    As a recovering drug addict it saddens me to hear about this death. I can only hope others will have the willpower to quit befor it kills them also.

  10. i'm majorly bummed/forums/images/icons/frown.gif have all their albums, saw em in concert. thought they kicked ass. staily and cantrell really worked well together. this very much sucks. looks like stephen tyler and anthony keidus(SP?) are the only dudes strong enough to kick haroine. i was also bummed when the guy from sublime died.

    What a bummer, I liked 'em.
    The guy was a mess though, from what I understand.
    -Still a shame.

    <font color=blue> This should be a wake up call to everybody else that is doing drugs, but the sad part is that drugs have their hooks into them so bad that it won't make a difference.

    Damn that sux, I liked AIC
    Gotta say though that the last few times I seen em in concert he was so whacked that the show realy sucked.

  14. ironiclly enough if it wasn't for all the drugs he wouldn't have wrote the songs he did. Dirt was majorly drug influenced. i really like the two accoustical cds they had- jar of flys and sap. i think cantrell really shines on those. the music on those are amazing. jar of flys was very dark but beautifull guatar work. i think i'll go pop in a AIC disc now and rock out in staley's honor.

    <font color=blue> I know, they al say that about writting songs under the use of drugs ....... I find it hard to believe that it can't be done without them though !

    That really sucks. But it was expected from what I understand. Pretty much everyone that knew him in the music community would always say it was just a matter of time.

    i heard today that when they found the body, he had been dead for 7 or more days, and the body was damn near unrecognizable.

    I hate hearing stuff like this.

    7 days the dude laid there dead and nobody missed him before this? That's really sad with all that money and fame it couldn't have bought him someone who would have thought to check out what happened when he went missing after a day.... but then again with true friends he probably never would have ended up like he did....
