    Ex-Alice in Chains bassist dies in Salt Lake City

    – 2 hrs 39 mins ago

    SALT LAKE CITY – Police say officers have found former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr dead in a home near Salt Lake City's downtown area.

    Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Shawn Josephson says officers responded to the home Tuesday afternoon. He says details about the cause or circumstances of the 44-year-old's death were not immediately available.

    It wasn't immediately clear who owned the home or phoned police.

    Starr was the original bassist for Alice in Chains, an iconic Seattle-based band that made its mark on the grunge scene of the early 1990s. He left the group in 1993.

    Josephson says Salt Lake City police arrested Starr last month on suspicion of possession of medications without a required prescription.

    Starr appeared on the third season of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" in 2009.

    he was even on celebrity rehab just a year or 2 ago and he looked so good on the reunion show!! but I know that Mike still carried around alot of guilt from when Layne died because they were together or Mike left and then came back & found Layne dead. They were best friends. So as of right now, there is no apparent cause of death or if it was accidental or not accidental

    that really is a shame...prayers to his family...and also to any of his fans.
