Alice in Chains Photoshoot (Knebworth, 2009)
*drowned in tears*
It’s cool to stick out like a sore thumb [Laughs]. We straddle a lot of different lines. Nobody has ever known what to do with this band ever. When the band came out, there was no fucking grunge or any of this shit. They invented it! They’d be like, “You’re metal, alterna-metal, rock-alterna, whatever!” They never knew what the fuck to call us.
We’re just a rock band. We’ve got our own sound, and that’s all that matters. That’s the most important thing.
- Sean Kinney (via covermewithdirt)
“It’s always funny when I hear the odd comment, when someone says ‘It’s weird, man. They sound like Alice.’ Well, we are Alice, dick. What are we supposed to sound like? Are we supposed to sound like Kansas? We were all necessary to the band and nobody knows more of what we went through and what we lost. But we didn’t lose sight of what we are. And we aren’t any different. We carry all those experiences: the bad, the good, and the style, with us, and into the future. That’s how we’ve made the transition.”

I don’t know how anyone could hate Alice in Chains.
Those harmonies; the crunching riffs; the precise drumming; the stories in the songs.
No pretension or bullshit, just hard rock music with moments of beauty and reflection inbetween.
i also still saw jerry as the “Frontman” even when layne was in the band though
please don’t throw things at me.
he wrote like most of the music and a good portion of the lyrics
please i’m too young to die
it’s just that i don’t associate AIC with JUST layne. aic is still aic with will to me, especially with jerry still there, that’s why i’m not bothered by a new lineup whatsoever/at all
