Layne Staley on Influencers. Influencers is a Project to make Tributes to people that inspire our lifes. This week is a a week to remember Layne Staley, 5 april 2002 he pass away. He was the vocals of Alice In Chains one of the most influential bands in the grunge movement. Layne struggled throughout his career with severe drug addiction, which eventually led to his death. I found this quote from him: “Drugs are not the way to the light. They won’t lead to a fairy-tale life, they lead to suffering.” and this Prieto’s illustration is a tribute to this man.
