Mike Starr Memorial -- Grunge Salute at Space Needle

3/20/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Starr's memorial is going down today at Seattle's Space Needle where the family and friends have planned an awesome water fountain tribute show for the former Alice in Chains bassist.

Mike Starr Memorial

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. 

Starr was found dead earlier this month in Salt Lake City.

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.
