“‘Died of a heroin overdose. Junkie.’ That’s the only thing anybody ever fuckin’ wrote, and to see that start to fade and people realize what the guy contributed and the amazing talent that he was- and nobody’s ever gonna know personally what a fuckin’ guy he was. We do, and he was so fuckin’ cool and badass. It’s cool he’s taken an Obi-Wan kind of thing. He’s more powerful in death, and he’s gained a lot more reverence.” - Jerry Cantrell (Everybody Loves Our Town” An Oral History of “Grunge”)
Layne was pretty mellow outside of the rock thing. Of course, Kurt Danielson and I did most of the talking when we were hanging out with him. He’d just sit and laugh, make comments every now and then. They’re all really funny guys - they had futures in being comedians if the rock thing didn’t turn out too well. We were in a van, and they were on a touring bus. They always had us riding with them - playing video games and listening to music.
Sorry it has been ages since I’ve posted on here. My life has gotten hectic over the last two years, and I am just now getting back to where I have time to maintain this blog again.
I just wanted to thank everyone for continuing to follow. Also, if you have favorite pictures of Layne please drop them in the submission box. I made this blog out of love and want everyone that follows to be a part of it!
