Additional notes
The band was started under the name Diamond Lie in 1984, which consisted of Jerry Cantrell on guitar, Mike Starr on bass and Sean Kinney on drums. After Jerry and Layne Staley met in 1987, Diamond Lie and Layne's previous band Alice 'N Chainz transformed into Alice in Chains, and the rest was history.

Alice in Chains were on an "indefinite hiatus" from 1996 to 2006. However, the group did not officially break up until Layne Staley passed away due to an overdose of heroin and cocaine in 2002.

Their 1994 EP Jar of Flies was the first EP to ever reach #1 on the Billboard 200 United States album chart, despite no tour to support it. This was the only EP thus far to ever gain this distinction, until the 2004 release of Jay-Z & Linkin Park's Collision Course.

Former bassist Mike Starr was 1 of 9 patients featured in the third season of the VH1 reality television show "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" and the second season of "Sober House With Dr. Drew" in 2010.
