Layne Staley tragically passed away on April 4th, 2002 and since then, we only had his back catalogue to listen to. But recently, MetalSucks has uncovered a singer who sounds exactly like Layne, but obviously is not him.
In 2017, MetalSucks found a track from the band Skorned, and the dude was a dead ringer for Layne:
Turns out that band has broken up and the dude is in a new project now, Chout. His name is Brendan Maier and the dude can wail.
At the very least, Alice In Chains can invite this guy’s band to open a local show on their upcoming tour, right?
