Remembering Mike Starr of Alice in Chains

March 9, 2011 |  9:41 am

The 1992 movie "Singles," directed by Cameron Crowe, featured an array of Seattle grunge bands, including a segment with Alice in Chains performing in a bar (seen above in this YouTube clip).

Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, 44, was found dead in Salt Lake City, police said Tuesday. Starr, who had battled drug problems, had appeared on the reality show "Celebrity Rehab." He's not the first member of the band to die young. Singer Layne Staley died in 2002 at age 34.

We'll have more later at, but until then, let us know what your favorite Alice in Chains song is, in the comment section below.
