Coming Soon to the Moore!

I guess "Surviving Members of Alice in Chains" wouldn't fit on the Marquee. Yes, Layne Staley's passing was quite a shame, but it happened late enough after grunge's heyday that it was just a sad afterthought. I always liked Alice in Chains - not as much as Soundgarden, but I did think that their grunge goods were genuine. They had the longest hair and the weirdest hats. Their music was also the most brooding. A lot of their stuff dealt with Staley's drug abuse, which is at once tragic and something of a cliche. But now we're in a special era of widespread musical incompetence. Funny as it seems, I'd like to go back to those bad old grunge days. They seem so innocent in comparison to today.
