Shifty Shellshock

Out of Coma

EXCLUSIVE

Shifty Shellshock is now conscious again
Former Crazy Town singer and "Celebrity Rehab" star Shifty Shellshock is now conscious again -- after falling into a coma last week, TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ, Shifty had been on breathing tubes since Thursday -- when he originally fell into a coma -- but was successfully taken off them last night.

We're told Shifty is now responsive -- even speaking sporadically -- but he's still not fully aware of his surroundings. He is still in the ICU.

As we previously reported, it's unclear what put the singer into a coma -- but several people close to him are convinced drugs were to blame.

We’re told doctors believe he will make a full recovery.

One good thing that will come from this is that his body basically detoxed while he was in the coma and didn't have to deal with all the drama of that. Hope you get clean for good, Shifty!

Hopefully this will open his eyes and make him turn his life around... I am a strong believer that Everything happens for a reason and he was spared for some reason...

Oh yeah his body went through detox while he was in a coma so now he is going to stay clean. I wouldn't be afraid to bet he is going to go out as soon as he gets out of there and get on a high. He is a hard core druggy and I don't think Dr. Drew helped this guy at all.

It's unfortunate that he had to go through this, but maybe it will turn out to be the wake up call he needed to get his life back on track. Good luck to him.

This guy comes out of a drug-induced coma, but Greg Giraldo didn't? Why, universe? Why?

I am sending prayers to him and his family. My family has this terrible illness in it and it is soul ****tering! I hope he finds the strength every minute of every day to say no to drugs and yes to a drug free life and all the wonderful things it offers once his eyes are truly opened. God bless! This is tragic he is a young man and I wish people would stop being so mean to him and Dr. Drew.

Is he ever "fully aware" of his surroundings?
