Fans are in mourning this week after Nick Menza, drummer for the influential metal rock band Megadeth, suddenly passed away after collapsing onstage during a performance in Southern California. He was only 51 years-old.
According to The Political Insider, Menza died of a massive heart attack at a Los Angeles-area club Saturday night. He had been the longest-serving drummer of the band Megadeth, performing on five records over nine years, including 1990’s thrash metal landmark, “Rust In Peace.”
