Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. The band became known for its distinct vocal style, as well as the harmonized vocals of Staley and Cantrell. Staley was also a member of the supergroups Mad Season and Class of 99. He struggled throughout his career with severe drug addiction, which caused his death in April 2002.
