Weezer rocker Mikey Welsh twitters his own death

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.

He predicted the exact location and time of his own demise on Twitter, just two 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.’

There is no official word on cause of death yet, but police are said to suspect the involvement of narcotics.

The news came via a message posted by his family on Twitter and Facebook yesterday, which read: ‘We are deeply saddened to announce that Mikey Welsh passed away unexpectedly today.

‘He will forever be remembered as an amazing father, artist, and friend. May he rest in peace.’
