The next Led Zeppelin is playing somewhere and they’ll likely never make it because there’s no infrastructure for it. They’ll never get a chance. People will probably never support them long enough to let them grow into the band that could be, and that’s a sad thing, and we’re all going to pay the price for that and it’ll probably be too late before people realize it. That’s a sad thing because I love music, you love music, we all do, but we all take it for granted. It’s in the elevator. It’s everywhere. And when we do that we’re all just shooting ourselves in the head by not supporting the thing that you love. That really kind of saddens me. I want to hear that new band.

Well, he’s just a great guy. We got really lucky meeting him. Dave Grohl introduced us to him on the last record. He’s like us. He’s that stoner kid that loves rock. It really means something to him. It’s not about a paycheck.

And [now] it’s okay for people to go on stage and f*cking fake the songs. They don’t want the real thing, they don’t want the bad notes, they don’t want somebody who can go up there and sing their own songs, they just want somebody that can do the f*cking flashy dance moves.

It’s not like that element wasn’t there before, but now it seems like that’s all that it is. I mean, that’s not to say that there’s not some great bands out there doing really good music, but the ratio to those other things seems off.

Alice in Chains - “Stone”

You Ended Up Sounding Like Your Band

A shorn Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney of Alice in Chains talk with Jack Osbourne (yes, that Jack Osbourne) and Fuse about their new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, the current state of rock, touring plans, and sounding like… well, like AiC.

Alice in Chains - “Hollow”

I’m really loving the old-school groove of this new AiC tune from their as-yet unnamed fifth album due out this summer. And the video is creepy as hell.
