I am shocked and devastated to hear of the passing of former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh tonight. Mikey was a genuinely talented and funny guy and brought many of his fans much happiness throughout the years. It’s no secret he had his demons, and I hope and pray he has found his peace. I will never forget the 5 minutes we spent chatting after Weezer’s show in Athens, Georgia during their 2001 tour. I really am speechless. Prayers to his family and friends.
