Stars including Tracii Guns and Wednesday 13 have paid tribute to Drew Bernstein, founder of a leading fashion company, who was found dead on Monday (18Aug14), aged 51.
Bernstein, founder and chief executive of the Lip Service clothing company, was discovered on a remote hiking trail in Los Angeles. County police department officials say he died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

L.A. Guns frontman Tracii Guns writes, "Rip Drew Bernstein... this is so devastating I can't even think of how to put it in words right now. Thank you." and Murderdolls leader Wednesday 13 adds, "Wednesday 13, band & mgmt (management) would like to pay our respects to Drew Bernstein, the Ceo of @LipServiceCult. Thank you for everything! R.I.P."
Hollywood actress Arquette simply writes, "Rip #DrewBernstein".
