The drummer — who had been with Megadeth between 1989 and 1998 — was performing with his band OHM at the Baked Potato Jazz Club in Studio City when he suddenly collapsed and became lifeless.

According to TMZ, paramedics at the scene were reporting the death as most likely being a heart attack.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine took to Twitter and had a difficult time wrapping his head around the horrible news (below):

Ugh.

To die in the middle of a performance… so scary and unnerving.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, loved ones, and fans. RIP.
