Alice In Chains Talks About Recent Reunion, Touring Together Again

AOL Music reports: If fans didn't know what to expect when the three remaining members of Alice in Chains decided to reunite with a new singer, William Duvall, they weren't the only ones.

"We spent half our lives together and created all this music, so just getting back in touch with it is a big thing, man," says guitarist Jerry Cantrell, speaking to AOL Music backstage at KROQ's recent Inland Invasion show. "When you look back, you realize how much fun we actually had."

"Once we got rolling it was just really emotional for me, doing this without our brother Layne [Staley, late frontman]," adds bassist Mike Inez.

The band also had to deal with questions about where they fit in, music-wise, a decade later, but Inez says the group is finding its way: "I think we've kind of found some sort of neutral buoyancy. We're floating in the ocean. It just feels good. It feels more natural."

Drummer Sean Kinney says the band had to deal with a lot of doubters at first. "Nobody knew what would happen, 'cause some people are just stupid. They can't let go of the past, and they believe things have to be a certain way. I hear a lot of people tell me, 'This can't work, and it shouldn't be.'"

But Kinney says after seeing the show some fans have admitted their mistake. "By the third song, they're singing along. And then they feel the need to hunt you down and tell you they were wrong."
