Seattle’s mayor, Jenny Durkan, proclaimed August 22th to be “Layne Staley Day” honoring the late Alice In Chains’ singer and in support of the Layne Staley Memorial Fund. The date is actually Staley’s birthday, who would have been 52 years old this year. “We support our residents who struggle with substance use disorder, and commend Layne Staley Memorial Fund for providing hope, education, support and treatment funds for heroin recovery in the Seattle community,” the document reads. “The city of Seattle celebrates Layne’s artistry and the promotion of the arts in Seattle as we work toward a more vibrant, healthy and safe city.”
