    cool! listening now!

    in brief:

    finishing an album this fall and touring next year with planet us?

    said losing cobain and staley was as bad as losing jimmy,janice, and jim morrison back then.

    staley was his favorite from the seattle era.

    he is real close with jerry cantrell

    sam originally wanted to do this with dave in '97 but dave thought the thing with cherone wouldn't workout and he wanted to be back in vh

    says he and dave are gonna try and out-do each other. dave is closing first night and then sam and so on...so calculate to see who is closing your show

    Wow! If that schedule holds true, Sammy's opening the show in St Louis, his biggest market.

    Dave opens on the 8th at Alpine Valley. That means I can leave early!

    To Sammy, perhaps. But Hendrix, Joplin, and Morrison were all in the prime of their careers, unlike Staley (but like Kurt). The three of them died within about a 3.5 year span (it was about 8 years between Cobain and Staley), though their ages were all tragically young (and almost identical--except Staley), and their drug habits were very similar.

    And I just don't think Cobain's and Staley's deaths will collectively have the impact on the rock community the way that Joplin's, Hendrix's, and Morrison's deaths collectively did. Though that was probably because Rock 'N Roll was so much more vibrant and exposed to the public eye back then...

    Janice Joplin - died October 4, 1970 - age 27 - heroin OD
    Jimi Hendrix - died July 4, 1971 - age 27 - alcohol/barbiturate OD (heavy heroin user, though not linked to his death)
    Jim Morrison - died April 25, 1974 - age 27 -heroin OD
    -----------
    Kurt Cobain - died April 5, 1994 - age 27 - shotgun wound (heavy heroin user, though not linked to his death)
    Layne Staley - died April 21, 2002 - age 34 - heroin OD

    TT, thanks for the cool link to that interview. Great to hear Sammy give props to Layne as he was the baddest ass singer from that grunge era without a doubt, and no offense to Cornell, but that's just how I see it. The part about Jerry saying if anything could have been done he would have done it, just about explains how much the hooks were in Layne. People who have any desire to use that shit listen to what a world-class partier like Sammy is saying about it. Stay away!

    Also, the competition between Dave and Sammy and Sammy seeing it as just that is so cool. They are going to be coming out with both guns blazin'!If Sammy does open the show in St Louis Diamond D, that will be odd, but maybe with that setup and the way Sammy's hardcore St Louis audience will go off during and at the end of his set, we may get to see DLR pull out all the fucking stops! I can only hope this is exactly how this one plays out. 40 days to go, I can fuckin' dig it!
    John 3:16, Can You Dig It?

    People, the 6 wings of the Mighty Van Halen will fly again! Can You Dig It?

    And underneath the arch, it turned into a march,
    and there He found a spark to set this fucker off!
    Set it off, set it off now children,set if off!

    We are down the road! I Can Dig It! Can You?

    While I was a huge AIC fan and I don't mean to diminish the tragic nature of Layne's death, Sammy is a bit off here. Layne Staley the musician ceased making vital contributions to music about a decade ago. After Dirt and Jar of Flies, AIC became a retread band.

    Morrison, Joplin and Hendrix on the other hand, were still making great music.

The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes!

    </font>[/QUOTE]Best to check your facts... Jimi was into LSD at varying periods and a regular pot smoker. But there was no indication that he ever was a herion user of any regularity. I spoke at length one evening with Billy Cox and he said outside of regular pot smoking the whole drug scene with Jimi was way overblown.

    Yep. He died July 3, 1971 (he was 28 years old). I got his bio mixed up with groupie Pamela Courson's (who gave Morrison his lethal dose of heroin and who herself died of a heroin OD at age 27 on April 25, 1974).

    Perhaps ... since I wasn't there.

    The following link from The Indiana Prevention Resource Center @ Indiana University noted the following:

    Selected Heroin-Related Problems of Celebrities of the 1960's and 1970's

    1970 Jimi Hendrix, 27 year old vocalist Hendrix died of a barbiturate overdose within weeks of Joplin -- he was heavy heroin user and also died near the peak of his career and had performed at Woodstock
