Mike Starr (Alice in Chains)

On March 8, 2011, at 1:42pm, police were called to a home in Salt Lake City where they found 44-year-old Starr’s body. A private memorial was held for Starr at Experience Music Project in Seattle on March 20, 2011. There were roughly 400 people in attendance, including former bandmates Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney. Dr. Drew Pinsky has said that Starr’s death was the result of “a prescription-drug overdose.” Drug-addiction counselor Bob Forrest has described Starr and fellow Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew alum Jeff Conaway (also now deceased) as having “such severe addictions.”
