MIKE STARR ACKNOWLEDGED ON SEASON PREMIERE OF CELEBRITY REHAB

During the opening of Sunday’s Celebrity Rehab season premiere on VH1 Dr. Drew mentioned the passing this year of two former Celebrity Rehab cast members: original Alice In Chains bassist Mike Starr and Grease star Jeff Conaway.

“The loss of Jeff Conaway and Mike Starr only strengthens my resolve to fight this deadly disease.”

    My heart still breaks every time I see a pic of Mike. I still can’t believe he came so far and yet didn’t make it. RIP

  • Andrei

    It breaks my heart as well.

    He seemed like he was doing so great after CR…

    On a funnier note, I vividly recall around late March 2010 when the episode ran during which Mike was ‘forced’ to clean the toilet stalls at some restaurant as part of his therapy. No way was a rock star or former one going to engage in such a thing, so after a valiant effort he’d had enough and announced, “You go scrub the fuckin’ toilet! Go suck my dick! I ain’t scrubbin no fuckin toilets!” He lit up a smoke and left.

  • Chris Sage

    he was a real rock star

  • Ashley

    I hate how sweaty he looks in that picture.

    RIP.

  • Chrissyb

    I watched the season he was on & it broke my heart. Crushed me when he died.

    R.I.P. Mike. Now your with Layne. Your band was awesome. Glad I got to see you and Layne play a couple of times.
