Why is Kristen Pfaff on here? I never heard anything about her being with Layne. No confirmation, no nothing.

sandraApr 23, 2014

I don't understand why his marriage didn't get any media coverage. I could've sworn that it was at least in one or two magazine articles. He was head over heels over her.

That Tabitha rumor was SO DUMB and clearly false why is she listed here? There is NO evidence they were ever together. That "pencil" story sounds like a fake rumor started by a catty employee. Someone just so happened to "walk in on them" when she was asking for a "pencil in the butt"? And who the hell would ask for a pencil in the butt? Dumb 7th grade rumors.

Words can not explain how wonderfull Layne Staley was in every way. He was and still is the most beautiful man I have ever seen, and by far had the best voice.

colie916Jan 2, 2010

Layne was such a beautiful person, both on the inside and out. It is such a tragedy to lose such an angel. We love and miss you so much Layne. See you on the other side.
