Rootboy Slim died from a cocaine induced heart attack in Florida on 6/8/1993 .


The Root said "a line of coke will make you a new man and that new man wants another line."
On 8 June 1993 Foster MacKenzie III, aka Root Boy Slim, age 48, died in his sleep in his home in Orlando Florida.
The fast lane had finally caught up with him. His ashes were scattered in Scotland.

Rootboy used to invite my brother and a friend of his to local gigs because Phil (my bro and Tom (his buddy) would invariably start fights during the shows and Rootboy loved that. Phil tells me that prior to going on stage he witnessed him taking a massive handful of some unknown pills and shoveling them into his mouth and chasing them with some cocktail. Evidently, they didn't all get in has mouth and bunches of them fell to the floor. But, this didn't seem to bother the Root as he promptly headed to the stage to start his show. I don't doubt everything went down hill from there as Roots buzz caught up with him and Phil and Tom commenced to brawling.

  • Hey Wonderful Person, be Happy Joyous and Free.
    If you are an addict ?
    You Don't need (have) to S M O K E anything , EAT healthy ,
    Don't DRINK any Methadone , Moonshine
    or SWALLOW any PROZAC, Zoloft, Paxil, Effexor, (ANTI-depressant) tablets , SSRI (Selective Serrotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), Luvox (OCD),
    HUFF Anything, Take X
    or use any of the new drugs that are being invented everyday,( Anti-Anxiety Drugs, Anti-Psychotic Drugs, Anti-depressant Drugs, Mood Stabilizing Drugs).
    The PDR keeps getting fatter each year,
    the answer is
    Spiritual not Chemical

    TRY GOD (SPIRIT) instead
    stay clean and find a new way to live ,
    there is hope for any addict.
    You are no different,
    we can survive our emotions clean together and grow. TRY clean first.
    The chances are you are the problem and and total abstinence is the cure. Changes will happen overnight.
    Once you are clean and you still can't face life without drugs, then any psychiatrist can load you up
    with the latest chemical and the viscious cycle will progress to misery,
    degradation, dereliction, jails , institutions and death.
    If you keep doing what you are doing, you'll keep getting what you are getting.

    Help is a call away.(202) 299-4919 .

    The Last time miracle growth occured on any of these pages was around 12.28.2009
    Have a great Day!

    And remember God (SPIRIT) Loves You
