Mike Starr, the Alice In Chains bass player who was tragically found dead yesterday, was reportedly mixing methadone and anxiety medications only hours before his passing.
According to his roommate, the musician was using methadone recently in an effort to get sober, but had also been taking anxiety meds to battle issues resulting from an arrest last month.
"Mike was a beautiful person who was fighting to stay sober…I am going to miss him greatly."
So unbelievably sad. We guess as hard as he tried, he never could overcome his addictions.
Our thoughts stay with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
