Hot on the heels of Kurt Cobain's "Journals", a biography of late ALICE IN CHAINS frontman Layne Staley, dubbed "Angry Chair", chronicles the singer's heroin addiction and his death by overdose and includes Staley's last interview, photos and personal drawings and letters from his journal. Author Adriana Rubio began the book with the Staley family's blessings, but the singer's mom later said it "lacked concern for basic human dignity" and withdrew support, according to Rolling Stone. Rubio isn't surprised: "Even apart from his drug use, Layne's life was so sad."For more information, including a sampling of Staley's art, poems, and photos, visit the project's official web site at this location.
