Chris Cornell About Layne Staley

“When I was asked to do that [performing at the Mad Season reunion], what came next was listening to the original recordings, which was listening to Layne sing in headphones over and over to learn it, and feel like I really knew it. That was kind of unexpected, I don’t want to say dark, but it was tough, because I hadn’t really done that. Listening to his voice intimately, and sing those words and sing those songs, it definitely sort of forced me to reckon with what happened in his life, and the fact that he’s not around anymore. I think that’s tough for everybody that knew him, as it is for anyone that loses someone who is a friend that is young, or that affects your life, just fans of his even.

I think that sometimes almost the bigger tragedy in a weird way is all of the future imagined creative projects that could have happened that didn’t. I feel the same way about lots of brilliant people who die young, kind of senselessly especially. If it’s an accident you feel like it’s an act of God, but if you feel like they did it somehow, it’s sort of harder to reconcile. It’s hard to find a silver lining, but it doesn’t change what he did at all.”

Mad Season ‘Long Gone Day’

LONG GONE DAY
Mad Season

Mad Season Long Gone Day

So much blood I’m starting to drown
Runs from cold to colder
Time to time the sky’s come down
To help me lose my way
Tears and lies for answers
You and open veins, God knows I’m gone
Girl I just want you to
Come on down
Lord it’s a storm and I’m heading to fall
These sins are mine and I’ve done wrong, oh babe
Come on downLong Gone Day
Mmmm, who ever said
We wash away with the rainSee you all from time to time
Isn’t it so strange
How far away we all are now
Am I the only one who remembers that summer
Oh, I remember
Everyday each time the place was saved
The music that we made
The wind has carried all of that awayLong gone day
Mmmm, who ever said
We wash away with the rain

So many tears I’m starting to drown
The rain in heaven’s all come down
Silver spoons affix the crown
The luckless ones are broken
Fears and lies for answers
You and open flames
God knows I’m gone
And I just want you to
Come on down, hmmm

Lord it’s a storm and I’m heading to fall
These sins are mine and I’ve done wrong
I want you to, oh, I just want you to
Come on down

I fear again, like then, I’ve lost my way
And shout to God to bring my sunny day
