    I don't know about anys pics surfacing, but I think he had been dead for quite awhile before his body was found, and it was in advanced stages of decomposition when they found him. Apparently his family got pissed a few years ago because a book about Layne contained graphic details of his death scene (possibly the pics you were speaking of as well), which the family considered to be disrespectful.

    I loved Layne's voice. and thought of him as being one of the more talented of the Seattle sound singers. taking nothing away from Chris Cornell, Kurt or Eddie Vedder (or Mark Arm and Andrew Wood for that matter). I just liked Layne because there was something dark yet beautiful about his voice. and he and Jerry harmonized so well together too. he's missed greatly by us fans. I found it sad that at the end he was alone...so much to the point of being dead for a week before he was discovered. that's very sad. such a shame.

    I read somewhere that when they discovered his body, he looked like something out of the X-Files.

    I'd like to see a pic of that. Sounds interesting. I am a huge Alice fan myself. Peace out Layne.....

    /\ very true. that Angry Chair thing was about some Argentinian woman going thru a bulmia problem who apparently was an AIC fan, and compared herself to Layne. Shit on paper if you ask me.

    If you watch the Unplugged videos, he looks so white and horrible. In other videos like Would? and Down in a Hole he looks huge and tall. He looks so little like he shrunk or something, and hes missing his whole top row of teeth. His eyes look sunken in, and this is in freakin 1996!!! I can't imagine what he looked like in the late 90's, or even prior to his death. He had nothing going for him, especially after losing his model girlfriend to some bacteria death thing, probably dirty needles i dunno. so sad, he had such an incredible voice...

    Does anyone have any pics of him at the Grammys in 98??

    He still had all his teeth for Unplugged he smiled a few times... they were however rotting out... he even had a lisp because of it. But yeah he did look like shit for that.. looked like he hadnt showered in weeks... here is a fun fact about unplugged... Jerry had food poisoning from eating hotdogs and they had to stop taping a few times so he could throw up. thats why if you watch there is a trash can next to jerry on stage.......

    I found this on a website...

    Demri (Laynes girlfriend) passed away from endocarditis. This is a bacterial infection of the heart valves that may be caused by many different factors, including the insertion of IV syringes. It is not contagious

    I never was a HUGE fan, but I had an album or two and dug most of their stuff. Layne was obviously talented. His range and his and Jerry's harmonies were awesome. A band I was in tried to cover a couple of their songs, but I'm not ashamed to admit that my range didn't quite add up to Mr. Staley's.

    Here's the video for Layne's cover of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in The Wall" from the soundtrack to the Elijah Wood's horror flick "The Faculty".

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMcFRj6cADI

    Layne makes a few appearances but I think they might have used old footage of him, since his mouth doesn't sync with the music, and you never see him in the room with the band (a "supergroup" called Class of '99 featuring Layne, Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, and others).

    I'm pretty sure this was the last music video Layne was in, unless they made a video to go along with the Alice in Chains box set that I've forgotten.

    You're correct. At the point that they completed then released the master for the remake for the Pink Floyd cover, Layne was in too rough a shape to be taped, even with some of the not-too-subtle techniques they'd used to cover the ravages of his addiction in other videos (ex. "No excuses"), and all of the shots of him were from stock footage.

    RIP Sweetest spirit, the peace you sought is now yours.

    They did do a video for the song "born again" for the box set, but not a lot of clear shots of Layne.
    Heres that video.

    I do not believe so... He pretty much dropped off the face of the planet... any pictures that were taken before his death were taken by his mother and most likely will not be shared with the world.... I do know that the very last photo taken of Layne was of him holding his sister's new born baby.

    "Dirt" is my favorite album of the 90's. Every song is killer. It reall struck home to me because both my parents were herion addicts. My grandparents took me from them at 2 weeks old. I grew up watching my real mom nod off at parties and I didnt know why. She died about 6 years ago. Herion is the devil. Layne could have been a part of one of the greatest rock bands ever. But it was all taken away by addiction. Depression probably fueled it. I think about him everyday I think of my mom.

    Sorry to hear that. I've been around long-term self-destructors before too, it's sheer hell-on-earth for a family. Oh, man, that must've been rough, both of them ... God bless your grandparents.

    Layne's last real interview was heartbreaking and nakedly honest:

    "I'm not using drugs to get high like many people think. I know I made a big mistake when I started using this shit. It's a very difficult thing to explain. My liver is not functioning, and I'm throwing up all the time and shitting my pants. The pain is more than you can handle. It's the worst pain in the world. Dope sick hurts the entire body."

    Depression had alot to do with it.. once Demri died he gave up everything.
    Layne went to rehab once then she died and he got worse that is when everything started to go down hill.

    Im sorry about your parents and good for your grandparents for taking you...

