  1. My fondest memory of him is when Alice In Chains was booed off the stage during their opening for the Clash of the Titans tour in 1991…which is what happens when you open for Slayer. Layne Staley had some harsh words for the crowd. It’s a tough world, kid.

  2. Legendary. I Am really stoked that Seattle came along with great bands like Alice in Chains, Mad Season, Nirvana, Pearl Jam,Tad, Mudhoney, The Melvins, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone… Layne is definitely missed! Never forgotten…keep it real!
