R.I.P. Texas Metal God Mike Scaccia
Most recently, Scaccia played on Ministry's Relapse album, released this year. Jourgensen, too paid online tribute to his friend this weekend.
"I just lost my lil' brother and my best friend -- the 13th planet compound is devastated, completely in shock and shattered," Jourgensen wrote on Facebook. "Mikey was not only the best guitar player in the history of music, but he was a close, close, close part of our family -- and I just lost a huge chunk of my heart today.
"Our lives are forever changed," he continued. "Life without Mikey is like orange juice without pulp -- kind of bland. I have no words to express what this guy meant to me, my family, my career... Everything!"
