An Interview with Deftones Bassist Sergio Vega

Sergio Vega re-joined the Deftones in 2009 after tragedy struck the band in late 2008 when bassist Chi Cheng was left in a “minimally conscious” state following a car accident. Vega had previously filled in for Cheng ten years earlier in 1999 when Cheng had been unable to tour with the band. Lost in Reviews had a chance to catch up with Sergio prior to the Deftones performance in support of their 2010 release Diamond Eyes in front of a sold out crowd on Monday April 25 at the Voodoo Lounge in Kansas City. We failed to mention it in the video but fans that would like to help and get the latest news on Chi Cheng’s condition can do so by heading to for the latest updates.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
