JULY 5, 2024 – Late Crazy Town frontman was sober and happy a few months before his accidental drug overdose … and seemed committed to staying on the wagon. Shifty’s friend and sober coach, Tim Ryan, says he was living in a tent in downtown L.A.’s MacArthur Park after relapsing, and was homeless when he died. He also said music was always his therapy, and joked about recovering addicts being the best artists.

Unfortunately, Shifty wasn’t able to stay sober … he was found dead last month and his manager says he died from an accidental drug overdose after mixing prescription drugs with street-purchased drugs.
