Mikey Welsh RIP

I was kinda shocked when I found out last night about Mikey Welsh.. Back in the early days of TMK when we used to have daily updates on the Weezer/Get Up Kids/Ozma tour of spring 2001, I recall Mikey as a very welcome and enthusiastic addition to Weezer's lineup.. Not quite Matt Sharp caliber, but certainly adding some excitement to the mix..

Mikey's contributions to the original-third-album demos (the one that should have been released around 1998/1999 instead of waiting an additional two years for "The Green Album") were recently uncovered on last fall's Death To False Metal LP, on two tracks which both made it onto our "2010's Greatest Hits" list...

Here's some of our favorite Weezer tracks from the all-too-brief Mikey-era...
