I used heroin, crack and pain killers for about 15 years. I lost most of my friend's and ended up in prison 3 times for most of my twenties and thirties. I've been sober nearly a decade and I have two daughters now. having them and meeting my GF have turned me into a different person completely. it's easy to let depression take control of your life and using hard drugs takes away the empty feelings for a little bit but it always comes back worse and some people are too far gone to save without an extreme life changing event. mine was being charged as a habitual felon yt Staley wasn't that lucky. I still feel a deep connection to his music and I can somewhat feel his pain. when Stanley sings you can really feel it.

I've always had a problem with the scenario of Staley's death and here's why. You have a band mate and supposed best friend that YOU KNOW is deep into a heroin addiction and a EX-MANAGER is the one who notices Staley hasn't withdrawn any $ out of his account for two weeks, it's hard for me to believe these guys and Staley's family weren't as tight as we were told. There isn't something right about the whole thing.

Such a sad, tragic end to a Godsend of a man..a voice so powerful it moves you. I feel your pain,Layne..am struggling with it myself. Maybe I'll see you soon.xX
Nellie Silvers (25 days ago)
bobby bobberson That's the first I've ever heard of Suboxone helping ease depression. That's awesome. I've thought of swapping over but the thought of no methadone and withdrawing before using Suboxone makes me cringe. I'm definitely not hard wired and go into withdrawal really easily..to the point I want to curl up and die😕. I'm glad to hear it helps more ways than obw though. It really gives me something to think about when I'm strong enough. Thank you,bub. I hope you had an awesome Xmas and your New Year's is safe and fulfilling.xXxX❤️❤️
bobby bobberson (28 days ago)
+Nellie Silvers Well thanks, but we don't beat this disease unless we die of natural causes unrelated to addiction; lol. Unfortunately, relapse is a common component to recovery. At least with Methadone and Suboxone, the relapses are overcome easier and with more brevity. Sorry to hear about the depression. I've suffered with that myself and have found the suboxone to be helpful in that department as well. Actually, I've read research articles about suboxone being investigated for use in intractable depression. Might be worth your while to read into it if by chance you have access to it? Anyways, Merry Christmas. Hope you are well.
Nellie Silvers (1 month ago)
bobby bobberson So awesome you beat it,bub. I've been on methadone for about 18 yrs but no matter how hard I try, I give in to H. I go into deep depression without it...weak,I know. One day at a time,I guess. I may not know you but as a fellow sufferer, I'm proud of you.xX❤️
bobby bobberson (1 month ago)
+Nellie Silvers You're welcome, I've been to hell and back too many times to count with the same issues. Opiate addiction will shatter your hopes and dreams and blacken your soul. I'm lucky to live in a progressive country and have access to free suboxone which has been a godsend. Much more effective than a month of inpatient rehab and useless 12 step programs, and much less hassle than methadone. Cheers! Don't ever give up. The sun will shine again as long as you can persevere.

They have a few things wrong or missing. Layne was found dead with th crack pipes and crack, that was true. But, also he was found with a couple syringes, and a full syringe in his hand. There was also, some strange things found, one thing being razor blades...around 100 all over the apartment, on the tables, the floor, the bathroom and one very odd razor taped behind a picture. When AIC started to make it big, his dad showed up and made amends with Layne. At that time Layne had gotten himself cleaned up and was doing great. Then, what was said, is that his dad's drug use made Layne get back into it. After a while, his dad got himself cleaned up and never did heroin again but, Layne couldn't and he resented his dad for that. There's a lot to Layne's story that I know but, I'll just leave it at that and respect his memory of possibly the greatest singer ever.

Yes.. being dope sick hurts...but losing a hero hurts too. R.I.P LTS.
Wanda Burgess (4 months ago)
I'm tired of listening to Jerry, say he was my best friend in the *WORLD* well clearly his best friend was dead 2 weeks before anyone or Jerry found him.. Layne's account called his mother about no money being withdrawn from his account in 2 weeks.. So clearly the account was worried about him, before *ANYONE*
Lisa Siddle (3 months ago)
People tried to contact him - he didn't want anybody's help. He committed suicide - very slowly and very painfully over a long period of time. You can't save a person who doesn't want to be saved - sad but true. The band missed touring opportunities due to Layne's addiction and deteriorating health. They also paid a hefty price. The other members cared for him deeply, but had to stand by and watch the sad demise of their friend.

It's such a shame. He thought nothing of his talent and contribution to art and how many people he inspired through his lyrics and voice. He completely ignored his value and worth. He had friends, he had fans/supporters, he had family. Yet he felt that he just didn't matter. Oh, the lies the mind tricks some people into believing. And when Demri died, the only person he felt understood him completely, that was it for him. I remember being a teen in the 90's, desperately hoping he could get clean enough to tour. I wanted to see them live so badly. He was wanted. He was loved. He loved others deeply. But for some reason, he just couldn't love himself.

So sad. I've been using heroin since 2010 and finally kicked for good with methadone maintenance. Goin cold turkey is just debilitating and makes dying seem like a relief. I hope he is finally at peace with no sickness. Very sad..

