After the news started spreading we saw how fans and friends turned to Twitter to mourn the death of the rock star.  Among them were virtuoso drummer Mike Portnoy, Dane Cook and Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx.

The history of Mike Starr and drugs never ceased.  He was in “Celebrity Rehab” were he recounted how his addiction got him kicked out of the band he helped forming. Just last month he was arrested after being caught with six Xanax and six painkiller pills.
