    Has anyone heard about this? Drug overdose i guess. I should probably ask if anyone really cares about this story.

    He survived a plane crash apparantly, yet died from too much sniff. Go figure.

    Yeah, I can just imagine the finger of death chopping his lines out for him.



    EDIT: I think a coked up Grim Reaper would be great. It would be like the wrath of God all over again, raining down fire and decapitating heads left and right. Just like the old days.

    meh, guy was all hype. Tried to kill himself in 1997, sober for five years, survived a plane crash last year, breaks up with his girlfriend - then OD's.

    Guys had plenty of opportunities, but this one was unavoidable.

    ye, he's been one of those "i'm the mother-fucking DJ!!!" DJs, never had much sympathy for fools with too much money who OD

    saddest thing is the twitter comments, pathetic how it's become a place for both the media to find out and print "celebs" views but also a cheap and easy way for a "celeb" to get in an the press, which honestly is all most of them care about, just further exacerbating the gap between us and them...

    wonder what did Diddy do or didn't Diddy do this weekend?

    who gives a fuck?

    Was involved with that new DJ Hero game thats out in October. Its gonna be good publicity for the game, shame it'll be for such a negative situation.

    But yeah, he was very much a 'trendy' dj in the vein of mark ronson when the truth is he wasnt that good. Still, sad to lose a life

    You make a fair point but do know how hard it can be to be a celeb??? NO, its not an easy lifestyle by any means and is probably a lot more lonely then you could imagine.

    When it comes to someones death, comments like yours should be kept to yourself, its just immoral and insensitve!! Sorry to have a go but ffs if someone said that about you when you died, it'd hurt.

    And the people who thanked that post should be fucking ashamed!
