About Alice In Chains
Originally a Speed Metal band, the unfortunately named Alice N’ Chainz performed in Seattle area bars, but disbanded shortly after realizing that Slayer cover songs weren’t exactly the road to success.
Soon after Layne Stanley met fellow musician Jerry Cantrell who offered him a spot in his band Diamond Lie, where he played alongside future Alice In Chains members Sean Kinney and Mike Starr.
Diamond Lie eventually dropped their name and adopted the newly improved Alice In Chains identity, and with it released three successful Grunge offerings in Facelift, Dirt, and their 1995 self-titled album.
Stanley died on April 5, 2002 from an apparent drug overdose, but his legacy lives on in such Alice In Chains classics as “Man in the Box”, “Them Bones”, and “Rooster”.
