In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn. All I want for you to do is take my body home.
Andy Wood - 1967/1990, & Kurt Cobain - 1967/1994.
Shannon Hoon - 1967/1995, & Jeff Buckley - 1966/1997.
Layne Staley - 1967/2002, & Mike Starr - 1966/2011.
Scott Weiland - 1967/2015, & Chris Cornell - 1964/2017.

  • Friend: Hey man, you alright?
  • Me: *thinking about how Layne Staley's first single with Alice in Chains was called 'We Die Young' and he ended up dying at 32 from a drug overdose, and how there is a line where Layne says 'take another hit, and bury your brother' and he had to bury his friend Andrew Wood who also died because of an overdose, and how Wood was also roommates with Chris Cornell, who just committed suicide, just like Kurt Cobain did back in '94, and how the musicians I grew up adoring are no longer with us and how gutted I feel to know that this world lost such talented souls too soon*
  • Me: Yeah, I'm alright.
My life: a novel
  • Me: do want to hear loads of useless information about bands I obsess over and famous people I have never met to distract myself from the shit hole that is my life?
  • Person: .....
  • Me: Okay, here goes.. It started in 1990....
