Nick Menza was a great drummer , he had power and feel , his beats were infectious.
Today comes the news Nick has died from a massive heart attack while performing with his band OHM in LA at the frighteningly young age of 51.


RiP Nick , Rockin till the end.

Whilst I'm saddened to hear of another death in the musical fraternity, that's a better way to go.

I'm sure he crammed a number of lifetimes into his own short life.

Rock in peace dude!!

Gah.

Posting because the callout to Nick at the end always made me chuckle.

His death was so metal. (To paraphrase Nathan Explosion)

Rip ... Condolences to family and loved ones.

I guess if you're going to go, might as well go doing what you love. RIP Nick!

In my metaller days, I was Megadeth over Metallica


51 isn't much in the scheme of things and yet he'd lived more of a life than most of us. Groupies, travelling, influence on society and groupies...that's a good life!

Going out on stage is like a warrior dying in battle.

I joked to my husband a few days ago after they said John Berry (Beastie Boys) died that this year was the death of his youth. Not sure I want to mention Menza's passing to him now, I kinda feel like I jinxed his favorites
