So I guess it's not by chance that Hetfield chose the song with perhaps the most direct allusion to drug addiction. Kind of bad taste considering the sheet he caught for calling out Staley's addiction.

to be fair, most of Dirt is about drug addiction

Just picked this up on vinyl yesterday (RSD Black Friday release). Brother, with Ann Wilson on backing vocals, has always been one of my favorite AIC songs.

I have a soft spot in my heart for AIC. My cousin overdosed earlier this year. Nobody knows when it happened exactly as his sister dropped him off at his house on NYE, and he was found with a needle in his arm on January 3rd. He had a really messed up childhood (he was abused by family friends and only came out about it when he was well into his 20s) and drugs were how he coped. Great guy, always smiling, carried on like everything was fine, he was in and out of prison on minor offenses, but he would be happy to give you the shirt off his back. He eventually went from prison to rehab, and seemed to have turned his life around until...

Whenever I hear “Would” by AIC I cry, and honestly their entire catalog is a bit more somber to me. It sucks because I really like that song, but after seeing how “Would” played out in my own family it just hits differently now. I can sympathize with the band, and I truly do feel pitty for Layne. Drugs suck.

(I didn’t come to snuff the rooster or this thread)

James just got out of his second stint in rehab himself... sure it was also a bit cathartic.

Anyway, this is the only acoustic version of Would we need...

and for those unaware, Metallica was in the audience. The haircuts joke on the bass is for them.
