    I know today is Easter, and everything. Buuuut.. Far more importantly, it's the day Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley died. 21 years for Kurt. 13 for Layne...

    Madness.. :crying: image.jpg

    Layne had such a unique haunting voice. I love putting on some AiC with my good headphones. Layne and Maynard are my top singers of all time.

    I applaud them both. It's not my place to say that someone else has a life worth living. I wish more folks had similar courage.

    Not a huge fan of either band, but some songs are great. I always liked Alice in Chains better than Nirvana. Layne Stanley had some real talent.

    Yeah, just an 8 year difference. Crazy! Dimebag Darrell and John Lennon share the same passing date, as well. If I remember correctly.

    If they weren't tortured junkies the music would have never been made. Que the bill hicks "all the music you love was made from people real fucking high on drugs. " from the beginning of Third Eye.

    You'll get no argument from me here. I meant that, more sarcastically. I had my own affair with drugs. That's actually a big reason I like Layne and Kurt so much.

    They should have made made sure their mommies were on the way over with meatballs before attempting suicide.

    If I'm high on weed, music makes a lot more sense to me, especially the trippy stuff like Hendrix, The Doors, Zeppelin etc. There are so many layers or awesomeness in there. I'm sure that listening to that shit on acid is mind-blowing.

    Mushrooms and Tool was quite the experience. So good I had to do it two more times.

    Not to derail the thread, but I was smoking weed today in the sun while listening to this album, and I was re-blown away by how awesome it was. The RHCP were really, really good when they were at their best.
