Mikey Welsh, the former bassist of Weezer, was found dead in his hotel room in Chicago on October 8th. Investigators suspect it was a drug overdose. Welsh was in the Windy City to watch his old band headline the Riot Fest.
What’s even more sad and a bit unnerving is that he somehow knew he was going to die then…
On September 26th, Mikey wrote this prediction on his Twitter page,
“dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today.”
Welsh left Weezer back in 2001 after having a mental breakdown that led him to attempt suicide via drug overdose. He leaves behind two kids.
