They changed the face of rock....

  • Print

...Layne Staley....Kurt Cobain.........both passed on this day..years apart...but on the same date...April 5th........being a huge fan of both Alice in Chains and Nirvana, it saddened me then and it saddens me now....I can distinctively recall when Nirvana broke onto the scene and let the world know that life isn't a grand ol party for everyone.....and gave the silent masses a voice.........a loud booming voice that could not be ignored.......whether it was his intention or not Kurt Cobain became the face of a generation who yearned.....demanded to be heard.....Layne Staley basically invented a sound with Alice in Chains....from the first time I heard his voice (I believe it was Grind) I instanly knew there was something incredible going on.....his one of a kind sound is beuond unforgettable...Alice in Chains immediately became a band I would listen to at any time....I can recall many times losing myself in their music at 3am....or at 9pm....or at 12 noon....etc.....they simply spoke to me if that makes any sence.......Rest in peace Layne and Kurt........this world misses you.           Rick
