Alice In Chains Fans Conflicted Over New Singer

Robert Morast of South Dakota's Argus Leader reports that ALICE IN CHAINS sold a couple thousand tickets or so in advance for the show Saturday night (August 12) at the Sioux Empire Fair that was to feature COMES WITH THE FALL singer William DuVall with the surviving AIC members — Jerry Cantrell, Mike Inez and Sean Kinney. The support is kind of surprising, considering that, as a rule, rock fans hate change. That's why, even among AIC's thirsty admirers, there's some hesitation to embrace ALICE IN CHAINS 2.0.

"I think initially I was a little bit shocked. Seeing them tour without Layne [Staley] was a little odd at first," says Barry Van Beek, a musician and longtime ALICE IN CHAINS fan from Rock Valley, Iowa. "But now, I think, I've come to terms with it and am pretty excited about it."

Van Beek says his acceptance of this new AIC came through reading how guitarist Jerry Cantrell said this tour is so the band can play the songs one more time.

Fans appreciate the return. But there still are some conflicting emotions.

"I know I'll stand there in awe. I'll also be quite saddened. To hear those songs sung by somebody else will be kind of strange," Van Beek says.

It's a common concern.

"There have been a few people who have said to me personally, 'it's not the same guy, it's not the same thing,' " says Matt Adamski, director of the Sioux Empire Fair. "But you know, it's still going to be a good show. The core group is there. The music is there."

Sebastian Bach Gets Rush Singing With AIC

Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has posted the following message on his official web site:

"What an incredible rush it was to sing with ALICE IN CHAINS in Japan twice last month. Jerry Cantrell had the idea for me to join the band for 'Man In The Box' in Osaka at Udo Music Festival, and being a huge fan of Layne Staley and ALICE IN CHAINS I jumped at the chance to sing one of my favorite tracks of the '90s live with probably the best band of the '90s . We had such a good time jamming in Osaka that we did it again the next day at Mt. Fuji. Thanks to Jerry and the rest of the band and hopefully I will sing again with ALICE IN CHAINS sometime in the future!"

Bach also commented on his recently announce dates in China and Australia:

"I am totally excited to play Beijing, China for the first time in my career. The international rock community is stronger than ever and for us to play China is a total honour. It's always cool to play somewhere you never have before and we look forward to rocking out in China this September! I also cannot wait to return to Australia. The last time I played there was in 1993 supporting GUNS N' ROSES and they were some of the biggest shows I have ever played. It's gonna be killer to bring the new band Down Under!"

Alice In Chains Confirm Japanese Tour Dates

The reunited ALICE IN CHAINS are scheduled to take part in one of Japan's biggest music festivals — the Udo Music Festival. Set over two days in two different locations, the Udo Music Festival features dozens of acts and about 50,000 concert-goers. And for the first time ever, AIC will be part of the madness. On July 22, the band will play at the Fuji International Speedway and then on July 23 they will perform at the Festival's other location, the Osaka Izumi Otsu Phoenix.

As previously reported, ALICE IN CHAINS have confirmed the five dates and cities for its U.S. mini-tour next month, beginning on May 18 in Los Angeles and ending on the 23 in New York City. The shows will all take place in either small clubs or theatres. These gigs and a previously announced date at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August are the only announced North American shows for the reunited group so far, with European festival dates on tap for June and July. Guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney will be joined on vocals by COMES WITH THE FALL frontman William DuVall. However, surprise guest vocalists and musicians are expected to show up at each of the five U.S. dates, with bassist Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) already rumored to be coming along as a second guitarist.

It's been 10 years since the last official performance by ALICE IN CHAINS before the 2002 death of singer Layne Staley, and Mike Inez told Launch Radio Networks that the group's fans have waited long enough for them to play again. "Not to put a time limit on it, but if it was 10 years, you know, I think we needed that time to put some space in between it," he said. "It just feels right, and we're coming from a pure spot, and it's just more of a celebration of our music we created. Just one more time around the world. We're gonna bring it to the people and everyone's invited."

The surviving members of the band played together for the first time since 1996 at a Seattle tsunami benefit in February of 2005. They regrouped again in March for a taping of the VH1 Classic series "Decades Rock Live!", at which plans for more touring and a possible new album were first revealed.

Here are the confirmed upcoming ALICE IN CHAINS shows: More...

