Howard Stern Radio Personality Dead At 55




Crazy Cabbie, a frequent guest who was a main fixture of Howard Stern’s show in the late 1990s and early 2000s, has reportedly tragically passed away at the age of 55. Cabbie was a DJ for New York City’s 92.3 K-Rock in addition to being a regular Stern Show guest.

Cabbie’s real name was Lee Siegfried. Some may remember Siegfried for boxing former Stern Show employee ‘Stuttering John’ Melendez. Melendez defeated Cabbie in a highly-anticipated boxing event back in 2006.

Radio DJ Cane Peterson wrote the following message about Cabbie’s death,

Sad update on this Easter Sunday. At 7:09 last night, Lee Siegfried…Crazy Cabbie, peacefully passed way with the love of his life Lexi by his side.

He is no longer in pain, and he is now with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Nobody did radio better than Cabbie, and everyone that knew him, loved him. He had a razor sharp wit, an insatiable lust for life, and most importantly he had a heart of gold. We had our moments, but we were brothers who loved each other very much. Until next time, my friend.

The Mirror reports on his death,

In 2020, it was reported that the radio Siegfried, born Lee Anthony Mroszak, suffered from a rare nerve disorder that can result in paralysis, according to a posting from Starcasm.

Crazy Cabbie broadcast on New York’s 92.3 K-Rock (WXRK radio) and was a regular guest on Howard Stern’s show.

Siegfried got his start at two stations in Minneapolis, where he created the Crazy Cabbie character.

Siegfried entertained millions of people during his radio career. He had previously served time in prison. For years he made people who listened to him laugh, and forget about his problems. For that, we will always be grateful to Crazy Cabbie.

Rest in peace, Lee Siegfried.
