The mayor of Seattle has named 22 August “Layne Staley day”...on the day that the rock god would have turned 52.
“Layne Staley day”…KEXP has said, is a call to attention for the Layne Staley-Fund, an organisation that strives to provide hope, education, treatment funds for Heroin recovery in the Seattle music community, set up by Staley’s family after he died in April 2002.

They did mention it a fair bit on social networks and such likes...
I think its great that our Layne gets recognised in this way...I always thought that his legacy got overlooked a little...
