Recently I asked an old and very dear friend of mine Darin Lamb to please be a guest on this website because I knew that he of all people had a lot to share about the REAL Layne Staley. He has been more then gracious to write the following post and he welcomes you as Laynes friends and fans to please ask him whatever you would like… the only thing he promises to be is BRUTALLY honest.
“Well… its been 10 years since Layne passed and I’ve kept silent. My name is Darin Lamb but most people know me as D-ROCK. At the time of Layne’s passing and many years before that I would have considered us best friends. There are many reasons for this but the #1 reason is because of our LOYALTY to each other as a friends!
I’ve basically kept silent all these years out of respect for his family and because I just wasn’t ready to break the silence.
But today I am ready to talk… through the years I’ve “thrown up” a little in my mouth at a lot of the shit I read about Layne that was supposed to be “factual”.
Layne showed me the meaning of what “unconditional LOVE” was and that’s why he is and forever will be a part of me. I’m brutally honest and I’m ready to answer some of the questions you might have about Layne.
I can tell you so many stories. Layne is a legend. He wore his heart on his sleeve but that slowly faded when people started to try and run his life. Which is sad for a lot of people whom he could have touched. But I would be honored and blessed to set things straight and I know in my heart Layne is probably saying “what the fuck its about time” so on the behalf of my BEST friend for years and his soul…
May you “REST IN PEACE” brother…..
Darin Lamb aka…D-ROCK”

I’ve turned comments back on for this post but don’t be shocked if I don’t respond and don’t be shocked if I do… I at one point closed it because I was getting so many emails every day it was overwhelming but it’s been a year so things have cooled down so I’m turning it back on…
