Layne Staley
[ Layne Rutherford Staley ]
(August 22, 1967 April 5, 2002)

American musician known for being the lead vocalist, occasional rhythm guitarist
and co-songwriter of the rock band "Alice in Chains". The band rose to international
fame in the early 1990s during Seattle's grunge movement, and became known for Staley's
distinct vocal style, as well as the harmonized vocals between him and guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell.

Staley was also a member of the supergroups Mad Season and Class of '99.

By mid-1996, Staley was out of the public spotlight, never to perform live again.
Staley struggled for much of his adult life with depression and a drug addiction, which resulted in his death on April 5, 2002.
