himself and has no plans to publish it. "Maybe posthumously," he said. "It's too autobiographical. That's why. I'll get in a lot of trouble. A lot!"

Cheng's spoken-word collection, "Bamboo Parachute", was released in 2000 and is still sold at shows.
