Ex Alice in Chains Bass Player Mike Starr Dead at 44

He just couldn’t leave it. I remember when AIC kicked him out of the band for drug abuse in 93. He stopped over at my friends house in Seattle all upset that he was not in the band any more. Sadly this did not get him clean and now he has followed in the footsteps of Layne Staley.

Alice in Chains first video with both Mike and Layne. When I first saw this on MTV, I was blown away. Shortly after that I saw them open for Megadeth, I think, in the Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
