R.I.P. Mike Starr

Mike Starr

I wish this was my brutal sense of humor and that I’m just fucking around, but it’s not. Mike Starr, former Alice in Chains bass player, has been found dead in his home in Salt Lake City. He was 44.

Members of Alice in Chains have issued a statement on the loss of their former band-mate, as well as members of Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue and Dream Theater.

No official statement has been released about the cause of death, though in the light of recent events, we can strongly speculate that it was a drug overdose.



Metal Militia strikes again

Mike Starr

When I say “Metal Militia,” I actually mean cops who are busting on musicians. *queue Cops theme song*

So, we already know Paul Di’Anno will probably spend some time in prison for tax benefit frauds; last week Vince Neil started serving his 15-day sentence for DUI and speeding charges. And the latest victim of doing crimes and getting caught for it: former Alice in Chains bass player, Mike “Gangstarr” Starr. Apparently, he was caught with an illegal substance. At first we thought cops busted him with a Creed CD, but it was just unknown drugs. What will the Celebrity Rehab starr do when someone pays his $20.000 bail and he gets out? Will he appear in another season? Seriously speaking for a second, someone’s addiction isn’t anything to be laughed at, even though we’re kind of past that point already. Oh well now… Make the jump and see the mugshot.
