Mike Scaccia, the guitarist for rock groups Ministry and Rigor Mortis, has collapsed onstage and died, whilst celebrating his band mate Bruce Corbitt’s 50th birthday.

Scaccia, aged 47, was playing with Rigor Mortis at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday night (December 22, 2012) when he collapsed, stunning his fellow band mates and those in attendance at the gig.
