What was Layne and Demri’s relationship like? : AliceInChains
Demri died at Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland and there were two people there – me and my sister. .. I can tell you that the contrived relationship between him and Layne are just that – contrived. Any suggestions or tips?. A Subreddit for anything Alice in Chains related. (i.e. Mad Season, Layne's side projects/art, Jerry's solo work.). ”DAVID DUET Layne and Demri had kind of an open relationship. he wished Rehab had Co-Addictive Behavior Counselling for couples.
I will forever cherish our short time together. I cannot imagine how you feel I have so much empathy for you. I get sick to my stomach when I read things about Demri that are her friends words but twisted around.
Her true fans have compassion. Love you Barb Susan S I totally agree and share the love and respect… I am a recovering addict…this month I got my 6yr 6mo clean time!!!

It is even hard this far out but so freeing…I have terminal cancer and if I could I would have love to have given your daughter whatever it was in me to make this happen so she could be here with you… Addiction is a disease and one we need to address in this country very seriously without all the judgement…We shall just pray for all the negative talk out there if there is and the ironic thing is that it is those that judge other addicts that will discover it is in their own family!
Love and support to you and your family Maria See at 2: Is it possible to be Demri on the left? The girl looks like her. Robert I really appreciate this site. Being and ex-heroin addict myself, I know first hand the trials and tribulations that come with doing hard drugs, trying to keep a relationship going with my addicted girlfriend, and playing in a rock band, all at the same time. I made it, but my wife sadly did not. She died last March.
Thank you for sharing. Hopefully others will not make the same mistakes that so many of us have. Carlstrom was tired from working long hours and originally did not want to do it, until Jerden convinced him otherwise. His plan was to record a song a day—basic tracks, overdubs and mixing. Because Carlstrom was burned out, Jerden was prepared to mix the songs himself. Two years later, he had the opportunity to work with Alice in Chains. When Trujillo found out, he told Cisneros they should get him a cake.
She agreed, and gave him money to buy a cake and candles. Jerry, Sean and Mike arrived in the late morning or early afternoon. Sean got all his parts down in about four takes, Shoaf recalled. Mike recorded his bass parts, and then Jerry recorded his rhythm guitar parts and some overdubs. Cisneros had her camera and took several photos during the session. There was a sense of excitement before Layne arrived.
Accounts vary as to the exact time he got there, but it was late—possibly as late as 3 A. When he finally arrived, the change in his physical appearance was striking even from his final live performances two years earlier, let alone from when Jerden, Carlstrom and Cisneros had last seen him.
He had grown his hair down past his shoulders, in its natural brownish-blonde color. He was wearing a white cap and eyeglasses. He had a dark grey shirt and a blue Dallas Cowboys jacket. He was wearing a necklace or chain that had what appeared to be a pipe hanging from the end.
He was also carrying a black leather satchel. He looked like an year-old man. Trujillo had a similar reaction. He had obviously been really affected by his substance abuse at that point, because he had atrophy in his legs.
He looked like an old man. He had no teeth. It was really sad, I was really heartbroken. Layne was still inside that shell. The humor and his wit were in there.

They had ordered baked potatoes, and people wanted butter. They set Layne up in a control room so he could listen to the rough tracks and work on lyrics. Trujillo was tasked with keeping an eye on him and helping him. Shortly after, Layne went to the bathroom and stayed there for a long time. He eventually went back to the control room, where he found the mini-fridge stocked with sodas.
Layne took out a bottle of root beer.
Cisneros and Trujillo saw him sitting on a couch in the control room having nodded off, the root beer spilled on the floor. Trujillo cleaned it up. V drums are a small electronic drumkit which can be programmed with different sound effects from a memory bank. Layne started playing around with the kit.
Trujillo showed him how to change and program the different sounds. Layne went nuts when he discovered he could program cartoon effects for the different pads. He was just scrolling through the bank sounds on the little brain of the V drums, and just trying everything.
I want to get one of these. Where do these come from? Cisneros took a picture of Layne on the drumset as he was about to blow out the candles. While Layne was playing around, he showed no indication of being ready to work. Eventually, Layne said he wanted to do everything—write lyrics and track his vocals—that night. He just sat there and froze up. Jerry did not argue, the rest of the band did not argue.

Trujillo thinks Layne may have thought Jerden was mad at him, possibly from memories of the blowup during the Dirt sessions when Jerden confronted him about his drug use. Jerden was skeptical, thinking Layne was using the wedding as an excuse so he could go back to Seattle to get drugs. Nobody else was there. So, to his credit, he may have definitely been trying to get there for a wedding party, or that was his plan. All three of them said Layne was not there. At that point, the band members left.
