    Layne's Quote

    "When somebody starts asking me if I'm an addict or how messed up I am or just some stupid stuff like that, it's like'man do you have a brain at all?'Aside from a brain, do you have any feelings at all? What if I started asking these questions? This is really personal stuff...

    Layne Is My Rock

    Layne is my savior.  He let me know that I wasn't all alone like I thought I was. (As cheesy as that sounds!)  And when you're 13 that matters.  He's a legend and always will be. Not only for his voice and writing some painfully deep lyrics but also for his awesome...

    Dream

    I had a dream last night that AIC came out with a new box set of songs they had never revealed to the public before.  Jerry cantrell was collaborating with the ghost of layne to get it all done because Jerry didn't know where the songs were.  Then Layne came to visit me...

    Thanks

    Layne Staley gave me the ability as a young teenager in Australia, the right to be angry and happy and different. His amazing voice echoes in me today. Layne woke me up and gave me the power to question and the need to be loud and be heard.

    Layne!

    You left us way too soon!!! I always wonder if he ever fully realized just how talented he was? Did he care? I do not know about heroin addiction, therefore, i do not understand it. But, it is sad that he let it win, thus depriving us of his voice and his family of the person he...

    Semplicemente.. Grazie Layne

    Rock Music Had A Great Hero

    Alice in Chains was definately a strong group for the early '90s, and although I didn't start listening to them until the late 2000s in my early 20s, I could certainly feel their strength and power chords just like Stone Temple Pilots, one of my other favorite groups. Layne...

    It seems as though we have had a similar life...only in life at this point.  You have stated your fears as clearly as as any man could.  I don't know if it was a combination of your vocals and the band's dark tones or if you and I really do share some sort of...
