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.