    From good old Wikipedia:

    On April 19, 2002, an unidentified person placed a call with 911 to say "She hadn't heard from [...] [ Staley] in about two weeks." Staley was found dead in his home after "his mother and stepfather went to his condo with the police". As reported by Rick Anderson of the Seattle Weekly, his body was surrounded by various drug possessions and paraphernalia: "When police kicked in the door to Layne Staley's University District apartment on April 20, there, on a couch, lit by a flickering TV, next to several spray-paint cans on the floor, not far from a small stash of cocaine, near two crack pipes on the coffee table, reposed the remains of the rock musician." He was 34 years old. The autopsy report later concluded that Staley died after injecting a mixture of heroin and cocaine known as a "speedball". By coincidence, the coroner's office estimated that Staley had died on April 5, the same day as fellow Seattle Grunge rocker Kurt Cobain was estimated to have died eight years earlier.

    That's pretty much all I've heard about the guy. Maybe there's more info out there though.

    Layne

    I adore Layne Staley and Alice in Chains. I've got all the books and the rare CDs, etc. What I NEED is a www.findadeath.com story on Layne. That would make me happiest The one on Kurt is quite interesting and AIC was a hugely influential Seattle band, too. There are all sorts of details out there about Layne's death but hardly any pictures! Also, there is no grave to go find because he was cremated. I would love a story iwth some pictures of his house (condo) in Seattle.

    A talent gone far too young. I love Alice In Chains. "Rooster" is one of my favourite songs of all times.

    Is there anyway the man who run the site can make a Layne story? I remember reading a bit more about his condo, how there were brown heroin stains all over the carpets.

    He and Demri were engaged but broke up in 93 or 94. She did in 96, but even before then he was in really rough shape. Apparently he was living off of Ensure because he couldn't digest food, and was 86 pounds, had no teeth and absecesses all over his arms when they found him. I don't know why he had the spray paint.

    I'm glad there aren't any photos of him when he was dead or from his last years circulating, poor Layne wouldn't want his fan to remember him that way.

    He most likely had the spray paint so that he could use it to get high off of the aerosol that causes the paint to spray out of the can. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huffing

    Thats strange, though. If you have heroin and coke and painkillers lying around, why on earth would you huff? Thats what people who cant get their hands on real drugs do.

    He was half dead though - what did he care? Maybe his "doctor" wouldn't bring him his "medicine" anymore b/c he smelled of decay & his place needed to be condemned.

    A new Layne Staley thread is now open for business.

    We've decided to go this way instead of reopening the old one because of the strain it put on the server once it got to 5000 posts. Many of those posts being large images. So every time a member pulls up the thread, all 5000 posts and all of the images are also loaded up on the server.

    Speaking of images and the effect they had on the last Staley thread, if you know you've posted an image before or know that someone else has already posted it, please link to it instead of posting it in this thread again. That way, those who want to see the image can click on the old thread. If you have difficulty finding those, please post any previously posted images as thumbnails, using the upload function. Uploading resizes the image to a manageable size which keeps the thread and the entire forum humming along nicely. We also ask that you do this if you know you've posted something in particular about Staley and you'd like to reiterate it. Thank you in advance.

    Feel free to discuss Layne Staley in this thread, just as you did the old thread. But please, if you want to discuss current events about ex-band members, the current AIC group at length, etc., create a new AIC thread for those posts or the specific person if it merits a thread, in the Entertainment section. Shooting the breeze about your personal lives also belongs on profiles, in pm's and social groups. So if you'd like to have conversations at length about personal topics that come up in the thread, please continue those in appropriate areas of the forum.

    The last thing I'd like to remind everyone of is that this is FAD and the forum's Death Hag Central area was created to discuss all aspects of the famous' lives and deaths, of course. The good, the bad and the ugly, how these people lived and died, dead pics - all of it are encouraged. If an aspect comes up that you're not fond of, please scroll by it instead of getting into a confrontation about what you'd rather not read. Everyone has the right to post their thoughts on any open topic here (within the forum rules, naturally).

    If anyone has any questions about any of the above, please pm me or any mod so the thread stays on track. Thank you.

    So with that, I'd like to say welcome to Layne Staley 2. Enjoy!

    I think the problem with the old thread is that it turned into a chat. Every question has been asked about him, I think every picture ever taken of the guy has already been posted and how many times can one person post how much they love him. There isnt much more to say.

    Yes, almost every question has been asked, and most of those who have had something to say, have said it......There are still more new pics that haven't been seen before showing up so I feel good that we will continue to be lucky enough to have those shared on this thread, at least I hope so.

    The thread, along with people on this forum, have provided a great deal of comfort and the chance to meet others that feel the same. I guess we will have to use our profiles and other means to continue some of the friendships resulting from both.....There are also other forums specifically for Layne that a lot of good people are on as well.....and AIC also has a board for those that love the new line up of the band and the new music...

    I know the movie will be out one of these days, and the book by Tanya, and both will probably generate a lot of discussion not only of how it portrays Layne, but of both authors as well. But what of the new people that don't know all that we've discussed on the old thread, will that thread be able to be referenced should they ask questions that have already been discussed?

    Answered my own question, the old thread is there...

    Boy, I have missed the Layne thread even for just a few days. That said, I wonder why a lot of the old posts are up here at the start? As Long Gone Day already pointed out, it will certainly be tedious for Layne fans who were active on the first thread to have to go through all the missing teeth--amputated arm--paint cans stuff again. For anyone new to this: I think it was established that Layne had paint cans all over his condo because he was working on art projects. Not huffing.

