Layne Staley & King Diamond

King Diamond on Layne Staley, Chips and Beer magazine #2:

"I actually talked to Layne… when he was alive. They toured and supported Ozzy Osbourne once. I saw the show. [Layne] had broken his leg at that time so he was actually doing the show in a wheelchair and on crutches. But I talked to him and we went out to a couple of bars and he told me something that really blew me away. He said: ‘Do you remember back in 1984? Those two crazy fans that called you from Seattle?’ I went, how the hell would he know that? ‘Well, I was one of them. It was me and my friend.’ The phone number, my private phone number, was on the old Mercy albums, and the address was the old haunted apartment that was put up as the management address and the management phone number. So they just took a chance and called. I remember I said ‘Who is this?’ And they went, ‘Is this King Diamond?’ I said ‘Er, this is Diamond Management.’ Okay, these are some fans calling. And we talked for like half an hour. We got in such deep trouble when his parents got the phone bill.”