According to Rolling Stone magazine, VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan might go on tour this summer with the reunited ALICE IN CHAINS as the band's second guitarist.

ALICE IN CHAINS wil kick off their first tour in a decade on May 18 in Los Angeles and continue with a series of surprise U.S. club shows before the band head over to Europe.

"Everybody has disappointments in life, and we certainly had ours," said guitarist Jerry Cantrell, now reunited with bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney. "I just want to continue living life. We're having a great time."

ALICE IN CHAINS have confirmed that COMES WITH THE FALL vocalist/guitarist William DuVall will sing lead vocals for the group on their upcoming run, along with a few "special guests."

Remembering Alice In Chains' Layne Staley

Launch Radio Networks reports: ALICE IN CHAINS vocalist Layne Staley died four years ago today (April 5), at the end of a long and tragic descent into heroin addiction that ultimately sidelined his career and his band after three studio albums, an acoustic live disc and two EPs. The 34-year-old singer had all but disappeared from public view during the last few years of his life. His body was not found in his Seattle home until April 20, 2002, two weeks after the date on which it was ultimately determined that he died.

Staley was born in Kirkland, Washington on August 22, 1967 and began playing drums at the age of 12. He soon switched to singing and met guitarist Jerry Cantrell in 1987. The pair formed ALICE IN CHAINS, which started out as a glam band but eventually became one of Seattle's biggest "grunge" exports.

Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney recently reunited to appear at a taping of the VH1 Classic series "Decades Rock Live!" and plan to tour this summer with guest vocalists on the mic. Inez told Launch that the surviving members of the band still feel Staley's presence onstage with them. "He's in our hearts and we're carrying him with us every place we're gonna be playing this year," he said. "If anything we've got an angel looking out for us, you know, and of course, he's crazy."

New Alice In Chains Photos Posted Online

Several new photos of ALICE IN CHAINS members Jerry Cantrell (guitar) Mike Inez (bass) and Sean Kinney (drums) rehearsing for their upcoming appearance at the taping of an episode of VH1 Classic's "Decades Rock Live!" have been posted online at Cantrell's official web site.

As previously reported, COMES WITH THE FALL vocalist/guitarist and member of Jerry Cantrell's touring band William DuVall has been tapped to sing lead vocals with ALICE IN CHAINS at "Decades Rock Live!", a tribute to HEART that will take place March 10 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. It is not presently clear if DuVall will be joining the group on any of the other dates that are currently being scheduled.

In a recent interview with MTV.com, Cantrell confirmed that "there will be some ALICE IN CHAINS shows this year — that's a fact." At this point, the guitarist said, all he can really say is that the band is active, and that the remaining members of ALICE will be taking the stage this summer to perform songs from the band's catalog.

"We're making it up as we go along," Cantrell explained to MTV.com. "It's what we always did in the past. We're writing the book as we live it. We feel confident that we will have a good time and that it's something that will live up to the same level. It's an exploratory thing, and we're just having fun with it. We'd like to go out and play for the people that supported us and love the music as much as we have all these years. We want to celebrate what we did and the memory of our friend." [Referring to late ALICE frontman Layne Staley, who died in April 2002 from a mixture of heroin and cocaine.]

Just For Fun

Antimusic.com Has Fun With Ozzfest Rumors

With all the rumors going around about the bands on Ozzfest, Antimusic.com thought it would be fun to look at some of the latest rumors:

Guns N' Roses - We now know that Axl and company are making the rounds at European festivals this Spring but will they headline Ozzfest? It could happen but then again they could easily sellout the same venues on their own and keep all the cash instead of sharing with Sharon.

AC/DC - Given that Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, two bands that do well on their own, have done the tour in the past it's not too crazy to think of AC/DC heading the fest but again they might be better off on their own.

Korn - Since they aren't drawing like they used to on their own this might make be a good fit.

Alice in Chains - Judas Priest used Ozzfest for their comeback but a Layne-less AIC might not attract enough $$ for Sharon.

System of a Down - Given how much they love greedy capitalist like Sharon, who knows?

Body Count - Ice T supposedly told a radio DJ that they are doing it. Would be kind of cool to have a credible rap rock band on the tour for a change.

Tool - would be cool but they are supposed to have some conflicting summer gigs already in the can.

