JERRY CANTRELL On LAYNE STALEY's Passing: I Don't Really Feel Happy About Doing Much

Former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently commented on the passing of late AIC frontman Layne Staley, who was found dead April 19th from a lethal heroin-cocaine overdose that is thought to have occurred two weeks prior.

"I don't really feel happy about doing much," stated Cantrell. "All you can really do is continue on. That's a really hard thing to do. I just lost one of my best friends a couple of weeks ago—my creative partner and my band all in one fell swoop. So, ya' know, I'm dealing with it by moving on, and I don't know how I'm gonna do that, but I'll get through it."

Cantrell and his band kicked off a summer tour with NICKELBACK last night in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
