Mad Season - River Of Deceit

Mad Season - River Of Deceit

Survey: Mad Season was well-known for their incorporation of blues and hard rock into their music. “River of Deceit,” their notorious single, is one of the more bluesy songs, as are songs like “Long Gone Day” and “Wake Up,” and songs like “Lifeless Dead,” “I’m Above,” and “I Don’t Know Anything” can be classified as pure alternative. Do you personally prefer the bluesy or alternative Mad Season songs? Fun Facts: During the production of the Mad Season album, vocalist and songwriter Layne Staley had been reading The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, which inspired most of the lyrics to “River of Deceit.” He also wrote the song partially about his addiction. The music for this song, on the other hand, came out of rehearsals that the band had before Layne Staley joined. In 2015, Chris Cornell collaborated with the remaining members of Mad Season for a tribute concert, and he has since added "River of Deceit" to his setlist during his solo performances. Today marks the 21st anniversary of the release of “River of Deceit” as a single. Enjoy! All rights reserved to Mad Season and Columbia Records. No copyright infringement intended.

Same Old Trip: How I Discovered Layne Staley and His Voice (More Than Once)

In honor of Layne Staley's 50th birthday, which was on August 22nd, I revisit my experiences with listening to Alice in Chains and discovering not only one of the very first rock singers I ever heard but also one of my favorite singers of all time at a very young age. I also discuss his legacy and how he should be remembered as a musician and as a person.
