    :( RIP Layne Staley..

    SEATTLE, Washington (AP) -- A body was found at the home of Layne Staley, lead singer and guitarist for the Seattle grunge band Alice in Chains.

    The King County medical examiner's office scheduled an autopsy Saturday but investigator Jim Sosik could not immediately confirm the identity of the deceased late Friday night.

    The Seattle Post-Intelligencer quoted unidentified law enforcement sources as saying the body was Staley's.

    The person appeared to have been dead for several days, the P-I reported in Saturday editions.

    Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Sue Stangl told The Associated Press she could not confirm the identity of the deceased.

    A Seattle police dispatch officer referred inquiries to the police media officer, who did not return repeated pages.

    Like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Alice in Chains was a band prominent in the early '90s Seattle heyday of grunge rock.

    The group's first album, "Facelift," was released in 1990 and the band quickly rose to prominence, following with albums including "Dirt" and "Alice in Chains".

    In a 1996 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Staley spoke of how his drug use influenced his lyrics.

    "I wrote about drugs, and I didn't think I was being unsafe or careless by writing about them," he told the magazine. "Here's how my thinking pattern went: When I tried drugs, they were (expletive) great, and they worked for me for years, and now they're turning against me -- and now I'm walking through hell, and this sucks."

    I was just listening to AIC Unplugged this morning on the way to work!!!

    I was wondering what they were doing, and if they would ever get back together.

    Apparently he was dead for two weeks.

    Where the fuck was Jerry during all this?

    I hope Scott Weiland is paying attention. Cobain, Layne.. Rule of 3...

    What an absolute shame.

    People have a right to ask questions and dig deep
    when you're hurting people and things around you,
    but when I haven't talked to anybody in years, and
    every article I see is dope this, junkie that, whiskey
    this -that ain't my title....My bad habits aren't my
    title. My strengths and my talent are my title."
    Layne Staley, 1996
