mr. magick commented this on a GrungeReport.net Mike Starr story:
Okay people. Lets set this story straight- if anyone actually gives a crap – Travis was in Utah getting sober and staying around people in recovery and working on his purple album. He was living with mike starr and he and mike were to go to Las Vegas and do a show in which travis [meeks, Days of the New frontman] and mike had called me and asked me to come to Utah and hang out with them and drive them to the show and possible other various future shows. I declined for personal reasons but told travis that I might do it down the road. Mike and travis both were battling opiate addiction and were both being prescribed their own different medications for that addiction. Mike was taking methadone and xanax and that’s what he overdosed on. It was his own medication and not anyone else’s that he was taking and was on at the time of his death. Travis called me the next day and told me that he had found mike dead in his bed the morning after mike had overdosed. Travis was severely upset and was in shock for a few days following the encounter. Travis has since left Utah and is in Louisville, KY right now but is getting ready to head to Louisiana for a show. Charlie Colin from the band “Train” will be playing bass and Paul Culligan will be playing drums. Paul is a bad M*ther F*cker on the drums btw. Travis and mike’s relationship was that of pure friendship and also mike was going to be playing bass for travis. R.I.P. mike starr.
