On April 5th, we lost two great voices of grunge and music in general. While they didn't pass away the same year, it stings that two important front men from the Grunge era lost their lives on April 5th. It's one of those odd coincidences that make you stop and reflect. It's been an honor playing both of these guys and their bands.
Back in 1994 Kurt Cobain of Nirvana committed suicide at the age of 27.
And in 2002, Layne Staley of Alice in Chains died of a drug overdose at the age of 34.
I hate watering down words about how important these two were/are, but we all know. I'd like to think at least. Check out some isolated vocals from Kurt and Layne above. What are your favorite songs from them?
