R.I.P. Mike Starr

March 8, 2011 / Posted by:

Mike Starr, the original bassist for Alice in Chains, is performing with Layne Staley and the other members of Angels in Chains up in heaven. Mike was found dead in a home in Salt Lake City, Utah this afternoon. Mike’s cause of death is not known. He was only 44.

Mike’s addiction to the bad shit was documented in the third season of Celebrity Rehab and he declared himself 6 months sober when season four aired. But Mike’s sobriety didn’t last. He was busted with Xanax and Opana pills by Salt Lake City police last month.

Rest in peace, Mike.

And I’m hoping those lace white shorts made the trip to heaven with him.
