Vodka & pills? Sounds like it could even be a possible suicide. It wouldn't surprise me with the ridicule and shame he has brought on himself over the last few years...

Either way, Rest in Peace. very sad for his wife and children. :(

sounds like a suicide. but my loved one drank eeverything and took all her pills before hand. they aren'[t sharing every thing and that's okay. peoiple dont die in hotel rooms like this from natural causes usually. much love to his family and those that loved him. this saddens me and all those that lost those that left us too soon. xoxo......

What are you gonna do with the leftover vodka? He's not using it - can you send it to Linds? Money's kind of tight around here lately (don't tell anyone) and Linds could spend her money on a little coke. OK?

Well I for one am shocked! ..... not really....but I am sad. Those dayum pills are the devil. They are the hardest addiction to kick. I hate to say it but they should only be prescribed on your death bed!

Alcohol mixed with drugs can kill you.

A self-inflicted gunshot to the head also can kill you.

I say suicide. Sad, but painfully realistic when people lose the will to live.

I ran into him back in the early 90's and he told me he was a diabetic and had to watch how much he drank due to the sugars in beer, etc. Maybe this was related to his death.

Not sure if this was a suicide or not. A lot of these older rockers still party like they are in their twenties and the body can take just so much. Too bad. I quit drinking and doing drugs many years ago, not because I wanted to, but because of the toll it was taking on my innards. Now that I am closing in on fifty, I feel like I'm in my 30's. I think like I'm in my 20's. And I act like I'm in my teens. Thank God I quit because it might have been the death of me. Just remember kiddies,
