Michael "Mike" Scaccia, guitarist of Ministry, Rigor Mortis and Revolting Cocks, died last night after suffering a heart attack on stage at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas. He was 47 years old.

Frontman Bruce Corbitt stated: "My brother is gone! The only reason I am who I am is because of this man. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't even be in a band. RIP Mike Scaccia! The greatest guitar player I ever knew!"

You'll live forever in the minds and hearts of pure metalheads... I love your brilliant work, especially in Rigor Mortis' almighty "Freaks"!
R.I.P. axe-warrior, you were a great influence for many!

This makes me think of Dimebag a lot. Anyway, I'm always sad to read news like this.

RIP.

Indeed... Dude worked on Psalm 69, Houses Of The Mole and Rio Grande Blood which have some of the strongest riffs Ministry ever made.
A heart attack while playing? Oh man

RIP

RIP I don't listen to them but it is always sad to see a musician die. Especially, a day after the bassist for Iron Butterfly died. And this man was very young, 47 isn't very old.

That's fucking ugly. R.I.P.
