Was never considered a legend by the media, they had already labeled him before he even died, but to his fans he will be and always remain our legend. He sang with such honesty and bared his soul and pain for all to see. If only he knew how many of his fans that he saved from a similar fate as his own. I know that I owe him a debt of gratitude. I guess the only way I can repay him is to continue to love his music and share it with as many people as I can... THANKS LAYNE RIP

Layne was true to himself - No Excuses. His message has saved a lot of troubled fans... He will always be remembered. Sadly he was so under-rated and deserved a lot more credit than the media ever gave him. We remember you... RIP
