“Here I am holding a photo from 22 years ago. The reason I have a beard is because of the man on the right in the Ministry hat holding up a bottle of Jack. Thank you Layne Staley for the inspiration in music and beards. I still love listening to your music.” - Matt Bischoff

"I was at the Music Bank all night, and it was after 2, and we had no beer left. And these two guys walked in with a case of beer. I was like, "Hey, where are you going with that beer?" And they go, "We’re going to see this band"… I don’t even remember the name of the band. I go, "They suck! Come into our room with the beer and we were jamming, and we were playing good that night." - Mike Starr (Everybody Loves Our Town)

"I mean, I have felt under pressure, but the pressure I’m under and the pressure that Kurt Cobain is under are two completely different worlds. He’s in a position where he was thrust into stardom. He went from playing 150-capacity venues to headlining arenas, and we’re just not at that level yet. But the pressure to continue, to work harder, to be a career band and not a flash in the pan, that’s definitely there." - Layne Staley
