Layne Staley net worth: Layne Staley was an American musician who had a net worth of $10 million dollars. Born August 22, 1967 in Kirkland, Washington, Layne Staley died on April 5, 2002 in Seattle Washington. He is best known as the lead singer and co-songwriter for the rock band Alice in Chains, which he co-founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in 1987 in Seattle, Washington. Ironically, Staley and fellow musician Kurt Cobain both died on April 5th (in different years) in Seattle. Both musicians also famously struggled with drug addiction. In an MTV interview, which didn't surface to the public until almost a year after Staley's death, Staley said he knew he was "near death". The interview took place less than three months before the musician overdosed. The interview reveals that Staley's father left the family when Staley was only eight years old and that Staley somehow believed that if he became a (famous) rock star his father would return. His father did indeed surface when he saw a picture of Staley in a magazine. Staley was cautiously optimistic and began a relationship with his father (who had been sober himself for only six years at that time). The relationship changed for the worse when his father went back to using drugs—they did drugs together and his father ultimately became dependent upon Staley for drug money, a situation that contributed to Staley's downward spiral. Sadly, his father eventually kicked the drug habit and Staley continued to fight the addiction—until he lost his battle on April 5, 2002, when Layne Staley died of an overdose.
