Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza passed away May 21 in Los Angeles, California while on stage. Initial reports are that he suffered a massive heart attack while only three songs into the show.
Menza was performing with his new band Ohm at the Baked Potato nightclub. After collapsing, two patrons tried performing CPR on him until medics arrived. The EMT crew worked on him for 25 minutes but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Menza had recently finished his autobiography, “MenzaLife”, which is due to be released next month. He was scheduled to fly to Cape Cod May 22 to put the finishing touches on the comic book version of his autobiography.