    I agree with Long Gone Day. Alot of stuff has been rehashed over and over but there are new people coming to the thread and they don't know alot of the stuff and don't want to look back through oodles of pages reading (well I did before I got signed up--but I don't have much of a life LOL). I know I find new pics of Layne all the time that i've never seen before and I think given the new release of AIC's new album--there will bring more questions and buzzing about Layne. I do thank the Forum for adding this thread back.

    I agree with you Dakota--I believe the paint cans were used for his art...

    I'd like to know--how do we know what is considered just "chat" ? I mean, if it pertains to Layne (living or deceased) is that okay? I'm sorry I don't mean to sound disrespectful or smarty pants or anything like that--I've never visited a forum as much as I have this one and don't really know. I don't want to mess up and say something that might get the thread closed again.

    DEFINITELY some pics of Demri I've never seen here:

    http://community.livejournal.com/vin...es/138546.html

    and more in the posted links.

    I am glad the Layne thread is back!!!
    I think one of the reasons why the same questions were being rehashed over and over is because we had a lot of new people joining at different times and wanting answers without having to go thru and read the whole thread. It was ginormous!!!

    You can search within a thread, it's basically the same as searching for a thread. Let me know if anyone needs help with that, I can put up a how to.

    Basically when it veers away from Layne, his life, death, and music and is just conversation between members about say, Mike Starr, or Demri, or Duvall, Cantrell, or what have you, like vacation or other bands and whatnot. That's what the social groups or chat rooms are for.

    Also, when members start attacking each other, too. You all are obviously here because your fans, but there will be none of the arguing and 'your opinion' is wrong type stuff. You don't have to agree, just disagree respectfully. The old thread went in that direction many times, and that's not what this thread is for. It's to discuss Layne Staley, not whether someone is wrong because they love/hate William DuVall, for example.

    Any questions, just PM a mod. At least a couple of us are on at all times and we're happy to help. That's what we're here for!

    Jefe, what you said is based on a closed system and I don't think that applies here. The legend of Layne is growing all the time, as more people discover him through the old AIC albums or the new one. And once they do, many recognize, honor and love him for his awesome voice, his words and his beauty, both inner and outer. He is unforgettable!

    I don't think saying that the old thread turned into a chat implies that is was a 'closed system' - chat is for profiles, PMs, and social groups. There's plenty of places to chat. That being said, everyone has an opinion and even those who aren't Staley fans are welcome to post in this thread, too. If someone were to pop in and say, "I hate Layne Staley", there'd be nothing wrong with that. It's a public thread and therefore open to all opinions. If they popped in and said, "I hate everyone who posts in this thread," that WOULD be wrong.

    The previous thread turned into a chat thread or bashing thread many times, and it just won't be tolerated any longer. Simple as that.

    I've never heard of Layne Staley until the original thread. My problem is with the people that join FAD ONLY to post in the Layne Staley thread. Which is fine, but those people go way off topic and have made it a chat thread. This forum has so much more to offer!

    Guys, you're all going way off topic right now, lol. Again, if you have any questions about how the thread is moderated, send us a pm. Otherwise it's time to get back to Staley. Reminder:

    A new Layne Staley thread is now open for business.

    We've decided to go this way instead of reopening the old one because of the strain it put on the server once it got to 5000 posts. Many of those posts being large images. So every time a member pulls up the thread, all 5000 posts and all of the images are also loaded up on the server.

    Speaking of images and the effect they had on the last Staley thread, if you know you've posted an image before or know that someone else has already posted it, please link to it instead of posting it in this thread again. That way, those who want to see the image can click on the old thread. If you have difficulty finding those, please post any previously posted images as thumbnails, using the upload function. Uploading resizes the image to a manageable size which keeps the thread and the entire forum humming along nicely. We also ask that you do this if you know you've posted something in particular about Staley and you'd like to reiterate it. Thank you in advance.

    Feel free to discuss Layne Staley in this thread, just as you did the old thread. But please, if you want to discuss current events about ex-band members, the current AIC group at length, etc., create a new AIC thread for those posts or the specific person if it merits a thread, in the Entertainment section. Shooting the breeze about your personal lives also belongs on profiles, in pm's and social groups. So if you'd like to have conversations at length about personal topics that come up in the thread, please continue those in appropriate areas of the forum.

    The last thing I'd like to remind everyone of is that this is FAD and the forum's Death Hag Central area was created to discuss all aspects of the famous' lives and deaths, of course. The good, the bad and the ugly, how these people lived and died, dead pics - all of it are encouraged. If an aspect comes up that you're not fond of, please scroll by it instead of getting into a confrontation about what you'd rather not read. Everyone has the right to post their thoughts on any open topic here (within the forum rules, naturally).

    If anyone has any questions about any of the above, please pm me or any mod so the thread stays on track. Thank you.

    So with that, I'd like to say welcome to Layne Staley 2. Enjoy!
    .

    Life goes on.
