    That's sad news, man. I liked his bassline in Would (simple but haunting) and some of his stuff on the second half of Facelift starting from Love Hate Love especially. I realize I'm a day late but I'll have to rock out in my apartment tonight, as a personal tribute.
    I think the bassist that replaced Starr for Jar of Flies and the self titled (tripod) album was Mike Inez, and he's good too. I just looked it up, Inez is currently with AIC still.

    No, not really because there is no real connection between me and some random junkie. I mean, I grieve for anyone caught up in addiction like that, but I wouldn't create a thread like this one unless you're family, a friend or famous and I like what you've contributed in your respective art.

    Wait, what's your point?

    The story of the band is sad in general. Mike Starr always felt deep guilt for the death of lead singer and close friend Layne Staley, when he died back in 2002. Starr was the last person that saw Layne before he died. He was holed up in his condo (which is only a few miles down the road from me) for months, abusing heroin and literally withering away to nothing. Starr wanted to call for help, but Staley threatened that he'd never speak to him again if he did. Starr knew Layne was in trouble but not nessecarily that it was life threatening (at the time)... and then he died a few days later alone on his couch, a victim to his addiction. Layne Staley had lost his fiancee due to infections/complications as a result of her addiction to the needle as well, and that's a significant reason for why Layne spiraled so low. It's not confirmed, but speculated that Layne got his fiancee hooked on the shit, just due to association and being in that rock lifestyle... which would tremendously add to the burden, obviously.

    But of course, these are just junkies among the countless others. I'm not asking you to care.

    Not really. I wouldn't care if it was some famous person who's music I didn't like, say Brittany Spears or whoever.

    I loved the original line-up, and as much as I loved Cantrell's guitar playing, I didn't stick with them after Staley died. His voice being gone just sort of killed it for me (<--not meant to be tasteless)

    I agree they were underrated. I liked them a hell of a lot more than Nirvana. Cobain just seemed to be having a friggin' fatalist pity party all the time, at least the AIC fellas owned their anger and discontent.

    I choose AIC over Nirvana as well.
