One of the most well-known rock singers to have emerged in the 20th century, Layne Staley was the lead singer and co-songwriter for the rock band 'Alice in Chains'. Known for his distinctive vocal style, Staley became an international rock star during the 'grunge rock movement', a subgenre of alternative rock music.


He changed the face of rock music and is widely regarded as one of the best male rock vocalists. Introduced to the field of music at a very young age, he started playing the drum at the age of 12 and went on to play for many bands during his teenage years.


Despite the growing popularity of his band, 'Alice in Chains', Staley slowly stepped out of the spotlight and remained averse to the media glare. Unfortunately, his personal life was not as peaceful as he became involved in drug abuse and suffered from addiction problems all his life. His drug problems eventually lead to his tragic death at a young age of 34.
