Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza, who played on many of the metal band’s successful albums in the 1990s, died Saturday (May 21) after collapsing on stage during a concert. He was 51.
Menza was playing with his new band Ohm at the The Baked Potato in Los Angeles when he suddenly collapsed during third song of the performance, CNN reports. Paramedics could not revive him.
The suspected cause of death was a massive heart attack, J. Marshall Craig told the Associated Press.
