I'm really surprised he lasted this long. His whole life has been in shambles.
Anyone remember when he was on Dr Drew show and he was on the roof getting high and all sketchy.
Dude recently fought his own band mates on stage at a festival.

A recent live performance of Butterfly sounds like it was performed by an homeless bum right off the streets

Some folks are definitely too young to have remembered the band he was in, but they were popular for a second with that Butterfly song. It has been 25+ years.

Oh I remember Crazy Town as they hit at the end of the 90s and early 2000s. I don't know what genre they would be considered though. Was it nu metal or more edm?
