I only have their greatest hits (was too young to catch them first time round). They are good
Yeah I like some of their songs.
Their guitarist was very talented, and came up with some neat riffs.
Definitely one of the darker bands to come out of the whole “grunge era.”
Yeah I get you on the dark side to their tunes. They are also more heavy metal like than pearl jam or nirvana
Definitely! They have some pretty sick and heavy riffs. I wonder if their guitar player played in drop D.
I love me a bit of drop d jamming!
Same here. A lot of the American, hardcore/punk bands play in drop D. It gives the songs a sort of very tough sound haha.
I have a mate who is into metal and he is very good at guitar. He experiments with non standard string set ups. Like a real fat guage for the low e.
That’s really cool! I can’t play much metal to save my life.
But I can play punk, emo, and acoustic stuff fairly well.
I am going to give my strat to my nephew. Hardly played it in years. I would prefer it gets used rather than gathering dust in my flat
I’m a fan of their new stuff. They are still a world class band without Lane Stayley.
For me they had the best name and imagery of all the grunge bands but I prefer Superunknown, Nevermind and Ten over Dirt musically.
I really admired Lane Staley’s voice.
I was sad when he died.
When Dirt hit I had already heard “man in the box” before so I was aware of Alice In Chains when they came out with “Dirt”. Rooster refers to Jerry Cantrell’s father who fought in Viet Nam or Korea I forget which…Rooster lives in southern rural Oklahoma.
I listened to their “Dirt” album constantly when I was suicidal. That was such a depressing album. But, great nonetheless.
I was a big Alice In Chains fan back in the 90s.
Do you listen to Mad Season @anon94176359? It is a supergroup of Pearl Jam with Layne Stayley. They are worth checking out if you are into that type of music.
