Biography


Alice in Chains was formed in 1987 by guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Starr, drummer Sean Kinney and vocalist Layne Staley. They found commercial and artistic success in the early '90s, which stressed Staley's increasingly clear abuse of heroin. They made a good start by ruling Billboard Heatseeker with their debut album "Facelift".

Soon, they were flooded with various offers from scoring a movie, which they did by contributing song "Would?" to Cameron Crowe's film "Singles". Through the visuals work of the single, the band received an award for Best Video from a Film at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards. After releasing their second album "Dirt" which sent them to the top 10 on Hot 200, they landed a gig at the prestigious Lollapalooza.
