I Love Layne Staley

    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...

    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'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

    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...
