We're not crying, you are.
Alice in Chains have released a video paying tribute to late vocalist Layne Staley, who would have turned 50 years old today (Aug 22, U.S time).
The vid features musicians talking about Staley's incredible voice. Bandmate Jerry Cantrell had this to say:
Layne to me was one of the greatest singers in rock and roll history.
I’ve never heard anything like him before and I will never hear anything like him since … Just to be able to get to be in a band with a guy that does that to you, there’s nobody better to me than him and he’s my friend.
Staley died on April 5th, 2002, losing his life to a heroin addiction.
