The Seattle Times: Body found in singer’s house in U District **

A body was removed last night from the University District residence of Layne Staley, lead singer and guitarist for the Seattle grunge band Alice in Chains.

Not that shocking, since he has had his bouts with heroin abuse, but they were my favorite band in the early 90’s. “Jar of Flys” was the most underrated album ever. There are acoustic songs and harmonies that haven’t been done since CS&N.
