Michael Edward "Mikey" Welsh (April 20, 1971 — October 8, 2011) was an American musician, best known as the former bassist of Weezer. He was one of several musicians that played with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo in Boston during Weezer's hiatus from 1997 until 2000. Following original bassist Matt Sharp's decision to leave Weezer to focus on his group, The Rentals, Welsh was ultimately chosen to take his place. Welsh played with Weezer from the time that they regrouped in 2000 until August 2001, when Welsh was hospitalized following a suicide attempt. Shortly afterwards, he retired from music to focus on an art career. Welsh passed away in 2011.
