PHIL DEMMEL To Take Part In All-Star Jam For DEFTONES Bassist

Machine Head

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
* Dave "The Snake" Sabo (SKID ROW)
* Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER)
* David Ellefson (MEGADETH, F5)
* Phil Demmel (MACHINE HEAD)
* Dave Buckner (PAPA ROACH)
* Joe Loeffler (CHEVELLE)
* Marcos Curiel (P.O.D.)

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".
