According to TMZ, Mike Starr’s memorial is going down today at Seattle’s Space Needle where the family and friends have planned an awesome water fountain tribute show for the former Alice In Chains bassist.

Mike’s sister, Melinda Starr, told TMZ that everyone is gathering around International Fountain – next to the Space Needle – where a water show is usually set to classical music… but for the memorial it’ll be rocking to Alice In Chains tunes.

Melinda says officials at Seattle Center offered to change the music for the memorial – and adds Seattle Police are providing security, free of charge. She also says some of Mike’s old Alice In Chains mates will also be at the tribute – which is open to the public and begins at 4 PM.

TMZ last week reported that Mike Starr won’t be getting a funeral for another few weeks – the medical examiner put the family’s burial plans on hold in order to perform more tests on Starr’s body. Once his body is back in the family’s possession, sources say they plan to hold two funeral services – one for fans, and one for family.

According to his mother Gayle, the official public gathering/memorial for Mike Starr will be held this Sunday, March 20th at The Fountain (Seattle Center) in Seattle, Washington starting at 4 PM. Details:
