    I feel this thread would be incomplete without the 3 young men Don McLean's "American Pie" is about

    "And the three men I admire most - the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost - They caught the last train for the coast. The day the music died"

    Without him, Alice in Chains ceased to exist.
    Don't give a fuck if they're still touring or not.
    Just ain't the same.
