    This is surprising
    Always is when it is someone so young

    perscription drugs . . .. . . legality of the drug just does not seem to matter these days

    This generations cocaine is prescription drugs, but unlike cocaine most of the people that abuse these drugs don't live.

    What people aren't noting is that another member got kicked out for vehicular manslaughter. Band really fell apart.

    I was playing Loser on my guitar this morning before I heard this, sad.

    Sad. I always wondered what happened to them. I enjoyed their albums.

    The Better Life is still one of my favorite CDs. They actually had a pretty good run in the 2000's.

    I only self medicate when I'm in really bad shape, and that's usually just an off the shelf tylenol. Prescription pills are a plague in this country. Of all the things in my childhood, watching family members stumble around looking like late stage parkinsons was one of the most unsettling.

    Man, 3 Doors Down apparently is a bunch of druggies. First a member kills someone driving under the influence, and nowan overdose.

    I'm sure a lot of bands are, but they've had bad luck/press.
