I was privileged to see Nirvana only once in 1993. Nirvana played Buffalo’s Alumni Arena about 6 months before Cobain’s untimely death.
Miraculously, a horrendous copy of the show still exists on youtube ( what do you expect. It was 1993)
April 5th also marks the 16th Anniversary of the death of Alice in Chains Layne Staley
Layne Staley, lead singer of Alice in Chains, died 16 years ago on April 5, 2002. Staley was troubled with addiction throughout his career and died of an overdose mixture of heroin and cocaine. His body was found two weeks after he died, when his mother and police went to his home to check on him.
Alice in Chains came through Buffalo at least once, most notably in 1992 at Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium.
