…And the sad RIP 2016 list goes on with another notable musician, this time from the heavy metal scene. Former Megadeth drummer, Nick Menza died last Saturday, aged 51, while doing what he loved most: drumming. He suffered a heart attack during a concert with his band OHM in Los Angeles, and was unfortunately pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. Menza was involved in Megadeth between 1989 and 1998, participating in albums as ‘Rust In Peace‘, ‘Countdown To Extinction‘ and ‘Youthanasia‘.

Upon hearing on the news Dave Mustaine tweeted: ‘Tell me this isn’t true!‘.

Nick Menza is survived by his two sons and wife.
