KURT COBAIN :La lista de sus 50 discos favoritos de su vida …..

La página estadounidense Flavorwire publicó un documento hecho de puño y letra por el propio líder de Nirvana, en el cual figuran sus 50 discos favoritos.

Pese a que la lista fue publicada en el libro “Journals” de 2002 -una compilación de notas, dibujos y reseñas escritos por el desaparecido cantante-, muchos fanáticos y amantes de la música desconocían su existencia.

Entre los 50 discos favoritos de Kurt se encuentran trabajos musicales que fueron gran influencia para su banda Nirvana como Sonic Youth, David Bowie, The Beatles, Pixies, R.E.M., entre otros.

Hasta el momento se desconoce la fecha exacta de la publicación de la lista, sin embargo, hay una teoría que indica que fue escrita en 1992.

Alice in Chains : Layne Staley died here !!!



Layne Staley lead singer of Alice In Chains was found dead by his mother and stepfather in his 5th Floor Condo at Grandview Plaza on April 20, 2002.  His mother had called Seattle police to report that she had not heard from her son in over two weeks.

4528 8th Avenue NE, Unit: 5C
Seattle-University District, Wa. 98105

Seattle police went to Staley’s fifth-floor condo at about 5:40 p.m. Friday April 20th. They kicked in the door and Layne’s body was on a couch, lit by a flickering TV, next to several spray-paint cans on the floor, not far from a small stash of cocaine, near two crack pipes on the coffee table. His body was surrounded by various drug possessions and paraphernalia. The 6’1 Staley only weighed 86 pounds when his body was found. He had apparently been dead for at least two weeks. The autopsy report later concluded that Staley died after injecting a mixture of heroin and cocaine known as a “speedball”. The King County Coroner’s Office estimated Staley to have died on April 5, 2002, exactly 8 years after fellow grunge musician Kurt Cobain also died (Cobain was found three days later, on April 8).

These photos are unconfirmed but we just found these that claim to be from inside Layne’s Condo and the living room where he died on his couch.  The area where the couch was is circled.


Here’s a google street view link of the condo.


Here are some more shots of Layne’s building.

Throughout the band’s rise to fame, rumors of Layne’s heroin use were beginning to surface, and the band ended up cancelling a 1994 summer tour with Metallica after Layne began using heroin yet again after a 1993 stay in rehab. Layne’s continued use of heroin use was beginning to affect his ability to perform, so the band opted not to tour yet again in late 1995. Alice in Chains came back into the spotlight on April 10, 1996 to perform on MTV’s Unplugged. Layne looked very pale and he kept his entire body covered, including his hands. July 3, 1996 was Alice in Chains final performance with Layne at a show in Kansas City, Missouri.

In October of 1996, his fiancee Demri Parrott, died as a result of bacterial endocarditis. She was also a heroin addict as well. It is considered by most people that her death pushed Layne over the final edge as it were. He the became a recluse in his own condominum.
