2011: Mike Starr, the original bass player for the rock band Alice in Chains, dies of a prescription drug overdose at age 44 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Starr, who had played with the band from its formation in 1987 until 1993, had been featured in the third season of the VH1 reality television series "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" in 2010, which documented his treatment for methadone addiction. His subsequent stint staying in a sober living environment was then documented on the spinoff series "Sober House."
