Former Alice In Chains Bassist Mike Starr: In Memoriam
On Tuesday afternoon (March 8th), former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr was found dead in Salt Lake City, Utah. The founding member of the seminal Seattle band was 44 years old and had struggled with addiction his entire life. His passing sent shockwaves through the rock world, and his death has devastated friends, fans and his former bandmates. In recent years, Starr had become more famous for his stint on "Celebrity Rehab" than he ever was as a musician, but his legacy as a key member of Alice in Chains should not be understated.

Man, I do love Rock & Roll but it takes its toll in human lives. More accurately, life on the road is the culprit, IMHO.

If it weren't for those hidden electrodes, Keith Richard would be 6ft under.
