Alice in Chains' Mike Starr's Memorial To Be Held At Space Needle

Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, 44, who appreared on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab in 2009 passed away in early March 8th, 2011 from mixing methadone and anxiety medication in a desperate attempt to stay sober.    There will be a memorial for Mike held today at  Seattle’s Space Needle where family and friends plan a  water fountain tribute show.

TMZ has the scoop:

Mike’s sister, Melinda Starr, tells us everyone is gathering around International Fountain — next to the Space Needle — where a water show is usually set to classical music … but for the memorial it’ll be rocking to Alice in Chains tunes.  Melinda says officials at Seattle Center offered to change the music for the memorial — and adds Seattle Police are providing security, free of charge.  Melinda says some of Mike’s old Alice in Chains mates will also be at the tribute — which is open to the public and begins at 4:00 PM.

Sadly Mike was reportedly determined to get clean and start a new life. The official cause of death has not been determined yet.
