So sad to hear! Our prayers go out to his family and the band! And to whoever says its gotta be drugs just because he is a rock star. Go fuck your self!!!! It don't always have to be drugs it could have just natural causes so leave him and family alone!

I agree that the title was in poor taste. Another human being has gone out into eternity. Don't be so flippant about that.

Please change the title to this article? I am asking in sincerity for Paul, his friends, and family! It's flat out distasteful for the situation. I posted this yesterday and somehow it was erased..hmm.
RIP Paul
