The former guitarist passed away before playing a charity event in Wisconsin.
Roberts father, Darrell told TMZ that his son had just finished rehearsing & returned to their hotel, where they had adjoining suites. Darrell said that he was awoken by police telling him that his son had died overnight.
He revealed that prescription pills were involved, believing Matt died of a possible accidental overdose.
Roberts exited 3 Doors Down in 2012, citing circulation problems that were made worse by the band’s grueling tour schedule.
My heart goes out to Matt Roberts and family …. 3 Doors Down will always be my family and people I care about. What a tragic loss ….RIP
