Ex-Megadeth drummer Nick Menza dies after collapsing on stage

Drummer Nick Menza, who played on many of Megadeth’s most successful albums, died after he collapsed on stage during a show. He was 51.

Menza was into the third song with his new band Ohm when he collapsed late Saturday night, said Ohm’s manager Steve Bauer. Paramedics couldn’t revive him.
The band was playing at The Baked Potato, in Studio City, California.
Officials haven’t released a cause of death.
Alongside Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, Megadeth makes up metal’s “Big Four.” And for nine years in the early 1990s, Menza played on the band’s biggest releases: “Rust in Peace,” “Countdown to Extinction,” and “Youthanasia.”bw-Nick-Menza
