"The early-'90s Seattle grunge band, long overshadowed by its hometown peers (Nirvana, Pearl Jam), gets its due in this debut book from a Georgetown graduate student. Taking center stage is original frontman Layne Staley who, like Kurt Cobain, found celebrity and success difficult and drugs an easy out. But there's also a deep dive into the band's musical influences and its impact on the broader rock scene, explaining both its roots and its reach" --Billboard, Summer Book Preview "De Sola explains in riveting detail how AIC became one of the most important bands to emerge from the Seattle rock scene, and throws new light on the dark impulses that drove it to both greatness and tragedy. Compulsively readable." --John Jobling, author of U2: The Definitive Biography "A stellar grasp of document sources interwoven with an incredible depth of all-new interviews are the making of the first truly comprehensive biography of Alice in Chains. The story blends musical world, personal lives and the demands of the business Alice in Chains entered - whether the cut-price early days or the bombastic cash-overload of their peak success - to show how each element coexisted, impacted, clashed or simply destroyed the other." --Nick Soulsby, author of I Found My Friends: The Oral History of Nirvana "A well-reported history of one of the most important and influential bands to emerge from the Seattle scene. Alice in Chains will appeal to grunge fans and metal-heads alike." --Mark Yarm, author of Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge "De Sola brings a refined sensibility to the tale of Alice in Chains... exhaustively researched" --Kirkus Reviews
