    Just watched the "Music bank - The videos - Alice in Chains" DVD this morning!

    Hard to believe this is all from nearly 20 years ago.

    Totally.

    Sounds like Layne never got over his childhood pain and always hoped his dad would come back if he got famous. He didn't.
    Still, no pain...no pained music.
    Most credits seem to be to Layne only. He seems to have had a big influence even on Cantrells tuneage.

    Inherently the fact remains that there are hundreds of bands that wear AIC's influence on their sleeves to the point that it almost seems redundant to even mention them.

    So many bands have that influence but none of them nail it like the original did. Even a band like Godsmack that started out as a tribute to them never quite nailed it.

    I can totally see in the future having my son raiding my CD's and grabbing "Dirt" and it being the last I see of it.

    Man I agree wholeheartedly. They were awesome! I still think Jerry Cantrell has one of the best heavy guitar tones out there.

    Matter of fact HERE is an example of one of my all time favorite guitar tones and my favorite A-i-C song.
    I get weak in the knees at the sight of a vintage Fender amp!

    I never had a chance to see them but I love their music especially the vocals. I did see Jerry Cantrell with Camp Freddy here in LA and he is a monster.

    Yeah dude. I have never been one for high gain sounds as a guitarist. I DO love heavy music, but playing it is not my thing. I will say if I could have that tone I'd probably alter my style because the tone on that song is SICK!!!!!