I've watched this probably 20 times this past week and shared in both AIC and Clutch fb groups. Thank you for putting it together for the world to see. Layne is the greatest vocalist of all time. I never did heroin but, alcohol has been my demon. your body goes into autopilot with addiction and you lose your free agency and ability to decide. "it's a hard thing to explain"
bannis27 (1 year ago)
Thanks for the kind words Larry, and i hope you don't succumb to your addiction

Diamond lie Did not include Sean and Layne.... I dont know about mike but when they decided to name alice in chains ..... Alice in chains it was Laynes band spelt differently called Alice n Chainz or something close to that. My point is Alice in chains And diamond lie had really nothing to do together.... i know this cause i watched an interview with Sean and Jerry they explain it... so im not a no it all

Neal Damkjer (1 year ago)
Hey man, huge fan and still pissed at Layne. Alot of you ain't gonna like this, but he had millions!!! Get anti-depressants, suboxone, and kick. What a waste...the most talented singer and one of my top fav bands of all time. Selfish and stubborn at the end. You have to WANT TO STOP! He could have, but chose to not. With subs he would have had no withdrawals and been tapered off and still singing to us today. Pull up your bootstraps, pick up your spirits, and march on. I am sure he was a great guy, very kind and giving. BTW the bitch Demri got him shooting up, so fuck her. I'm glad she's dead but yet if she was alive maybe Layne would be, too! I love you you selfish prick.
Niomi Elston (1 year ago)
Neal Damkjer U got 2 keep in mind; I'm sure his junkie "friends" came around 2 keep him on the dope-so as 2 mooch off of his $. When u have access 2 millions of $ and u got dope in your face, ur will power is bound 2 fail!! Not 2 mention the xtreme depression and guilt! HE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTD. I read somewhr that he was extremely generous and caring. He invited a homeless man 2 come and eat some food, at his own house. He gave away backstage passes 2 the young ppl who couldn't afford tickets, instead of his friends. i can only imagine how ppl manipulated and used him 2 help supply their habits?
AaronD711 (1 year ago)
I think we all get that but he had a broken heart from the loss of his long time girlfriend. I really believe that is what made him not even bother with trying to get clean. Really a sad way to go..........
Neal Damkjer (1 year ago)
Thank you. He deserved much much more.
Neal Damkjer (1 year ago)
Whatever dude. I mean no harm, it's an opinion.
Neal Damkjer (1 year ago)
Hey , I respect you and where you are coming from. I have been there myself, no lie. Depressed and bi-polar, while hooked on opiates very bad. I just wish the will and strength I got from my family and friends to you to help in your struggles. No one should ever let depression or drugs or both take your life from you, or take it away completely. I wish you well. Methadone is sooo much harder to come off of, and still fucks you up. Suboxone never got me high, and saved my life. Please try it. Love, NMD
Christy Found (1 year ago)
This is a great tribute! However those things that he was quoted saying about his liver not functioning and he knew he was near death, the puking and shitting himself are fake. Adriana Rubio is her name, she made it all up and took his dignity (book titled Layne Staley Angry Chair) Layne never granted her request for interview and made sure his family didn't either. Someone educated me because she explained liver failure perfectly, I bought the stupid book!  Buyer beware! Totally not your fault, like I said I'm in school for nursing and I fell for it... shame on me! still a beautiful tribute hate to be a downer but you should know.
AaronD711 (1 year ago)
If you read another AIC book, Alice In Chains the untold story,it tells all about the book to which Christy mentions as a fraud.........
Niomi Elston (1 year ago)
Christy Found How do u know that she faked this AND wrote a book about it?? Seems like Layne's family has a pretty decent lawsuit 2 win!!?? Just my opinion tho!!

Beautiful tribute! I have tears in my eyes when you wrote "he died alone"...He was such a talented, kind person who prefered to give te VIP tickets to fans who didn't have the money to buy tickets, he was a beautiful person with a beautiful mind who helped others and who died all alone!

A man that can pull my heart right out of my chest. I know addiction, sadly. I miss him and Kurt. Beautiful, angry, angels. I fight on 4 all of us. RIP
Heart breaking and I can testify to what he said you really dont want to be an addict; I have been through late stage cancer, the chemo, radiation, surgery and addiction...I would choose cancer anyday vs addiction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

REE H. (1 year ago)
I ADORE this song but it's such a tragedy with their band members battling addiction and then death. RIH. My uncle (50 something) is in Hospice dying from alcoholism. "Hurts too bad to stop". Don't believe I'm an addict but my body goes thru w/d without my pain meds. Though they're prescribed i gt ALL flu-like symptoms plus a racing heart, dilated pupils, & taste sensitivity if my pharmacy drags ass on refills. HORRIBLE feeling! My meds don't gt me high either. Everyone keep up your fight. #addictionsucks #f.cancer

pinkcloudturnstogrey (5 years ago)
my heart sank when i read "he died alone". as loved as he was and still is, he of all people shouldn't have died alone! that just kills me. he had that "bad ass" thing going on, but he also was incredibly intuitive and sensitive. and of course that sense of humor. that is how i want to remember this awesome artist who's voice still can get me going in the mornings and soothe me to sleep at night. i've fallen asleep to "wake up" on repeat mode too many times to count. RIP sweet Layne...

MsJilsephonie still.. True love will never just 'Brush Away'! Nothing dies* He is with his girl now_ I love the song 'died'.. It was tied, to emotion (energy-in-motion) which stirred within him over the loss of his girlfriend in this 3rd dimensional reality. He's probably experiencing the 5th or 'above' now & with her! Live on Layne Staley*!*
