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.

I think it's about time Celebrity Rehab is canceled for good. Mike Starr? DEAD, Jeff Conaway? DEAD, Seth Binzer? Almost DEAD, Dennis Rodman? Major alcohol relapse, many others have relapsed. What a stupid show. They pay D-List addict celebrites 1000's of dollars to go on tv rehab for 3 weeks. What do you think they spend the money on when they get out of rehab Drew???? Drugs and alcohol. Time to shut down this show for good. Even though it's entertaining, I believe it's dangerous for these "celebrites". They view it as a gig, a career move, and get paid tons of money, and go get high with it.

He did not "fall into a coma"...he was placed into a coma per the hospital to give his body and brain a rest and to detox. However, if this is not a wake up call for him there may not be another detox. Hope he gets it this time.

OooooNooo!    

TMZ sats: ". . . he's still not fully aware of his surroundings."
In other words, he's back to his normal mental state.

Maybe if this idiot went to a real doctor instead of going through quack reality show rehab he wouldn't be such a loser.

Yay! So happy to hear that he's coming out of it. Now what he needs is long term treatment FAR, FAR away from Hollywood and the limelight so that he can focus on himself and get well. I did it years ago and let me tell ya, if I can get clean & sober, anyone can. Get well, Shifty!! <3

There's nothing easy about getting off drugs and no doctor can do it for you. You have to want to get clean yourself. Blaming Dr Drew is ridiculous!

This is why people should just stick with marijuana if they want to get a buzz. You can't overdose on that. It's relatively cheap, there's no hangover the next day, and you're able to get a pleasant buzz without losing control of yourself. I tried harder drugs back in my younger days, and didn't care for them. Never been much of a drinker either..I'll smoke the sh_t out of some weed though.
