    Once again, their own song is a fitting epitaph for a departed member.

    I just can't wait to see them live (for the first time) next time they role through, and I agree Arc.

    I'm sorry, I had to laugh at you saying you want to see them "live." Mike Starr is now dead, and Laine Staley's been dead for quite a while.

    I actually saw them when they were alive, in the 90's.

    I realize two of the original members are dead, but if you weren't aware they've reunited (see video a few posts up - song is from latest album "Black Gives Way to Blue") with 2 original members (guitarist and drummer), and then their bassist who took over for Starr when he left in 93 and new singer William DuVall. Chains put out a new album in 2009 which was actually a positive effort.

    They did a nationwide tour with Mastodon and Deftones about 6 months ago. I would have attended when they played Seattle but that was when I was completely broke

    Another song from the latest album:

    They're rarely on my playlist, but they were always one of the most unpretentious bands to me. I wish I could say I knew more about the bass player, but Cantrell and Staley stood out.
