Yes, Heroin has taken the life of my idol, Layne Staley.

Stay cool!-Levi7.

Opiates.
Refined opiates.

Too warm and fuzzy. Heroin is a hint from the Gods.... anything that feels that close to what death feels like - should be avoided.

Nature will take care of us,
if we just stop refining (fucking with) her...

Good for you, Urbanator! Man, I know exactly how it feels to avoid that stuff.
After this, I despise the brown! I mean it killed my idol. He was the coolest guy on earth and still hasn't been seen by many in years.
The local ROCK station up here, KISW 99.9 FM did this thing on April 1st. They told the audience that Layne would be replacing Chris Cornell on the Rage Against the Machine gig with Ozzfest. They said the new name was Alice Enraged! You know how bad I wanted it this to be true? I figured it out at about 7pm that day and decided to turn the radio back on. Well, after that last caller made a fool of himself, the DJ says, "April Fools'! You guys are a bunch of idiots for believing that! Ha Ha!". You know, that pissed me off. Well, I woke up at about 5:15 this morning to some fat bitch on the news saying, "......of an apparent drug overdose..." and thought to myself, "People die everyday in Seattle of drug overdoses and it never makes the news?!". Then, I heard, "Staley was 34.....". I lost it. I really lost it.
Strange how people could care so much about rock stars?
Stay cool!-Levi7.

I'm socked :frown: ! It's first hand news from you Levi.... i used to sing AIC, STP and other grunge/metal bands covers when i had a band long time ago, AIC was always my favorite... oh man!!!

I think this song is adequate to Layne,

Down In A Hole,  from Dirt
Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In a tomb...in bloom
Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, losin' control
I'd like to fly,
But my wings have been so denied
Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will speak no more
of my feelings beneath
Oh I want to be inside of you
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, feelin' so small
Down in a hole, losin' my soul
Down in a hole, out of control
I'd like to fly but my
Wings have been so denied

Peace,
MAIA

I'm not trying by any means to insult you or your "idol," but touching heroin is perhaps the most profoundly-stupid drug anyone could do, IMO. I was somewhat a fan of AIC, and I am dissappointed to hear the news. Even more dissappointed that he couldn't overcome his own stupidity after who know how many years.

In my mind, he's been dead for quite a while.

Damn, that really sucks. this last month or so i have been on an AIC kick. I like to play the unplugged Cd when i go to sleep. It is such a great loss. It's drugs like heroin that make the "other drugs" look bad......

The worst part about it is that the inkling of hope that AIC would get back on the groove is gone forever.

HI,
You guys are really good friends in times like this and some of you I'm not even familiar with.
Yeah, the realization that Alice in Chains cannot get back together is one of the hardest things to deal with and understand.
When you look up to someone so much and all of the sudden that person is gone, the thoughts of that person being vulnerable to death is really horrifying. I've got so many thoughts running in my head, like the news saying that a body was found and that it was thought to have belonged to Layne Staley is really disturbing. I know that we've all given thought to the science and spirituality of life and death, but this is getting to me. Layne is no longer in that body. That body "belonged" to Layne.
I have had fantasies of making it big in rock n' roll. I haven't been in a band for almost 10 years, but still have fantasies of getting there. I'll tell you that one of my biggest of all was being in the "in crowd" among the stars just so that I could feel normal and be able to meet Layne as a star, not just a fan.
Now, I'm regretting having not pursued meeting him as a fan.
You know, I had no clue that he could've been located and it was so shocking to see the news reporter standing in front of an apartment complex where Layne died. Only in the news of his death, did I realize that my idol was a person and he "lived" a human life in a "normal" apartment in the "Real Seattle" that any of us visit or live in.
I gotta stop here, cause this post has been about me and I am not the focus here. Layne is the focus.
I know that many of us loved that man and looked up to him.
Some people might be negative about the situation and throw out thoughts of him being irresposible and that anyone that uses heroin deserves what has happened. This hurts me when I read it. For any of you that have used heroin, you know that the drug does not feel like it is going to take your life away from you. Heroin makes a person feel like they have more life than they ever realized before. And after a person has allowed heroin to become their morning coffe or afternoon drink, they've already accepted the fact that it is now part of their lives. Every single user reads and heres about horror stories and every single user thinks that it will not happen to them. Also, this thing that makes a person feel so good about themselves will not allow a person to feel any amount of good with out it. The weight of not having heroin far exceeds the weight of having it. For instance, let's say the high from a good dose had a high of about a 9.5. Well, the feeling of not having it, come time, will have a low of about about a -49.5. It's just not worth not having it and the sad part is that it eventually will kill the user. Even if the user is as great a person as Layne Staley, it will eventually kill the user.
I'm not a professional on this stuff, but just wanted to explain the basics of the drug. Some of you are ignorant and just want to blurt out whatever you've read or whatever you've heard just to make yourselves known and let us know that you've got an opinion, whether it's yours truly or not.
As for the fans, thanks for replying and mourning our great loss.
We, the fans, should get out all of our Layne Staley music and listen to it with open ears. Let's listen and understand Layne and what he went through. The guy's had some tough times and deserves our paying attention in this time of loss.
You guys are great!
Stay cool!-Levi7.

Sorry you feel that way, Rungi.
You are entitled to feel that way, though.

lol, if Layne Staley is your idol you need to get out more.

Sure i Was an AIC fan back in the day, prob right up till the first time i saw my first "real" show", and realized the joy of funk.(although i like all types of music that don't suck)

Anyway, i listened to dirt a few weeks ago on a long car ride, me and my GF couldn't stop laughing about how silly all the songs where. first off, they are ALL about heroin. Second the lyrics are jsut stupid, cheesy rymes, and the way he grimes up his voice to sound intense. it sounds totally ridiculous! Lets face it, the band is a joke, and could only appeal to axisty type (hey it worked on me for a while)

so i'm not saying that you guys are stupid,....just that you must live a very sheltered lives. there is real music all around, you just gotta know wher to look
get out, go to a show, www.jambase.com is full of them.....life goes on

PEACE :-)
