Dustin Diamond's Dying Wish Was to Meet Tool's Justin Chancellor
Published Feb 02, 2021Dustin Diamond — the actor best known for playing Screech in Saved by the Bell — sadly succumbed to cancer yesterday at age 44. And while many pay tribute to the fallen actor, details surrounding his final days have revealed that one of Diamond's dying wishes was to meet Tool bassist Justin Chancellor.
As Diamond's friend Dan Block told the UK's Sun newspaper, "There are two things Dustin asked for … the ability to talk to Justin Chancellor about music and to be able to visit Disney World to see Star Wars Galaxy Edge."
Block added: "Dustin was learning to play several Tool songs and wanted to start a Tool tribute band. He was in the process of starting the band before being diagnosed with cancer. He would play the song and play along with his bass while watching YouTube videos."
However, Diamond sadly wasn't able to ever meet Chancellor before his passing.
As previously reported, the actor had been hospitalized last month and soon revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer. His condition apparently declined quickly, and he had been taken off of breathing machines to be placed into hospice care.
