Layne Staley

Born: 1967-08-22 - Died: 2002-04-05
Cause of Death:
Drug Overdose


Death Summary: At the age of 34, Staley's body was discovered at his condo surrounded by crack pipes, spray paint cans, cocaine, and misc. drug paraphernalia. They estimated that he had died 15 days earlier. In what must have been a hideous discovery, Stayel's body weighed only 86 pounds. His autopsy results concluded that a "speedball" - a mixture of heroin and cocaine is what killed him in the end.

His estimated death date - April 5th marked the 8 year anniversary of fellow "grunge" band frontman Kurt Cobain. Unfortunately, the media did not make nearly the fuss about Staley's demise.

Who was Layne Staley : Layne Thomas Staley was the lead vocalist and co-founder of the 90's "grunge" rock band Alice in Chains, as well as side project Mad Season.

He battled drug addiction (heroin in particular) for years until it ultimately claimed his life.

Staley's drug abuse eventually became publicized and the rumors inevitablly began to fly. A popular one was that he had contracted gangrene from using dirty needles and had to have his arm amputated. Though he was not in the public eye much during the end, sources close to him have denied any such rumors.

The music of Alice in Chains still gets moderately heavy radio airplay to this day.

When I lose the battle, and I’m sure I will in one way or another, Don’t follow will be played at my funeral. I’m sure Layne said as I say now, If I could only go back. RIP Layne, see ya’ soon…

  57. Nigel Graham Says:

I love you Layne. Your music touched me in so many ways. Im sorry it took me so long to research your passing. The pain was just to much to relive it. I leave with a quote from another soul gone to early.. (WE LIVE WE DIE AND DEATH NOT ENDS IT, JOURNEY WE MORE INTO THE NIGHTMARE. JAMES DOUGLAS MORRISON.

  66. Michelle Says:

    One of the best singers, he compares to nobody. He’s a legend and there will never be anybody as gifted as him. I hope that he has finally found peace. RIP you are missed, see you in heaven

  67. Shelby Says:

    from the first time i seen Alice in Chains on my tv in their MTV recording, i immediately knew there was something about this pink haired man. Then he started to sing, nutshell (which is my favorite). Tho no songs that have Layne’s voice can steer me wrong. I fell in love with him and the band mates dark music. I sat in silence with my boyfriend who loved them for years before he sat me down and threw on the DVD. A night i will never forget. Each song was breathtaking to have someone feel all this pain and taking mine away is something magical. I thank Layne Jerry Mike/Mike and Sean for helping me through a hard time and more to come in my life. AIC is the only music i can turn to and be OK. As i was saying my soul was in silence hearing this beautiful man sing his heart out. And at the end of Unplugged my boyfriend of course had to tell me he was no longer with us, my heart sunk so far down and im still hurt Layne is gone. But so very thankfull for the music that is left behind. Layne Staley you are with me everywhere man and so forth to the future generations, such as my 5 year old boy he loves you. RIP

  68. James Says:

    miss you bud.

  69. Sam Lavender Says:

    Rest in Peace Layne. I’ll never forget you.

  70. Terri Martinez Says:

    Beautiful Angry Angel, I hope you found the peace in death that you couldn’t find in life.

    Your are greatly missed

  71. James E. Says:

    Listen to your music everyday of my life. Sad you are not with us anymore. Lost is one of the most influential voices of the modern rock era. Although I was not fortunate to attend a live AIC concert with Layne at the helm, I’m glad to have been along for the ride through the surviving CDs and DVDs documenting their concerts. Best band and singer ever!!!! I will continue to ponder on what could have been and remain selfishly angry that he is around no longer to make awesome music. RIP Layne!!!

  72. Jeff McClintock Says:

    I often thought that the 80′s brought about the best decade of music ever. I’m a huge fan of 80′s hair metal bands, but as the grunge bands started to emerge, AIC was by far my favorite of all of them. To this day they r one of my all time favorites. As many have stated before me, I belive u can hear Layne’s pain and tourment come out in all thier songs through his unmistakeable/awesome voice. Their songs r so deep,complex and carry alot of meaining. There is a cruel irony to life sometimes. When some people achieve success,fame and fortunate, that their ability to attain/buy some things (drugs), more easily than most of us, it can lead to their own demise. As such that his voice often communicated pain and suffering, his life also followed that same haunted path. I often think what it would be like to be a young wealthy rock star, the world at your feet, so many things one could do. That type of life style sounds so alluring, but then u think of all the negative things that can accompany it and then u realize, it comes at a great price. It is always a shame for the world to lose so many young gifted musicians to early, one can only think of what all the great music that will never be created by them. I think of Steve Clark of Def Leppard whom couldn’t cope with being out of the spot light, which ultimately lead to his demise. RIP Layne At least we still can enjoy the awesome music you left us with, before u left.

