    Going through an AIC phase.

    In regards to the albums of the Layne Staley era, I’d probably go...

    Dirt
    Facelift
    Jar of Flies
    Sap
    Tripod

    There’s a music thread. But we only appreciate good grunge in there like the Toadies.

    Yeah he's a truly sad, semi horrific, tale of letting success get the better of him.
    Down in a hole wasn't written by Layne or even about him (but a band members girlfriend/wife (that I can remember)) but that is all I think about when I hear it... him withering away to skin and bone with his teeth falling out.... unable to be saved.....

    It's mentioned how disheartened he would get when fans came up to him to boast about doing drugs. Their music is the byproduct of what the members went through (I'm pretty sure all of them struggled with substance abuse of some sort), and that's why so many of their songs hit you harder.

    Yeah, that song comes on once or twice every few years in my car by chance and it's a gut punch every time I hear it.

    Maggot Brain is just an insane piece of music. Eddie Hazel is in my top 5 guitarists of all time list. Just complete mastery.

    I’ve been listening a lot recently to this British dude called David Bowie. Bit of a throw back really, but made me feel like music does have a future.

    Where's the best place to start with him? Does he have like, a single that's okay or anything? Maybe even a song or two in a different style?

    Really sad to see Daft Punk retired the other day. Even though it's not like anyone died or whatever and they had basically been done unofficially for like 7 years.

    Anyway... way back in the Homework days these guys were probably my first foray into electronic music. And they just kept on putting stuff out that caught me as the years went on. Discovery is my favorite, though. And I just popped this on last night for the first time in years and forgot how fun it is.

    I'm not a really big fan of Last Podcast on the Left.

    But this is pretty awesome if you're into freaky stuff and Bowie.
