Mad Season’s “Above” Will Have A Deluxe Reissue And Documentary [VIDEO]
Although Mad Season only got 1 album done before Layne Staley’s overdose, “Above” was such an incredible album that it still stands against anything today. And now it’s getting a re-issue and mini documentary.
Technically it wasn’t even Layne’s death that stopped the band. Initially the bass player, John Baker Saunders, passed away in 1999. Layne didn’t OD until 2002, that essentially pulled the plug on the band. But now with Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin in the band along with Pearl Jam’s Mike McCReady the band is back and even has some new songs to boot.
