Alice in Chains (1993) Interview
In the video, which shows the band at a press conference in Finland, Layne Staley and company discuss the departure of bassist Mike Starr, then President Bill Clinton, the tour with Metallica and various other subjects.
One highlight of the interview is the band’s “prediction” about Seattle’s emerging grunge scene, which was at a high point in the 1990s.
At 13:00, just watch him breathe. There was air coming in and out of his body. I know that’s obvious but just think about it. This was 1993, only 9 years short years later he’d be sitting dead on his couch for two weeks before anyone found him. Absolutely heartbreaking. There is help out there! Please please, your life is worth too much to fall on the same line as Layne (and many others) did. You are loved and you are worthy of living a life full of joy. Please reach out to someone you trust.
Fresh out of rehab Layne was so full of life and this is when I first started listening to them I was 8 and he was the coolest guy in the world to me then High school I remember how it kinda fucked with me
He's the most sober guy, and he died. Depression is a tricky bitch
In three years this happened.damn heroin
The one thing I absolutely Love in this Video is that all three of them you can tell are very Humble and Down to Earth ♥️🌹
Jerry was geeked out of his brain
Why wasn't Sean on this interview?
Why do you say he made a mistake ? What exactly was the mistake ? That must make you feel good when you say things of that nature because nobody would take a second to even give it a second thought. Then you say don't make the same mistake like you know what's really going on with people who self medicate. If someone is struggling to find peace through and they find a remedy that is best suited for'em but then the very same thing that is pulling them through the mud ends up causing more pain but they decide to keep on chugging on through. That's that persons life and not yours. Like the song says that of pain is self chosen and if we decide to burn out and not just fade away, that doesn't concern you in the slightest .

I remember the Metallica stadium tour, and bought tix for the concert in Seattle in '94. I wanted to see AiC so bad, but they pulled out due to "health issues". A band called Candlebox filled in that slot; and although they (Candlebox) really stepped up to the plate on short notice...they just were not a very good band and they faded fast. Fans were so disappointed that AiC pulled out, that the box office actually offered refunds. That's how great Alice in Chain's was!!!
The look on his face(5:52) when asked if they've changed since being famous. It's heartbreaking 💔
