Former Weezer Bassist Predicted His Own Death

Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh writes of dying on Twitter, two weeks before death
By Melissa Bell

“Dreamt I died in Chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep),” Mikey Welsh wrote on Twitter on Sept. 26. He said he needed to write his will that day.

Two weeks later, on Saturday, Welsh’s body would be found dead in a Chicago hotel room, discovered by the staff after he failed to check out. ABC’s Kevin Dolak first noticed the premonition-like tweet. It could either have been a very bad dream — or a call for help. He followed it up with a message to a friend, “correction — the weekend after next.”

It will take up to six weeks to get a toxicology report, Chicago authorities told the Associated Press, but there was nothing to indicated foul play in Welsh’s death at the age of 40.

Welsh rose to prominence as the bassist for Weezer, before dropping out after a nervous breakdown, his Web site reports. He became a full-time artist after leaving the band. His last tweet announced a new painting for sale: “Mama's little pills spilled all over the floor.”

Welsh had planned to attend a Weezer show in Chicago on Sunday night. The band still performed, dedicating their show to their former bandmate. Karl Koch, Weezer’s historian, wrote on the band’s Web site, “It saddens me and the guys in Weezer so much to say that our beautiful, creative, hilarious and sweet friend Mikey Welsh has passed away... Mikey was never one to shy away from the absurd, dangerous or strange, and he did so with a gusto few others had.”

Didn't see this elsewhere on the forums, but just heard about it via a local radio station. Sounds pretty crazy, the fact he tweeted it and then it happened.

Suppose we have to wait for the report to know exactly how.

It was a suicide... but seriously who gives a fuck? He was the former bass player of a band of nobodies...
