HOLLYWOOD HOOKUP (FOX44) – Former “Weezer” bassist Mikey Welsh was found dead in a Chicago hotel this weekend. We won't know how he died until a toxicology test comes back. Welsh was 40-years-old. He left the band in 2001 after suffering a nervous breakdown.
– A life-size statue of the late pop star “Falco” was unveiled yesterday in Austria. That's where he is from. Falco is best known for his 1986 chart-topping hit "Rock Me Amadeus." He's the only German singing pop artist to climb to number one on the U.S. charts. Falco died in 1998 in a car accident.
– And also this weekend, Sir Paul McCartney got hitched to 51-year-old American trucking heiress Nancy Shevell. It was in an intimate ceremony and the same London venue where “The Beatle” wed his first wife Linda 42-years-ago. The couple said “I do” on the day that would’ve been John Lennon’s 71st birthday.
