are you guys telling me that the only person who cares that its gone is Mike?

OMG
At the dawn of the grunge movement centered in Seattle in the mid- to late-'80s, Alice In Chains came together in 1987, when singer and songwriter Layne Staley (who was fronting a different band called 'Alice 'N Chains') met up with guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell at the infamous Music Bank, a Seattle warehouse-cum-practice facility. Cantrell brought in a recent bandmate, bassist Mike Starr, who in turn brought in his friend Sean Kinney on drums.

Cool pictures. Looks like a place I'd take a picture of because it reminds you that you're still alive somehow.

I think Reciprocal Studios (the former Triangle Studios), home of many legendary recordings, has long been demolished too. They might just as well have deconstructed and then rebuild it in the EMP.

No it's still there. It's like a mile from my work. I don't know what it is operating as nowadays though.
