The founding and, then, former bassist of Alice in Chains -- Mike Starr -- has been found dead in a home in Salt Lake City, according to a report first filed by TMZ.com. Police were called to the house at 1:42PM on Tuesday and found controlled substances including Xanex and the painkiller Opana, along with the dead body. Starr was 44.

In 1987, Starr was friends with guitarist Jerry Cantrell and agreed to join his new project with vocalist Layne Staley and drummer Sean Kinney, under the name Alice in Chains. The Seattle-based band was signed to Columbia Records two years later, in 1989, and cashed in on the Seattle grunge movement when it broke in the early '90s, following Nirvana's unexpected, massive success. Suddenly, Alice in Chains was branded as an alternative rock band, instead of the heavy metal machine they first imagined themselves as, and the group scored a hit with the song, 'Would?,' which was featured on the soundtrack to the generation-defining film, 'Singles.'

Starr either quit the band, or else he was fired, in 1993. The official reason for his departure was a lifestyle change. On the record, Starr wanted to spend more time with his family, less on the road, and the split was amicable. Years later, Starr publicly said that, in actuality, he was kicked out due to his drug use, which was spiraling out of control.

In 2010, Starr joined the cast of VH1's reality television series 'Celebrity Rehab' for its third season. The show documented his recovery from heroin addiction and Starr returned to the series the following season as a special guest, appearing as something of a mentor for that season's recovering addicts.

Last month, on February 18, Starr was arrested in Utah on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance. We'll update this tragic story as it develops.

Actor Michael Gough, who starred as Batman's loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth in four films, passed away at age 94, according to E! Online.

Gough, whose career began in 1947 with 'Blanche Fury,' starred as Alfred in 'Batman,' 'Batman Returns,' 'Batman Forever' and 'Batman and Robin' between 1989 and 1997.

The actor, born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, rose to prominence early in his career with starring roles in the U.K. version of 'Doctor Who' and film versions of both 'Phantom of the Opera' and 'Dracula.'

Gough appeared for the last time on the silver screen in Tim Burton's 1999 'Sleepy Hollow,' and provided voice acting for the Burton-produced 'Corpse Bride' in 2005.

He is survived by his wife and two children.

Maverick's Claims A Surfer...so sad.


Sion Milosky had surfed waves just like this one before. But this time, the colossal wall of water at Mavericks plunged him deep into the ocean and would not let him go.

Milosky, a famed big wave surfer from Hawaii, died late Wednesday after wiping out and being caught in a two-wave hold-down off the coast of California's infamous Mavericks Beach, south of San Francisco. Other surfers watched on in horror as a rogue wave broke on top of 35-year-old Milosky, a fixture in the small, elite world of big-wave surfing.

"He was really deep and he makes the drop, and the end section comes and just explodes behind him as he straightens out," Chris Killen, a filmmaker who taped Milosky's final wave, told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. "I'm looking over just devastated. His head's flopping, and I could tell he was blue from far away."

In the moments after the wave broke, other surfers said they saw Milosky's board popping up out of the water, ominously. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Nathan Fletcher, another big-wave surfer in the water at the time, jumped on a jet ski and sped toward the board in a bid to rescue Milosky. But 20 minutes later, Milosky's body was found floating face down in a nearby jetty.

"He looked perfect," fellow surfer Grant Washburn told the paper. "They'd removed his wetsuit, his eyes were closed, no apparent damage of any kind. Just a perfectly peaceful, healthy person. You felt like you could just jolt him back to life."

Other surfers tried to administer CPR, but Milosky, a husband and the father of two young daughters, was pronounced dead at a local hospital at 7:46 p.m., Lt. Ray Lunny of the San Mateo Sheriff's Office told AOL News today. The coroner said the official cause of death was drowning.

The waves at Mavericks can reach heights of 80 feet and draw big-wave surfers from around the world. Milosky's feats on the giant waves were chronicled in a 2010 video made by filmmaker Daniel Russo and posted by Surfing Magazine.

Thursday, despite the tragedy, surfers were back in Mavericks' massive barrels again. On the beach, the message "WE LOVE YOU DADDY" was scrawled in the sand, and appeared to have been written by Milosky's children, according to Santa Cruz Patch.

Big-wave surfer Ken Collins, who witnessed the accident, said the wave that killed Milosky was at least 50 feet tall.

"This swell was really huge," he told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. "It was one of those swells that was really spread out. It was hard to see what was going on with everyone out there. [Milosky] had this huge smile on his face and just turned around and paddled into this 50- to 60-foot wave. That was the last time I saw him. The wave just sent him straight to heaven."

I think this is the right place to post this. I haven't been around in so long, with all the added content and changes on TC I've forgotten how to get around this place.
I did a search and found nothing mentioning it so... here it is.
