Shifty Shellshock

In a Coma

4/2/2012 6:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Celebrity Rehab" star Shifty Shellshock is currently in a coma in an L.A. hospital -- TMZ has learned.

According to sources, the former Crazy Town singer has been in the ICU since last Thursday and is completely unresponsive. It's unclear what put him there -- but people close to him believe it was drug-related.

Shifty is scheduled to appear in court this week for a pre-trial hearing -- after his February coke arrest. We're told he was extremely anxious about the possibility of going to jail.

Even though it's been coming for a long time, I'm still sad about it. His band came out when I was in jr.high and I loved that album. From there it went to hell, and he has been in a downward spiral ever since. He got on Dr.Drew's show the first time, and the second they only let him back for ratings. Sick. I feel bad for his son, and his family. I wish he'd been able to clean up.

Ok, if you have really ever watched any shows of Dr. Drews in relation to drug abuse he made it clear that very few of them will be able to make it and remain sober. He is in a very tough job. He and his staff gave the patients some sort of tools for life but in the end drugs wins.

:( sad. I was rooting for him to get his addiction under control.

I hope he comes out of this and if he does that it was his "rock bottom" and he changes his life...finally.

Dr. Drew has had hundreds and hundreds of patients through the years and have helped most of them. He deals with very sick people who are at the end of the line in life for the most part. It's hard to bring someone back who wants to live in purple haze!
When you were good, you were really, really good but when you were bad you were on the roof! Sorry man.

I feel so sad for his son. His little guy on the show loves Shifty unconditionally. I really hope Shifty gets better. I am routing for you Shifty but if you're body is broken and can't get better I pray to know that someone reads this and gets help today!

Very very sad. It breaks my heart for his kids (i think he has 2 boys)... I think we all knew this would eventually happen but it is still awful and sad and things like this are never funny and never will be

Knew it was coming, there was no help for him.

It's sad but he is almost better off. Nobody wants to live their life like he does. He's tried to stay clean but he can't.

Another success story from Dr Drew's joke of a rehab show. Well, at least it feeds his huge ego.
