|Expressing Their Inner Layne Staley|
Layne's Staley's voice, bridging the late 1980's with early 1990's grunge vocal stylings, is a difficult voice to replicate. However, the following bands/vocalists have "pulled out their inner Layne Staley" quite effectively.

Surprise, Surprise. Jerry Cantrell sound like Layne Staley? Certainly, and his solo albums are the closet one can come to AIC without being AIC.
The Other Side
Early Godsmack was incredibly AIC influenced. This EP reminds me of Jar of Flies and Sap, is one of my favorite Godsmack releases.

There are so many similarities between early AIC and this grunge band.
