When Courtney Love decided to rename her band, she also had to get some new bandmates!

So how does a famous rockstar find a bassist? The same way a garage band does, apparently- the Internet! Though it didn't work out so well for Courtney. She says:

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

3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell was arrested Friday night after he clipped a truck with his car speeding in Nashville, Tennessee, causing the other man's vehicle to strike a guardrail and flip over in an embankment. 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!

Sucks To Be Him! Ex Dio Bassist Jimmy Bain ARRESTED For A DUI!!!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!

Holy what?!?!

We're guessing this sort of attention is not the kind classic '80s metal band Dio wants.

One of the former bassists, Jimmy Bain, was arrested after he got into a minor car accident and failed the police's sobriety test.

They also found a whole bunch of Vicodin pills in the car which totes did NOT belong to Bain.

He was subsequently arrested and
