‘Grassroots’ Movie Features Unheard Layne Staley Songs [VIDEO]
‘Grassroots’ is a new movie, starring Jason Biggs and Joel David Moore, based on the true story of a Seattle music critic who decides to run for the city council despite having no political experience. Hmmmm…sounds like Presidential material to me. But I digress. The movie looks like something I’d waste a couple of hours on anyway, but when I heard that the soundtrack featured previously unheard songs from late Alice In Chains singer Layne Staley – I was sold!
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to come up copies of the songs yet (believe me, I’m working on it!), but you can check out the movie trailer here:
Staley died in 2002 following a long battle with drug addiction. Alice In Chains played a video tribute to Staley during the changeover from the electric to acoustic set on their 2006 tour. Check it out here:
