RIP Mikey Welsh

This past Sunday, I woke up to the news that Mikey Welsh, the former bassist of my favorite all time band Weezer had passed away at the age of 40.  I spent the rest of the day completely in shock, and thoughts of Mikey, life, and mortality were never far from my mind.

My personal Top 5 Weezer moments

The Special Goodness visit my house in 1999.
Weezer.com/pat was the place to be for Weezer fans in 1998-1999. Pat gave us some of our only glimpses into the Weezer world at the time. It was pretty exciting. A picture here, a picture there. They mentioned the band Fu Manchu quite a bit. I didn't know what to make of it, but when Pat announced that the Special Goodness were going on tour and they…
