Did Ex-Weezer Bassist Mikey Welsh Predict His Own Death on Twitter?
We predict this is one of the oddest stories you’ll see all week: Ex-Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh was found dead in a hotel room last week, and in a strange twist, he might have actually predicted the date and locations of his demise on Twitter just a couple of weeks earlier.
On September 26, the 40-year-old artist posted the tweet below, saying, “dreamt i died in Chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). need to write my will today.” He even corrected himself in a tweet a little later, saying his vision was actually of the weekend after next. He was found dead on Saturday, October 8 in Chicago.
There is no word yet on how Welsh died, though police do not suspect foul play. Toxicology results won’t be available for a few weeks, but assuming he didn’t take his own life, it’s definitely eerie.
