Alice In Chains Members Reunite For A Good Cause
February 22, 2005

The remaining members of Alice In Chains helped raise over $100,000 for tsunami relief at a benefit concert on Friday, February 18. At the KRQI/Seattle K-Rock Tsunami Continued Care Relief Concert, guitarist/singer Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez performed together for the first time since 1996. A variety of guest vocalists sat in with the band performing AIC classics and paying tribute to their late singer, Layne Staley.

The band's first set was all-acoustic, with Pat Lachman of Damageplan taking the mic most of the time on tunes such as "No Excuses." However, Heart's Ann Wilson took the lead on "Brother." The second, plugged-in set was when the surprise guests took control. Puddle Of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin made a surprise appearance, joining Lachman for "Again," then taking over on "Would?" and "Angry Chair." However, the biggest surprise of the night came with the arrival of Tool/A Perfect Circle singer Maynard James Keenan. Keenan sang lead on "Man In The Box" and "Them Bones." The evening closed out with all four guest vocalists taking turns on a haunting rendition of "Rooster."

The ex-AIC members were not the only performers at the charity show, as Ann Wilson and her sister Nancy performed a set of their own, as did Sir Mix-A-Lot, The Supersuckers and Brad/Satchel singer Shawn Smith. Ex-Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic served as the emcee for the evening.
