Can a person predict their death?Former Weezer bassist, Mikey Welsh, was found dead in his hotel room this week of a possible drug overdose. Two weeks ago on Twitter, he wrote a cryptic message about his future.
Mikey Welsh tweeted, “Dreamnt i died in Chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today.” He then added, “correction- the weekend after next.” Wow, pretty creepy.
Welsh left the band Weezer in 2001, after a nervous breakdown. Born under the astrology sign of Aries, highly energetic and high strung, he struggled with many issues.
In an interview in 2007, Mikey Welsh said: “Basically, a lifetime of doing drugs and being undiagnosed as having post traumatic stress disorder, and borderline personality disorder finally caught up with me when I was 30 years old. At the beginning of a 3-month European tour with Weezer, I started slowly falling apart. Without getting too graphic, by the time the tour was winding up, my weight had gone down to about 140lbs (I’m 6’2″) and mentally completely wiped out. By the time I got to Boston, I was having a complete nervous breakdown. It ended with a severe suicide attempt (an overdose). I was found and rushed to the hospital where I had come to within minutes of my heart completely stopping. I was in a coma for a few days, and woke up in a lockdown psychiatric ward.” Rock Salt Plum Interview
Sadly, Mikey Welsh wasn’t able to control his demons and crossed to the other side. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Hopefully, he will have finally found peace.
