Personal Quote:

[on Alice in Chains' first album since the death of Layne Staley - Billboad, October 21, 2009] We had our hearts broken by losing Layne and losing ourselves. It took a lot to get through this process and to even take the chance, and stand-up and risk. See more »


When Layne Staley passed away, Cantrell adopted Staley's cat, a female Siamese named Sadie. The cat appeared on Cantrell's episode of MTV Cribs, which was shot at Cantrell's ranch in Oklahoma in September 2002. Sadie died on the same night of Alice in Chains' concert in Seattle on October 8, 2010, aged 18. She lived with Cantrell's family in Oklahoma until her death. See more »
