Joey Boots, on 'Howard Stern Show' dies at 49, but NOT Moi So many possibilities, Where does Moi start? http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2016/12/24/joey-boots-bassolino-from-howard-stern-show-dies-at-49/95829684/ Certainly diet is the biggie. Lots of Vitamin D certainly would have helped. People like Joey Boots were all around pathetic, when it comes to health issues. The television show, Dead Like Me is total bull.
