Mike Starr, The original bassist for legendary Grunge band Alice In Chains, has died at the age of 44. Police report that his body was located at a house in Salt Lake City, Utah on Tuesday Afternoon. The cause of death is currently unconfirmed but a spokesman from the police dept said: "There is nothing to indicate that this was foul play by another individual."

Starr's father told TMZ "It's a terrible shock and tragedy." Starr battled drug addiction for many years, and went public with his substance abuse problems in 2010 when he appeared on Season 3 of VH1's 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.' Dr. Drew Pinsky expressed his condolences via Twitter: "Devastating to hear of Mike Starr succumbing to his illness. So very sad. Our prayers are with his family." He left Alice In chains shortly after the release of 1992's "Dirt" and later admitted that he left because of his drug addiction. His fellow band member, singer Layne Staley, died of a drug overdose in 2002.

So a sad end to the musician who will have been remembered with fond recollection by fans of the band.
