The biggest worry going into the show, of course, was how would the band do without Staley? That factored not only into the actual vocals, but the lyrics to the new songs as well given that Staley had been the primary wordsmith for the band. In both regards, Alice in Chains exceeded any reasonable expectation.
DuVall proved to be a powerful lead vocalist and, at least as important, he worked well with Cantrell on the harmonized numbers. The latter are Alice in Chains' signature, giving the band's songs a kind of depth that is missing in most of hard rock. Plus, the new songs performed, which included "A Looking in View" and the album's title track, sounded just as heavy as the classics. The best of the new lot was "Check My Brain," the No. 1 alt rock radio smash that ranks among the band's finest numbers.
Cantrell was an absolute monster with the axe and he kept swinging harder as the night progressed. He displayed a virtuosic touch again and again, twirling through tightly coiled leads that amazed the guitar wonk lovers in attendance while not alienating the more casual listeners. He's a true electric Women Canada Goose Montebello Parka Pink Nz Sale guitar hero, yet some of his most delicious work came during the group's short acoustic set near the start of the show.
Alice in Chains which now consists of vocalist William DuVall, guitarist vocalist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney opened the show with a thundering take on "Rain When I Die" (from 1992's "Dirt") and then rarely let up on the throttle. The music was wonderfully moody and weighty, a brand of stoner rock that still provides the right kind of contact highs.
After releasing three albums, two of which topped the charts, Alice in Chains went into hibernation, while lead singer Layne Staley dealt with his well publicized problems with drug addiction. When the vocalist died in 2002, from an overdose of heroin and cocaine, most assumed that the band would never be heard from again.
Which of the great grunge rock acts had the biggest impact on today's music scene? If you answered Nirvana, Pearl Jam or Soundgarden then you're probably over the age of 18 and not listening to the same thing that millions of kids are in 2009.
The group closed the main set with the shout along favorite "Man in the Box," the 1990 "Facelift" offering that has aged much better than most grunge rock anthems, and then returned for an encore that included the "Dirt" classic "Would?" In all, it was a convincing return _ and return to form _ by this influential '90s act.
Now, Alice in Chains is back, with a new lead vocalist and its first studio CD in 14 years, and sounding like it never left.

On Monday the eve before the release of "Black Gives Way to Blue" the group performed a sold out show at the Fillmore in San Francisco. It was one of the hottest tickets of the season, with scalpers demanding hundreds of dollars for ducats and scores of people outside the venue practically begging to get in.
Alice in Chains returns for Fillmore gig
The correct answer, for better or worse, has to Alice in Chains. That Seattle band drew up the blueprint for modern heavy metal during the first half of the '90s, inspiring Godsmack, Taproot, Staind and dozens of other brooding hard rockers. Even Metallica cited Alice in Chains as a major influence on some of its more recent work.
Those left standing in the cold sure missed a good time. Nearly everything that made the band so powerful back in its heyday was still on display at the Fillmore.
Ok, so I got my glimpse during the photo shoot. The purple jersey (Not sure if ECHL does white at home or the road) has the logo with the text, as you have in the picture at the top of the page. The white jersey just has in the sun logo. No shoulder yokes or stripes, but there is a triangular and diagonal mish mash of teal, purple, and black on the sides and undersides of the arms. The paw in the sun logo is a shoulder patch on both sweaters. The white jersey looked better, in my opinion, because I do not like text on a jersey.
