Former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr has been found dead at 44 in Utah.
Mike Starr, who appeared on “Celebrity Rehab”, was found dead in a home in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The cause of death is not currently known, but police found no evidence of foul play.
Starr, who left Alice in Chains after their album Dirt in 1992, was arrested just three weeks before his death on an outstanding warrant related drugs charge. Starr was also carrying unauthorized prescription medications.
The rocker talked about his addiction issues on “Celebrity Rehab” last year, when he tried to overcome his drug dependence.
Starr’s father said of his son’s death, “It’s a terrible shock and tragedy.”
