3rd anniversary of the death of Lane Staley
    #4078502 - 04/20/05 08:52 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I just thought id bring this up because 420 always reminds me of his death. That was about the time i registered here (after years of lurking) to comment on how much he and Cantrell impacted my life.

I dedicate this thread to him.

Well, his body was found on 420.  He actually died weeks earlier but no one knew about it because he lived a life of solitude and hopeless addiction since his fiance died in his arms around the time Dirt was made.  They found his decomposing body sitting in a chair in his apartment at the age of 34...they couldnt even conclude that it was a drug OD, he just gave up living.

It was a hard pill to swallow, knowing that he and Jerry dedicated their art to turning the sickness of depression into something beautiful.  It was almost like the loss of a heroic warrior fighting on your side to the enemy in an unnecessary battle.  I still feel the bitterness and resentment towards fate and that which i cannot control.  The feeling is amplified by the fact that Lane constantly fought against fate for nothing other than his pure love of music and all that it is capable of.  He will continue to be an inspiration to me and musicians around the world in battling mediocrity and that which aims to acclimate us to the sick existance of depression.

Sorry if im getting a little deep but their infulence on me growing up has been positively profound and I attribute my success in life to him.  Now lets all smoke a dank bowl and rejoice in life.  :rasta:

Great post.  :thumbup: Layne was a great man, his death, and what lead to it still causes me great sadness, I hope he has found peace and happiness at last.  :sad: :heart:
