Rock Singer Layne Staley was one of the most private, mysterious and misunderstood performers ever! His story is told by his mother, sister and Layne himself.

Rock Singer Layne Staley was one of the most private, mysterious and misunderstood performers ever! His story is told by his mother, sister and Layne himself. It dispels the myths about Layne's childhood, his early days in music, and the final, very private years of his life. This book explains it all very well. I sure do feel sorry for him though. This book really showed me who Layne really was deep down. I always wondered why he had such strange, memorable music and now I know. The truth is hard to swallow but this book really makes sense.

Layne Staley: Angry Chair is not a biography of the late Alice In Chains singer. Argentinean writer Adriana Rubio barely even cracks a small window into his life. Essentially, the book is nothing more than one fan's viewpoint on the tortured existence of Staley, and how he affected her life, his words and music getting her through a battle with bulimia.

Rock Singer Layne Staley was one of the most private, mysterious and misunderstood performers ever! His story is told by his mother, sister and Layne himself. It dispels the myths about Layne's childhood, his early days in music, and the final, very private years of his life. It contains dozens of never-before-seen drawings, writings and photographs...that all shaped the ALICE IN CHAINS' songwriter/singer who sold millions of CDs...helping revolutionize modern rock.

I purchased the book because I am avid fan of Alice in Chains. The photographs and drawings were priceless, but the writing leaves much to be desired. The fact that Adriana Rubio is a journalist is almost frightening: did she actually earn a degree? I thought journalists were supposed to be excellent writers.
First of all, she has some very strange opinions regarding Layne Staley and how he seems to belong in a different era. For pages she persists in explaining her very naive and disjointed view of history. I wanted to read about Layne, not an overly simplistic (and completely unnecessary) description of humanism and the Renaissance.
Her bitterness at band members is surprising. Layne had the soul of a poet, according to Rubio, yet the others were unselfish and had nothing to do with the success of the band. Gee whiz, I wonder why none of them would return her calls?
Face it, Layne made mistakes. He tried to combat the results, but was unable to do so. If someone can't take the first steps to help themselves, there is no way their family members or friends will be able to save them.
Overall, if you are a fan you could buy the book, or you can just wait until someone makes a webpage and culls the good information from the tripe.

I appluase the author for taking on this task of writing a book on Layne Staley. While her heart was in the right place, I don't think her writing abilities backed up the book. She sidetracked too often and wrote some things that seemed unrelated to or rather insignificant to Layne's story, such as things about Kurt Cobain (if I wanted to read about him, I would've bought another book), her physical condition, how she put the book together or some lyrics from some other journalist that wrote songs about AIC. The interviews with Layne's mom and sister were very good on the other hand. They seemd truly heartfelt and authentic. I also enjoyed all the pictures from early on and some writings, drawings and other cool snippets (like ads Layne put up looking for work or promoting his band) in the book. Overall it's got some good info, I just hope the author does a better job on her next project and improves her style!

Bought this for a friend. Very hard to find so I was happy to get a copy for a friend who has been looking for it forever.
Story is unauthorized but its nice to get another view on the life of Layne.

I am a huge AIC fan, and an even larger Layne fan. I feel AIC is one of the most underrated bands ever, and that Layne never got the respect as an artist and a person that he deserved. I have all AIC�s CD�s, videos, etc. and have to say the day Layne was found dead, I felt like I lost a friend. I bought the book hoping to get �inside Layne� as the book and website stated. And if I had to state my opinion of the book it would be simply �not what you would expect.�
In all honesty, many of the people bashing the book are correct: It�s not the most well written book you will ever read and the content into Layne himself is minimal. I�m not one to criticize someone�s writing, but I feel you should expect a little more from someone who writes for a living. Like people said, the book was choppy from time to time, and every so often I found myself having to re-read pages because I just couldn�t quite grasp the point the author was getting at. But for insight into a great musicians head, I was more than willing to suck it up and read on.
But the �insight into Layne� was not what I expected it to be either. Every AIC fan knew Layne hated reporters and interviews and knew that there was slim to no chance ever of getting an interview. This author I feel played with our senses a little bit and gave a lot of us an impression that she sat down with Layne and this is what the book was about. Its really not. That�s what upset me. The majority of the book is simply talking with Layne�s mother and sister, general information into drugs and other past artists, and personal opinion. The book is filled with opinions that really didn�t have much backing except for the fact that the author was an AIC fan. Now I completely respect that of the author that she is a fan and wrote a book about it and her feelings, but I wish the book would be portrayed as such. Yes the book gets into what Layne may have been feeling, but thru opinions of his family, not himself. That�s what I was hoping for.
Though not what I expected, I am still pleased with the book. I wished she had more conversations with Layne and some with rest of the band, but any information on this subject is welcomed to a fan. I do feel she respected Layne and his family and did not wish to say some things (because I feel she even felt horrible for the lack of positive journalism given to this great artist) and thus the reason the book is somewhat short, redundant and choppy. I am grateful to her simply for taking on this subject and giving us fans a chance to take a small step closer to Layne. I truly feel she is a huge fan herself, and wish she would have portrayed the book as such, rather than an in-depth look �inside Layne.� I still feel any fan of Layne should read the book. You will enjoy it. If not for simply the history, but for the final conversation she had with Layne and what he said to her so near his death. If you don�t read anything else in the book, just read those few pages. His few words give an in-depth perception of what he was feeling, what he was going thru and who he felt was behind him. That�s all we want, and for the time being�this is all we have.

The book is ok.
It's more about the author's experience and opinions of Layne rather than Layne himself.
But it was still a decent read.
I wouldn't spend more than $40 on it.

Wanted this book for a long time but was afraid of the price. Oh well. glad I went ahead and bought it. Luv me some Layne Staley
Burilar
Awesome
I went to get the mail on Saturday and when low an behold my book about my idol Layne Staley came in the mail. So worth the wait and I love when the person wrote Thank you and put a smiley face on the package. That made my day. I wish I understood why it was $128.00 when on the book it said $12.95 in Canada.
