Former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently commented on the passing of late AIC frontman Layne Staley, who was found dead April 19th from a lethal heroin-cocaine overdose that is thought to have occurred two weeks prior.
"I don't really feel happy about doing much," stated Cantrell. "All you can really do is continue on. That's a really hard thing to do. I just lost one of my best friends a couple of weeks ago—my creative partner and my band all in one fell swoop. So, ya' know, I'm dealing with it by moving on, and I don't know how I'm gonna do that, but I'll get through it."
Cantrell and his band kicked off a summer tour with NICKELBACK last night in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
