Today, as other Alice in Chains fans may know, is the tenth anniversary of Layne Staley's death. I would like to mention the great things he did in his life, and how it is possible to still appreciate him even if you weren't a fan of his music. I still find his death very sad and would like to make a thread in his memory,

Also, it is worth mentioning that Jim Marshall died. May he rest in peace as well.

He's one of my most favorite vocalist ever. Wish i could sing like him. RIP

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'm scarred for life

The men are dead, and show some respect, whether you like their music or not.

No.


Layne had a cool voice though.
#13
Some memories:

Layne Staley on the choruses of Man in the Box, live at the Moore theater, December 22, 1990.

Then, Layne Staley's last performance on the last chorus on Man in the Box, Kansas City, July 3, 1996. It was the last song of his last show, and he NAILED the last bit of it.

Probably my favorite rock singer and one of my favorite frontmen.

Great singer. Better in the studio than live, though.
R.I.P Jon Lord, Rory Gallagher and Jimi!

He may have ruined his voice a bit in time, but he certainly hit his notes live from what I've seen...even at his worst his singing seemed to get if anything more distinctive
#21
Definitely one of my favourite singers ever, and my favourite of the 90's, along with Jeff Buckley.

R.I.P.

There's a place in Seattle I park to go to the Seahawks or Mariners, and it says "Layne Lives", just spray painted in on a random building. Makes me smile when I walk past it.
#24
I think his voice was better live. Either way it is great.

I need to travel to Seattle just to see that^. Where is it? I'll write it down.
#25
Layne had such a great voice, new guy does a good job of sounding like him, but he doesn't quite catch those little nuances Layne does live. AiC playing now till I fall asleep.

Except that one taping of Under the Bridge on the tonight show. Have you seen that? Frusciante can barely play the song. Sounds wicked, but could have been better if he wasn't high.

Definitely one of my favourite singers and songwriters.
Seemed like a great guy to hang around with too.

Layne was a great singer. Would have loved to see what else he could have done if he hadn't died.

Calm down.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

I don't know about that. He may have started to lose it in their later years due to the drugs but I've seen videos of their earlier stuff and he nails it.

RIP Layne, one of my favorite singers ever

But is that really a good thing? He met Layne which is great, but then again...

Quote by Gorelord666

Sorry, I just didn't like how he came to this thread about respecting someone who passed away, and made a smart-ass comment. I can't understand how people can act that way.

It's a great thing. He got to meet a great man doing something that brought lots of mutual enjoyment. Only way it could've gotten better is if Layne gave him a rimjob.

We're on about his vocals. Don't agree? We all seem to, so it is just you which is your loss. Show us vocals that are just as stunning and powerful and then your opinion will become valid.

Layne would never give anybody a rimjob, that's gross and he had principles.