  73. AnonymousGirl Says:

    This is truly sad

  74. Maria Says:

    When I listen to Layne’s voice I feel his pain, his struggle. A struggle which is so much like my own. What a beautiful man. Gone too soon. RIP

  75. Anonymous Says:

    Layne has made an impact on me that no other musician has ever been able to do. The moment I saw him open his mouth and heard that beautiful voice that was painful, but at the same time soothing, I felt an instant connection to him. I have thought about him each day since, and I would have given nearly anything to take away some of his hurt, the way that his music has lifted much of mine. I can not believe that he gave up on life, and I often wonder why someone didn’t try harder to stop it. Given the oppurtunity, I would have done something myself. I know that Layne shut everyone out and isolated himself to the point that it was not unusual for days or weeks to go by without hearing from him, and that no one else is to blame for that much, but it is still very unfortunate that he died alone. He knew he was dying and no one prevented it, himself included. Layne, I will never forget you and I hope that once I leave this world I might finally have the oppurtunity to thank you for everything you have done to help me, and the rest of your fans, make it through our struggles. Just wish someone had done the same for you.

    R.I.P LAYNE,,ur music will never die!

  79. Taylor Roberts Says:

    You look at one of the last live performances in ’96 and feel the pain in Laynes voice. A vocal artist like himself lives in the hearts of everyone, painting pictures which are merely indescribeable. Hes a god and a genius but most importantly, an angel that walks among us.

  80. Chris Says:

    Hope to be with you soone

  81. nadine Says:

    i am doing a boigraphy project on him. i also picked him because he is like a god and the best ever. i wish he was still here today and meet him on the other side of the bridge.

  82. August Says:

    You helped me see inside myself I enjoy god am and hate to feel I’m only a kid but I understand what its like to feel others misery and hatred

  83. IMissLayne Says:

    It makes me so happy to read all the comments by everyone. I normally don’t see a lot of them on websites about Layne.

    Layne, not a day goes by that I don’t think about you and wish that I could of met you while you were still alive. You had so much talent that never truly got the recognition it deserved. You told your life and predicted your death through your lyrics. If it weren’t for you, I would have never made it through my teenage years. Your voice and words have gotten me through the darkest times. Sometimes I feel like your the only person in the world who ever understood how I feel when I’m sad. I wish you knew how much you were loved and knew how much you would be missed. It breaks my heart to imagine what your last day was like on this earth and to know that for so many years you felt alone. Yes, life does go on, but it doesn’t take away the pain, or the memories and you never forget. There will never be another Layne.

  84. dennis Says:

    Layne was and always be my favorite singer/songwriter, his voice was uncomparable to anyone’s. No matter what band he was in, he rocked! Rest in peace brother, can’t wait to meet you in heaven and hear your amazing voice once again!

  85. Dowansa Says:

    As the years go by I often wonder what would have become of Layne…and how terrible his life must have been at the end…it boggles the mind to ponder how a man with so many family members, friends and fans could have been SO alone…it’s not right that he died alone…what a sad, sad end…thank you for letting us in through your music Layne…you were the last of your kind…and I choose not to remember the way that you died…but rather the way you lived…

Although when I was five and i did not know you or know that you died i will always remember my dad playing Alice in Chains in the car. It was only 2 years ago that i discoved your amazing god like singing talents and your achivments with that talent have changed my life forever. Layne Staley is my most favorite singer of all time, and alice in chains is my most favorite band of all time. Although i just discovered that you died 2 years ago I will remember you as one of the most important people in my life even though i have never met you.

    Layne Thomas Staley, as I listen to songs like “Nutshell”, “Am I Inside”, and “River Of Deceit”, I feel as if you were talking to me. When I write music and songs, I see your inspiration coming out, and you are an awesome dude…I’m thankful to have had ran across the band Alice In Chains during my life, because your inspiration lives on…I will lovingly carry that inspiration, and you my dear friend, brother…Will always be remembered greatly not for what you were, but who you were…Rest in Peace bro.
