    Drank heavy at dinner before heart attack. Four shots of rum, two Pina Coladas and two beers. Said he been to several AA meetings in West Village in New York. Said at dinner he had 2 orders of fried prawns in a mayonnaise chili sauce and a heaping portion of Foie Gras. Another source and who knows if this is Bullshit said he had been known to blow lines of cocaine and drink like an Irish sailor. Photos showed he looked haggard in the days before his death. Probably still wouldn't have made much difference. When it's your time, it's your time.

    A family friend? eh
    Toxicology reports take weeks to come back.

    The Post isn't reliable either. I think it's possible he had a fatty dinner and a few shots of pineapple rum, but that's hardly devasting......ONCE in awhile. Clearly he ate bad for years and it eventually killed him.

    There's a retired DJ from Boston that I talk to from time to time, Charles Laquidara. He posted a FB RIP to Gandolfini. Enough time passes for him to have spoken to a few people and he posts, using his alter ego voice of Duane Ingles Glasscock saying he sure hoped it wasn't coke that killed him. If you know the guy, it was his way of saying that's the rumor going around. It wasn't more than an hour after he had died too.
