Conaway -- a notorious substance abuser -- had reportedly fallen into a coma after suffering an overdose earlier this month ... and doctors were not able to revive him.

Sad, but hardly a shock. It was clear on all the shows he did that he just couldn't kick his habits.

By the way, he was also one of the stars of Taxi and was probably equally well known from that (that's where I first saw him). You should mention that in your posts too.

Dr. Drew tries; sometimes he's successful, sometimes he's not. It's the addicts fault, not Dr. Drew's.

RIP.
