New Music from Layne Staley!

A new, incredibly rare recording of late Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley have appeared on ebay. The auction is for a six track, studio master recorded in 1988 prior to Staley joining Alice in Chains, The band on the recording is 40 Years of Hate and it is being auctioned off by former member Ron Holt. According to Holt, the songs were never fully recorded and exist in this physical copy in an unfinished state. Holt is only auctioning off the master and not the publishing rights, but he has also said that he will consider other offers for those as well. If you are interested in the auction you can find it HERE! As I'm writing this, the auction is sitting a little over $600, but Holt is selling the copy out right for $5,000, so you better move quick!
