Layne Staley was an American musician and singer-songwriter with a net worth of $14 million. Layne Staley acquired that net worth as the lead vocalist of the alternative metal/grunge band Alice in Chains. The band was nominated for a Grammy Award. Staley was born in Kirkland, Washington and died at age 35.
Layne Thomas Staley (August 22, 1967 - April 5, 2002) was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-lyricist of the rock band Alice in Chains, which was formed in Seattle, Washington in 1987 by Staley and guitarist Jerry Cantrell. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s.

I felt so sad for him and I missed him. He dropped out of my life for 15 years." In that same interview he hinted that his parents' break-up and his father's drug use were at least partially responsible for his own drug problems, and also said that he was convinced that if he became a celebrity his dad would return.
Staley began playing drums at age 12; he played in several glam bands in his early teens, but by this point, Staley had aspirations of becoming a singer. In 1985, Staley formed a band called Sleze, which also featured future Second Coming members Johnny Bacolas and James Bergstrom.
