Let's Talk Alice in Chains

I just wanted to have a thread to discuss a great band that is no longer great due to drugs. I don't know if this violates the rules because i dont consider AiC a mainstream band but if it is please Mods delete it. Drugs **** up great bands and Layne Stanley's voice was that of a god.

By far my favorite song is Would. Stanley's voice is amazing on this track.

The new incarnation of AiC isn't half bad, not quite as good as the original sound but its better then most of the other stuff out there.

They were pretty hyped up for me, but after I downloaded and listened to two of their albums a few times, they got deleted without a second thought.

It could be argued the exact opposite that drugs create incredible music as well.

Jimmi Hendrix
The Beatles
Any other band from the 70's period

I don't see how so many ppl dislike them. AiC is one of the most respected bands by their peers. If other bands have so much respect for them then they deserve it. And Unplugged is amazing, anyone who doesn't have it is missing out on some of the greatest AiC tunes ever.

Edit: And I don't think drugs ruined the band. Drugs made them what they were. Layne just took it to far. But thats also what made his lyrics awesome.
