"The songs are about things that we were thinking and we wrote 'em down, and when you listen to 'em, whatever you think it's about...THAT'S what it's about!"
(Layne Staley, 1995)

"I'm not set for life, but I guess I can go anywhere I
want. If only I knew where to go."

"Drugs will have a huge effect on my work for the rest of my life,
whether I'm using or not. There are lasting consequences for using
drugs. It doesn't matter whether I am taking drugs or not, I'll still be
paying for my prior use."
(Layne Staley)

"When I'm writing music, I find myself in my head. Whatever dramas or
chaotic happenings are going on in my life, I can always find that place
inside my head where I see myself as the cleanest, tallest, strongest,
wisest person that I can be at that moment."
(Layne Staley, 1996)

"We survived a Slayer crowd every night for about fifty days and thought we could do about anything after that."
(Layne Staley, Alice in Chains)

"He was not suicidal and did not want to die or leave us. So, he experienced his own death right up until that last injection for pain relief. His little, emaciated body wasn't working anymore. His organs were shut down. He was in excruciating pain. I know he was terrified. Layne was a proud man, and I know of no one who would trade his years-long death experience. He wrote that knowing you were going to die was a great privilege, for then you could live the rest of your life with good intention. Layne was a beautiful mind and a great soul, spirit, heart trapped in an addict's body. He innocently tried recreational drugs out of curiosity and he was "hooked", led around by it for the rest of his life. He was not a weak person, an immoral person. He had a very strong physical and mental constitution. His brain chemistry was whacked by drugs. When he realized he was hooked for life, he dedicated his career to warning others "Don't Follow", and he wrote honestly about the experience in order to warn people away." - Nancy, Layne's mother
