Alice In Chains Rocker, Mike Starr, Dead At 44

|

Sad news to report. Season three Celebrity Rehab alum, and former Alice in Chains bassist, Mike Starr was found dead in Salt Lake City, Utah. The cause of death is yet unknown, but police were called to the home where he was found at 1:42 pm yesterday. Our condolences to his family, who are obviously reeling from the news. Starr’s father told TMZ, “It’s a terrible shock and tragedy”.

Starr was arrested in 2009 in L.A for a felony narcotics charge which wasn’t the first time he was in trouble with the law, having being booked before on various counts of drug possession, reckless driving, and driving under the influence. He was also arrested last month for carrying six opana and six alprazalam tablets for which he did not have a prescription.
