AIC Benefit Show: Singer Announced
Drummer Sean Kinney told Rolling Stone magazine: “When something like this happens, you want to help. I called people up here in the Northwest to see who was available and Jerry [Cantrell, guitar] and Mike [Inez, bass] were the first guys I called.”
“I’ve known Pat through the Pantera and Damageplan guys for years,” continued Jerry. “We were all down in Dallas to support the [Abbott] family [after Dimebag Darrell's death] and we actually played a couple of Alice songs at Dime’s memorial, so it made sense.”
This reformation show will mark the first time the former members of Alice In Chains have played together in almost a decade. It also throws up the possibility of a new Alice In Chains studio album.
“We’re just starting with the gig, and we’ll see what happens,” said Jerry. “But we can’t wait to get into the room together. I’ve done plenty of projects without Sean and Mike, and, as far as having that silent chemistry, nobody really compares. If the last couple of months have shown me anything, it’s that it’s still a really dangerous world we live in. You have to put one foot in front of the other and if you look too far down the trail, you’ll fall on your face.”
