    This doesn't really belong here.

    That said, after one rehearsal for the tour his kid probably said "Dad, you can't play. You're a meth freak".

    Everything belongs here that could have even a remote connection to politics (Van Halen... rehab... war on drugs... politics!) You may not like it, but it'll still be posted.

    BTW it is sad to see the number of talented musicians who wreck thier lives like this, B Holiday, C Parker, J Hendrix, J Joplin, J Garcia, The guy from Alice in Chains (can't remember the name liked some of the songs..

    Very sad.

    Layne Staley's the guy from Alice in Chains. One of the few times I got choked up about a celebrity's passing (Alice in Chains was one of my favorite bands from the 90's).

    Nutshell, Alice in Chains

    Oh my god. That pic puts him on par with Whitney Houston.

    I had just seen a vidoe of him talking about his guitar and how he came to build it. There was also a discussion about the copy of his guitar which was built by a guitar builder/tech at Fender. Eddie was amazed at the likeness tio the original. Gave huge props to the guy.
    Anyways, during the interview I noticed Eddie was very fidgety and he looked underweight to me. Hell, at his age he should be sporting some kind of midrift, you'd think.
    But that picture went beyond what I saw in the interview. Sorry no link. I f anyone is interested I'll try to find it.
    I thought it was crack or coke he was on but crystal meth sounds about right, too.

    There are no lesions on Eddie though. Are we sure it's CM he was doing and not somethig else?

    Here's one of my favorite videos of all time, and one of VH's best tunes ever. Notice the ending telling how Eddie ends up.
