Since the cat is out of the bag...I was told by my buddy who manages him, that Johnny was a really great guy, who had an addiction problem. I was told he was clean for roughly 2 years and roughly around the time the album was to come out, he fell back into it which ultimately ended his life.
As you may or may not know. When you have been clean and you relapse and your body is no longer prepared to handle the lifestyle you once lives, it basically can just completely overwhelm your heart and system and shut you dont for good.
My roomate died directly upstairs above us simply by having a few drinks and some oxy. Our dog was laying next to him and know one even knew he was dead until our other roomate walked up stairs to find him there passed away. He was in his early 20's
Makes you think guys. Keep your heads in the right place
