ALÎCE ÎN CHAÎNS, MAD SEASON, TEMPLE of the DOG & The GACY BUNCH, were all late'80's-'90's bands this iconic singer, LAYNE STALEY (8/67-4/02) was part of. He is the legendary native Seattle Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Vocalist, Lyricist. Catapulted to Super-Stardom as Front man for the seminal group(s) Alice in Chains & Temple of the Dog. Bands would go on to influence myriad groups worldwide, & inspiration can be detected throughout rock bands to the present day.
The Pacific Northwest region of U. Spawned a unique plethora of post-glam, MTV metal/hair bands, in a scene that was'off the grid' regarding US music industry. Eventually, this "GRUNGE" genre, which can also be credited to SOUNDGARDEN, PEARL JAM & NIRVANA- would be the center of a pioneering rock&roll movement. Arguably the 2 most prolific, recognizable & talented voices of our generation, initially paved the way for the 1990's American Rock & Roll resurgence, have BOTH passed away. Layne Staley, who tragically died at age 35, after years of isolation, socially withdrawn & reclusively self sequestered in his Seattle condo.
The JACKET is a LEVI's Original, MADE IN USA, LARGE, Fits like an XL. I'm 6'3 & this is plenty spacious for comfort. A thick hoodie, sweatshirt or warmer coat/insultator will have amble room to wear underneathe.In Cali we do "layers". I only wore this coat a single night, to watch AIC at SHORELINE AMPHITHEATER in Mountain View, California(heart of #SiliconValley). The gig was w/Alice in Chains replacement singer. PAINTING remained unscathed, non-blemished, cracked, scuffed, marked, soiled, spilled on, etc. I had bought the denim only weeks prior to painting this.. And the coat had subtle signs of light wear. Only tiny hints of dusty discoloration underneath either cuff. I wanted to preserve the coats original size & shape, hence no washing machine/or dry cleaning occurred on my watch. And I suspect same for the prior owner, hence the non100% clean cuffs. Based band patch above the portrait, sewn onto the coat, & another small patch on the front, above the left pocket. It's a symbol that represents Dracula...
