Awoke to This.....

....playing out of the Mac and I just laid there and thought about what this guy put out and where I was in life when he did - Man oh man I wish he was still around as I never disliked any of his stuff - His death was sad to - Another one gone to drugs

"On April 19, 2002, an unidentified person placed a call with 911 to say "She hadn't heard from…[Staley] in about two weeks."[13] Staley was found dead in his home after "his mother and stepfather went to his condo with the police". [14] As reported by Rick Anderson of the Seattle Weekly, his body was surrounded by various drug possessions and paraphernalia: "When police kicked in the door to Layne Staley's University District apartment on April 20, there, on a couch, lit by a flickering TV, next to several spray-paint cans on the floor, not far from a small stash of cocaine, near two crack pipes on the coffee table, reposed the remains of the rock musician." The article also stated that the 6'1" Staley weighed 86 pounds when his body was discovered.[15] The autopsy report later concluded that Staley died after injecting a mixture of heroin and cocaine known as a "speedball".
The King County Coroner's Office estimated Staley to have died on April 5, 2002."

This song still gives me goose bumps to read the above and then hear his lyrics - Not too sure of what to expect from the day when it starts like this???


"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Great group and a truly talented guy. So sad. Can only imagine what great albums could have followed their previous stuff. Always amazes me how such talented people who have everything fall victim to such stupid things, especially hard drugs.......

SEE! - I had a funny feeling when this song was the first thing I heard upon opening my eyes this morning - Fucking FREAKY - I had a feeling it was to be a off kilter and not so normal day
