ok here I go again.
Don't get me wrong I love Layne Staley. but do people not realize that Jerry Cantrell wrote and sung all of the tracks. I don't just mean singing harmonies. I mean the entire tracks. The parts that sound like axl rose doing harmonies...that's Layne. Sure some of songs had verses with Staley by himself, but they seemed to be exceptions. EVERYTHING else is Jerry.
Not to say that Layne voice isn't awesome. and I don't want to come across as disrespectful, but I'm sick off hearing fanboys whinge about how there new stuff can't be the same without Staley. FFS Staley participated about 30% of the vocals in the bands catalog.
