He must be so distraught…

Former Eagles bassist and founder Randy Meisner has been placed on a 72-hour psych hold, according to reports.

The musician apparently threatened to kill himself after his wife Lana's violent accidental death on Sunday night, and authorities have held him for his own protection.

According to law enforcement sources speaking to TMZ, Meisner — who has a history with substance abuse and violent threats — was "distraught and unstable."

Evidently, he made a credible enough suicide threat that police thought it best to immediately take him in for a psych hold.

Investigators are still looking at Lana's death as being accidental — they believe she was rummaging through a closet to find a pair of shoes when she moved a rifle bag and, somehow, the trigger was activated, firing the gun and killing her instantly.

So, so sad all around.

This is awful.

Lana Rae Meisner, the 63-year-old wife of Eagles bassist and co-founder Randy Meisner, was found shot dead at their Los Angeles home in what authorities are terming a "freak accident" on Sunday night.

It all started around 5:30 p.m. Sunday night, when authorities were called to the couple's home in Studio City, California, on a domestic violence call with a "possibly intoxicated male" at the premises.

Awful. There's nothing else than can be said about this.

The driver was not wearing a seatbelt, and was pronounced dead at the hospital soon after.

Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng Has Passed Away At The Age Of 42

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad SadInjury

deftones chi cheng rip

This is just so incredibly sad, especially given what he's endured the past few years.

Chi Cheng, the bassist for the Deftones, passed away over the weekend at the age of 42.

As you may recall, the musician was left seriously injured after a car accident in 2008, and while he'd been in a semi-conscious state since, he had been showing signs of improvement over the past few years. Sadly, he lost the battle around 3am early Saturday morning.

His bandmate, Chino Moreno, confirmed the news via Facebook with the message:

Rest in peace Chi Cheng.

Our heart goes out to all of his friends, family, loved ones, and fans during this truly difficult time.

We know that he is now somewhere better, away from all of the pain and obstacles he'd faced during his last few years on Earth with us.

Read the announcement of his passing, written by Gina Blackmore on his fan site…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

90s Rocker Collapses Onstage!

Filed under: Music MinuteHealth

Hey, Bill Leen- we Found Out About You- and we're worried sick!

The Gin Blossoms bassist was in the middle of a concert, performing the band's runaway 90s hit Hey Jealousy when he just dropped to the stage!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the song performance that almost ended in tragedy! Forward to about 3:20 to see the fall and-

-recovery!!! That's right, he's going to be OK! Better than being KO!

Was the rocker sick? Or just Leening too far back? A rep for the band says he was just suffering from exhaustion from touring so much.

Either way, we sure are happy he's better now!
