Layne Staley Replacement For Pearl Jam Side Project Found? (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday Layne Staley Replacement For Pearl Jam Side Project Found? was a top story. Here is the recap: (Banana 101.5) Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready recently revealed that there is roughly an album's worth of songs that the mid-90′s side project, Mad Season, never got to record with vocalist Layne Staley before his return to Alice in Chains and eventual death. Now it appears that Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan will lend his voice to the project that may be out as early as this year.

Mad Season was a side project featuring Staley and John Baker Saunders on bass (both of whom are now deceased) with McCready and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin rounding out the lineup. The band almost became more than just a passing side project, as both Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains were going through "growing pains." Ultimately, Staley returned to AIC and Pearl Jam moved forward as well.

During the time following the release of their only album, 'Above,' the group reconvened without Staley and recorded a number of demos. "We have 13 unreleased songs we never did," McCready explained before announcing his intentions to draft another singer to finish the songs. We're trying to find singers that are up to the caliber of Layne to do justice to it. I know a lot of [great singers] but it's just getting the commitment." - And how does Lanegan now figure into it?
