Nick Menza, a previous drummer of legendary rock band Megadeth from 1989 to 1998, has died at the age of 51 following an onstage collapse on Saturday in Los Angeles. His management gave out the following statement: “Earliest reports indicate [Menza] suffered a massive heart attack and was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital”.

 

At the time of the incident, Menza was performing with his band OHM with former Megadeth member Chris Poland. Many will remember Menza for his work on the 1990 critically acclaimed album Rust In Peace, or 1992’s Countdown To Extinction, some of Megadeth’s most famous and best received work to date.

 

Megadeth mainstay, took to Twitter to post his feelings about the subject:

Hey, I'm Sam and I'm a big fan of music from all genres, with some of my favourites being Experimental Hip Hop and dream pop. I also love video games and their soundtracks, particularly Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid games.

Have your say....
