It's been a sad weekend for Weezer lovers.

The band's former bassist, Mikey Welsh, passed away at the age of 40 on October 8 in a Chicago hotel room. While the loss of Mikey is sad in and of it's self, the circumstances around his death are down right eery.

On September 26, he tweeted:

"dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today."
Not too much is known around what may have been the cause for his death, although The Daily Mail is reporting that it was a possible drug overdose.

Mikey isn't the first celeb who has been lost before their time. Check out other celebs who were just simply gone too soon.

    MCA died young but not before his time..he shouldn't be put in this list because it makes it sound like he accomplished nothing when he has been in music for decades.
