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.

Filed under: Tech TalkNostalgia

Tom has been up to a lot since his Myspace days!

For anyone who had a Myspace profile back in the day, the name Tom will always hold a special place in our hearts!

But with the invention of Facebook and Myspace taking on a COMPLETE makeover a few years ago, our first friend has fallen out of our Top 8's and into obscurity!

So naturally we have to ask, what is Tom up to these days?

Well the answer is pretty simple! He's living the good life!!!

Tom Anderson is happily retired at the ripe old age of 44-years old and his net worth is somewhere in the neighborhood of $60 million dollars!

So now he's doing what anyone would do in that situation by traveling the world and taking TONS of pictures which he posts to his Instagram profile (cleverly titled @myspacetom)!

Sure, he may not have gotten his very own Oscar-nominated movie penned by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher, but we're glad to hear he's doing well!

Besides, we still feel pretty bad about un-friending him several years ago! LOLz!!

So, curious to see what Tom looks like now? Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
