knowledge #12: Mikey Welsh, painter and ex-bassist of Weezer dead

Mikey Welsh, a painter and former bassist of Weezer has passed away at 40. He was found in Raffaello Hotel in Chicago on 8th October 2011. During his lifetime, he was blessed with two world class skills. He had a highly successful art career. His works were sold to numerous collectors, other musicians and business executives. He is also the bassist of Weezer for 3 years and played on The Green Album. Weezer issued statement praising Welsh’s time with the band and his later artistic works. The band played their shows in dedication to the ex-bassist’s honor. Strangely, Welsh had predicted his death and wrote on Twitter, saying “dreamt i died in chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today.”

SYB: I love the naive art paintings...but hey, I can do it too.
