My friend, Jeff Conaway passed away today from complications of a lung infection and drug interactions.
Grease star Jeff Conaway, who has battled a long-time addiction to alcohol and drugs, is in a deep coma after succumbing to bronchitis.
Conaway has been battling substance abuse addiction for years, as he even appeared on Celebrity Rehab to battle his demons stemming from cocaine and alcohol abuse. The actor was found unresponsive in his home on May 11 in critical condition and was admitted into an Encino hospital in a coma.
He died today from complications from his condition.
Jeff was a friend, and we worked together on the “Dante’s Inferno Documented Project.” He was a fascinating person, interviewee and had an enormous capacity to
feel compassion. His career was a testimony to his extraordinary talent.
He will be missed.
His is survived by his sister.
