Sammy Hagar knows how to throw a bash, and it helps when you make sure that Alice in Chains singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell is on the guest list. Cantrell made a guest appearance at Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina (Oct. 13) to take part in Hagar's 65th birthday celebration.
Hidden in Alice in Chains' classic album 'Dirt' lies 'Intro (Dream Sequence) / Iron Gland.' The song went unlisted on the 1992 release of Alice in Chains' sophomore album and was tucked between 'God Smack' and 'Hate to Feel,' which caused the track listing to become inaccurate.
Although there was no official breakup of Alice in Chains, the band effectively split up in 1996. Singer Layne Staley had become a recluse after the death of his ex-fiancee, which caused the troubled vocalist to delve deeper into drug culture. Any hopes for a reunion were apparently shuttered when Staley died in 2002 of a drug overdose.
Alice in Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell was honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan award for his contributions to the MusiCares MAP fund at an event on May 31. In a new video, you can hear Cantrell, former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan and more talk about their struggles with sobriety.
Contrary to the initial reports, the songs featuring late Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley from the film 'Grassroots' may not be on everyone's radar, but they are definitely not unknown. In fact, one of them was already released in the mid 1990s.
