Anonymous asked: Not a confession: I miss Layne, it's unbelievably crazy. I cry every time I think about him or see a picture of him. I don't know why. I didn't know of Alice In Chains before Layne died, I was too young to have been able to decipher any music, but now out of nowhere these emotions are hitting me like a bus. I can't take it.
The guys are in no way, shape or form are trying to replace Layne. The most they are doing is paying tribute to Layne in his memory. I can’t even imagine the burden on his shoulders, probably trying to make the fans happy. He’s doing a kickass job. That’s why they continue to make music to this day. They said if it didn’t feel right, they wouldn’t be doing it. He is not a failed attempt at a replacement for a singer. They made a good decision with picking Will. I can’t think of anyone better. You say you’re a die heart Alice fan but you really aren’t showing it. If you were you would support them through thick and thin.
It really sickens me to see “fans” talk shit like this about him and you know damn well that wouldn’t fly with Layne. Will deserves all the respect he can get.
