    I just learned River of Deceit! Great Song. I know this has nothing to do with Jerry but this song was mentioned in a previous thread.

    I disagree about the unplugged show being
    'one of the best shows in history' (that's kind of naive)

    The quote was...one of the three or four best in the show's history.

    And, in that regard, I think the original poster was certainly correct. Or, at the very least, it's certainly one of my three or four favorite MTV Unplugged performances--ahead of Pearl Jam's for sure.

    Semantics . . . it was paraphrased.
    "well.. imho alice in chains unplugged is one of the three or four best in the show's history"
    ...... .... ..... .. ...... ......... .. "one of the ..... .. .... best shows in history"
    No difference - and I (just like you) have the right to disagree - Chill Out.

    Was pretty sure the difference was that "one of the best in the show's history" indicated that it was the best performance on that program...whereas the claim "one of the best shows in history" would encompass every live musical performance ever.

    Seemed the original poster was implying the former while you were implying the latter--which would be two very different things.

    As well, didn't mean for that to sound hostile, just clearing up what seems to be a misunderstanding. No offense meant.

    Yes, "shows" referring to MTV Unplugged . . . as I said, it's semantics.
    Personally, I think the Eric Clapton unplugged was probably the best (and I don't even like Clapton).

    id be hard pressed to choose between nirvana and alice in chains as the best unplugged performance

    pearl jam could have been up there but their setlist wasn't up to scratch. should have ditched songs like evenflow and jeremy and put on songs like footsteps, wash, release. black porch and oceans were absolutely spectacular though

    I would seriously break down and cry. No joke.
    Believe me, when I was growin up, I thought the worst thing you could turn out to be was normal, So I say freaks in the most complementary way. Here's a song by a fellow freak - E.V

    Agree!
  • Alice in Chains is pretty much my favorite band, so you can bet I love Jerry's guitar. He's also got a really good voice, but Layne's was unique and awesome. I still can't wrap my mind around how original Jerry's guitar work is. And if any of you are looking for a good laugh, look at the "For the Ladies" thread on the Alice in Chains forum. They'll show you a side of Jerry you probably never thought of if you're straight and male.
  • great album. . .love that song on the cable guy soundtrack as well. . .his second album was a little disappointing to me


    See, for me it's the other way around. I was more disappointed with Boggy Depot and more blown away with Degredation Trip Vols. 1&2.

    Good song. Ruined for me by over-production. 

    I really like Jerry's music, he's a great guitarist, songwriter and vocal talent. Just wish he would strip things down in the studio a little more.

    This has been a trend since BGWTB and is getting progressively worse. DPDH was brick-walled all to hell too.

    I love Boggy Dept.  The issued degradation trip (just the single album version) on vinyl a few months back, and I put it on.  It's decent but all it made me do was go back and put on Boggy Depot.   I love that album.   Hopefully it gets a vinyl reissue.

    I was lucky enough to see three solo shows.  Once in '98 opening for Metallica, then once around 2001.  We had tickets for AC/DC and then cantrell had a bar show the same time.  We committed the ultimate sin and bailed for AC/DC's encore.  We missed the first few songs of Cantrell's set but walked in while they were playing Man in the Box.    William Duvall was already doing vocals for his solo shows at that point (and I think Robert Trujillo from Metallica was on Bass).   Then we saw one more show at the Commodore a few years after that.

    They were all pretty good shows.  I think it's why I don't mind Duvall on vocals.  For me they kind of seguewayed him in there because he was doing vocals for the solo stuff first.

    Duvall is a great fit with Jerry and AIC. I like that he has his own style and isn't trying to sound like Layne. He does the AIC catalog justice while still having a unique voice.
