Top 10 Layne Staley Quotes

These are quotes by Layne Staley late singer of Alice in Chains.

The Top Ten

1 "I'm not into religion, but I have a good grasp on spirituality. I just believe that I`m not the greatest power on this earth. I didn't create myself, because I would have done a hell of a better job."

This list is kind of heartbreaking. Layne was an intelligent and positive guy but the drugs were just slowly killing him. It's so sad to have this amazing singer, this amazing person, be gone due to the terrible addictions of drugs. Rest in Peace Layne Staley, forever one of my favorite singers. - cjWriter1997
