Weezer Rocker Mikey Welsh Found Dead At 40 After Predicting The Exact Time And Place Of His Death On Twitter
Mikey Welsh, the former bassist of Weezer, has passed away from a suspected drug overdose at the age of 40.
The father-of-two was found in a hotel room in Chicago yesterday; he was in the city to watch his old band headline the Riot Fest today.
Eerily he predicted the exact location and time of his own demise on Twitter, just weeks ago.
On September 26, he wrote: 'dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today.'
Before adding: 'correction - the weekend after next.'
As well as this accurate prediction, the New York-born musician, who had become an artist and moved to Vermont, also suggested a prescience of events to come on his Facebook page.
Showcasing one art piece, he wrote that it was available for $250 dollars:
'if i am still alive at time of purchase, price to increase exponentially if i expire prematurely.'
