    It is wrong to assume that the man died from drugs. There's a possibility it might have been alcohol instead!

    [tongue-in-cheek]Maybe he died of auto-erotic asphyxiation?
    [/tongue-in-cheek]
    If I was a betting man, I'd say drugs (or a complication caused by drug use), considering his age-group and profession. Play hard, die young!
    Now, if the guy was clean-cut, had kids and a happy family life, good job before the rock gig, etc. then it probably wasn't drugs.
    What was he like? Nice down-to-earth guy who loves all living things and colorful bright fluffy rainbows?
    Or a hard-drinking womanizing rocker?
    Give me some background guys! [​IMG]

    Hey mike I I think What Mark was saying was that here is one of their songs which talk about Bodies hitting the Floor anf Now his Body hit the Floor get it thats Ironic


    back yo the topic at hand. If a musician Dies the first thing that people assume is that they died of drugs...........NOW who do we Blame for that. The Media hell No these people Brought it on them selves.

    I didn't own any Drowning Pool CDs, but I really liked their song "Bodies".

    Sad to hear of his passing especially since they were such a new band with a lot of potential and were continually being more successful.

    WOW, big surprise here:
    Details Emerge in Drowning Pool Singer's Death
    Drowning Pool singer Dave Williams may have choked on his own vomit while he slept off a bout of heavy drinking, according to sources close to the band

    I was right. It WAS alcohol, not drugs that killed him. (yes, I know that alcohol is technically a drug!).

    What a shame.

    Isn't that how Bon Scott, former AC/DC frontman, died?

    I'll bet you that Drowning Pool's record execs are secretly happy. Sales are going to go through the roof.

    Now it is even more ironic that he was a frontman for a group called "Drowning Pool" [​IMG]
    Never heard of the guy, but I have heard of Drowning Pool and that Bodies song that was mentioned here..
