Grunge icon Lanegan passed away at his home in Killarney, Ireland on February 22, age 57.

Lanegan was the frontman with Screaming Trees from 1985 to 2000 and was also known for his work with bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Mad Season, The Gutter Twins and for his many other numerous collaborations.

The news of Lanegan’s passing prompted a huge wave of tributes on social media from the likes of Eddie VedderDave GrohlManic Street PreachersTim Burgess, Courtney Love and Sleaford Mods.

Lanegan’s 12th solo album, ‘Straight Songs Of Sorrow’, came out in 2020 and served as a companion to his far-reaching memoir, Sing Backwards And Weep. In a four-star review, NME described the record as being “open and viscerally honest” while containing “music that salves the soul”.


Back in December 2021, Lanegan released another memoirDevil In A Coma. In the book, the musician detailed his near-death experience from COVID via prose and poetry that he wrote while he was ill with the virus.
