    In an incredibly sad turn of events, Mike Starr, the original bassist for Alice In Chains was found dead today in a Salt Lake City, UT home according to TMZ.

    Starr was last in the news last month when he was picked up for possession, and had been on the third season of Celebrity Rehab. Starr, tragically, is the second member of Alice in Chains to die of an overdose, as original frontman Layne Staley died of an overdose in 2002.

    Truly sad. I watched the season of Celebrity Rehab he was on and then his return in the following season to encourage the new patients. It seemed like he was actually headed in the right direction for once. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
