I miss Layne Staley

Alice in Chains is one of my favorite bands. Something about how any of these songs off of Dirt or Jar of Flies can take me directly back to my childhood – I was a little kid listening to this stuff and formulating thoughts about how these songs made me feel. The 90s were both a superficial, almost cartoon-like essence but there was also this dark, very frail portion to it as well…I was happy in the dark. Here are few of my favorite takes/videos from Alice in Chains – they should send you right back. William DuVall is a great replacement vocalist, but nothing like the original with Layne.
I’ve always lived better in the dark.

Traffic: Light up or Leave me alone
The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys is the sixth album by English rock band Traffic, released in 1971. As with other Traffic albums, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys featured different forms and offshoots of rock including jazz rock, progressive rock, as well as classic rock and roll. The title of the album was suggested by the actor Michael J. Pollard. The album features the hit "Rock & Roll Stew (part 1)" and the FM hit, "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys." This is the only original Traffic album to feature two lead vocals by Jim Capaldi ("Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" and "Rock & Roll Stew"). His only other unaccompanied vocal on a Traffic studio album was "Dealer" from Mr. Fantasy.
"Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" was covered by noted jam band Phish.
