Alice in Chains without DEAD lead singer Layne Staley is not really Alice in Chains.

Yes... but.... I still think it would be a good show... and my closest attempt at seeing the rest of the band...

I saw them at Lollapalooza in 92 or 93, but they were overshadowed by a brilliant performance by Primus and an upstart band called Rage Against the Machine...

Jerry Cantrell did a lot of the vocals for their songs as well. Their two voices sounded a lot alike too. I don't think they'll miss a beat playing their old songs. That said, RIP Lynn Staley. Shame he couldn't find that peace here on earth.

T00L blew up that year. Sober was born. And everyone forgot about Green Jelly (o) Little Pig song that Maynard did vocals on.

I kind of agree, but as long as Jerry Cantrell is still there, they will still be close to what they were with Layne. After all, Jerry was the senior songwriter, and about half the time was the lead singer. Losing Jerry would be a bigger blow to the AIC sound and feel than losing Layne Staley, imo.

AiC's brilliance was in the vocal harmonies between Cantrell and Staley. They won't be able to recapture that haunting, dark quality with any new vocalist they bring in.

Layne Staley's voice and talent weren't particularly unique, and there are a ton of vocalists who have an ability that is on a par with his, and who have similar sounding voices. True, they can't recapture it completely, but I think they could still get close to it so that only the most discerning listeners would notice much difference. As I said, Jerry was pretty much the brains behind most of their work, and it was his creativity that was mostly responsible for those brilliant harmonies and choral leads.

I saw that they're gonna be in Sioux Falls, which is still a bit far for me. If they were gonna be within 4 hrs, I would definately go. Jerry's voice is awesome, and IMO, is the core sound they always had, he and Layne's voices were eerily similar. AiC and Soundgarden were definately my favorite bands to come out of Seattle. I still appreciated the other bands, but those two really transcended the whole grunge movement, IMO. BTW, if any of you did that genre, 2 bands that were a big part of the movement but weren't MTV darlings are The Screaming Trees and Mudhoney. Check 'em out.

It's not about sounding LIKE AiC.

It's about BEING AiC.

Without Staley, they might as well be Skid Row, touring trailer parks without Sebastian Bach.
