    His brother died of heart issues. This would not be a surprise.

  • Billy

    This is in a way eerily similar to when Shannon Hoon died. Went to sleep on the tour bus and never woke up.

  • Felonious Punk

    It wouldn’t surprise me if the long-term effects of his drug and alcohol abuse are what caused his heart to give out. If that was the case, then I’m just glad he died peacefully in his sleep, rather than with eyes wide open and a needle in his arm the way everyone thought he would die for years.

    In the end, we should forgive the man for the poor decisions he made and focus on the great, timeless music he gave the world.

    He was abusing laxatives to stay thin believe it or not.
