FINAL ROUND – "Forever Missed Forever Loved" -- Any song RECORDED by KURT COBAIN, LAYNE STALEY, SCOTT WEILAND, CHRIS CORNELL, DOLORES O’RIORDAN and CHESTER BENNINGTONDEADLINE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY, 16 @ 7PM ET(SS TIME).
I am paying tribute to both Layne Staley, and Mike Starr, both of this band. Alice in Chains has been my favorite band for a little over 14 years now, after watching their unplugged video and falling in love with their whole stage presence, harmonies, and simplicity with how they delivered their music unplugged.
Dirt is the second studio album by the American rock band Alice in Chains, released on September 29, 1992, through Columbia Records. Peaking at number six on the Billboard 200, the album was also well received by music critics. It has since been certified four-times platinum by the RIAA and gone on to sell five million copies worldwide, making Dirt the band's highest selling album to date. It is the band's last album recorded with all four original members, as bassist Mike Starr was terminated from the band in January 1993.
The album spawned five singles: "Would?", "Them Bones", "Angry Chair", "Rooster", and "Down in a Hole"; all with accompanying music videos. The songs on the album focused on depression, pain, anger, anti-social behavior, drug addiction (primarily heroin), war, death, and other emotionally charged topics. Rolling Stone listed the album at No. 26 on its list of the 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.
Lead singer Layne Thomas (Rutherford) Staley was born August 22, 1967. He passed away April 5, 2002, aged 34. His body, however, was not found until April 19, 2002, partially decomposed in his home.
Bassist, Michael Christopher Starr was born April 4, 1966. He states in a conversation with Staley's mother, on VH1's Celebrity rehab, that he was the last one to see Staley alive, and they had had a disagreement before leaving the home of Staley, on April 4, 2002. On March 8, 2011, at age 44, of a prescription drug overdose.
Since 2013, fellow band mate, Jerry Cantrell, pays tribute to both Layne Staley, and Mike Starr, before playing their song "Nutshell" <<< click the name of the song to see the unplugged version on Youtube.