Metallica - management killed this rumor. Maybe they will team up with Guns N Roses again and do stadiums? Hey we can start rumors too, just look at the next section!

Since rumors are so fun, we're gonna start our own. Sharon wants to expand Ozzfest's reach and wants to sell as many tickets as possible so what about these bookings? Backstreet Boys, 50 Cent and Britney Spears. Think it's a stretch? Sharon did put Crazy Town on the main stage one year and let's not forget about Linkin Park and Adema.

Alice In Chains Reuniting For Summer Shows

MTV.com reports that the surviving members of Alice In Chains will be reuniting for a number of gigs this summer, and a possible North American tour, and are seeking a vocalist for those gigs and possibly for recording future material with the band either under their name or a new band name.

In the words of Jerry Cantrell, "There will be some Alice in Chains shows this year — that's a fact." There may even be a new record from the grunge rockers, who've been idle for close to 10 years. At this point, the guitarist said, all he can really say is that the band is active, and that the remaining members of Alice — himself, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney — will be taking the stage this summer to perform songs from the band's catalog.

"We're making it up as we go along," Cantrell explained. "It's what we always did in the past. We're writing the book as we live it. We feel confident that we will have a good time and that it's something that will live up to the same level. It's an exploratory thing, and we're just having fun with it. We'd like to go out and play for the people that supported us and love the music as much as we have all these years. We want to celebrate what we did and the memory of our friend."

Cantrell of course refers to Layne Staley, the late Alice In Chains frontman, who died in April 2002 from a mixture of heroin and cocaine at 34 years old.

"We have played with some [singers] who can actually bring it and add their own thing to it without being a Layne clone," Cantrell explained, adding that the three remaining Alice In Chains members will be meeting with several would-be Staley proxies in the coming months, to front the group at European festival gigs. Alice in Chains have been listed as one of the acts performing at Austria's NovaRock Festival in June, but the guitarist said nothing's been confirmed yet.

Kinney said the band hopes to play several North American dates this summer. Cantrell, Kinney and Inez started jamming together late last year, and the reunion will get into full swing March 10, when the reunited Alice in Chains perform at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, as part of VH1 Classic's "Decades Rock Live" homage to Heart. Former Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro, Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan, "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood, Rufus Wainwright and Gretchen Wilson are also set to appear. Cantrell promised a host of other special guests during the show, but he wouldn't give names.

The band will perform with Comes With the Fall frontman William DuVall — a member of Cantrell's touring band. DuVall could, theoretically, be part of the Alice in Chains fold come this summer. "We've done some rehearsing with Will and we're having a lot of fun with him," Cantrell said. "But we're still in the beginning stages where we're trying to figure out what we want to do. He could cut it, without a doubt — but we haven't made a final decision on that yet."

Kinney continued, "I don't see continuing as Alice and replacing somebody. ... We're not trying to replace Layne. We want to play these songs one more time, and if it seems like the right thing to do, it'll happen. I don't know how long it will go or where it will take us. It's kind of a tribute to Layne and our fans, the people who love these songs. It's not some 'I'm broke and I need the money' situation. We love playing together."

Kinney said Alice in Chains had been approached by the producers of "Rock Star" for the reality show's second season. They turned the offer down.

Cantrell: 'You Can't Replace A Guy Like Layne'

Former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently spoke to MTV.com about his upcoming solo album, which he expects to complete by the fall.

"I've spent the last year and a half in writing mode, compiling a lot of material, writing with a lot of different people," Cantrell told MTV.com. "I've worked with some great songwriters, and I've just been stockpiling my warheads, so to speak, until it's time to do a record. And it's getting pretty close to that time. I've been just gearing up for the next phase of my career, whether that's my third solo record or, of course, there's a possibility it may be a new band as well. I'm just sussing that out for myself. CARDBOARD VAMPYRES [the 'covers' band featuring Cantrell and ex-THE CULT guitarist Billy Duffy], is something we do for a blast."

Cantrell's been working with several high-profile musicians, including METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, ex-JANE'S ADDICTION bassist Chris Wyse, ex-JANE'S ADDICTION drummer Stephen Perkins, ALICE IN CHAINS' Sean Kinney and Mike Inez, producer Marti Frederiksen (MICK JAGGER, AEROSMITH) and FAITH NO MORE's Mike Bordin, who played drums on Cantrell's most recent disc, 2002's "Degradation Trip".
