My sister-in-law, who is a cop near Seattle, met him a few years back on a call. (He actually called about one of his neighbors or something.) They spoke for a little bit and she could tell he was really strung out on something. He asked if she had ever heard of Alice in Chains and said he used to be the bass player for them. She didn't believe him at first until she saw his place. He apparently had Alice in Chains memorabilia all over his apartment...and little else.

It was sad then to hear someone once so successful was living in such a place. Unfortunately, that is a common story.

RIP Mike
That's terrible, well you can imagine what all the money went on. RIP mike. 2 people from such a great band dying before their time. Sad.
Underworked, underpaid and under-sexed...
