For a little fun, let me ask you, dear ones, this question that I myself have been debating today:
Who was more high during their MTV Unplugged special – Layne Staley of Alice In Chains or Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots?
Now, I’m not going to answer this myself in this blog. Instead, I present the evidence for your viewing, and offer you the chance to vote and discuss. I know this will be a close race, but someone must be crowned “he who consumed the most drugs” today. And as a bonus, we can revel in amazing music created by people with heavy sorrow – in spite of that burden, even.
I will say one thing: some argue Layne was on methadone at this point; I say given he didn’t want to do the show, he took something more to get by.
