Jerry Cantrell

Jerry Cantrell first came to prominence as a member of Alice in Chains, one of the prototypical Seattle grunge bands. With their 1990 debut Facelift, the quartet scored a surprise hit with the ultra-heavy "Man in the Box." Racking up hit albums like 1992's Dirt and 1995's self-titled release, the band rose to the top of the alterna-metal heap. Lead singer Layne Staley, however, couldn't cope with the pressure of their enormous success; he sank into substance abuse and died in 2002.

Over the course of their career, the group has issued two successful all-acoustic EPs and one unplugged album, which focused primarily on the songwriting and arranging talents of Cantrell, whom fans found out had a very strong voice to boot. With the future of the band up in the air, Cantrell appeared as a solo artist on the soundtrack for the movie The Cable Guy, contributing the track "Leave Me Alone." After AiC opened for the first Kiss reunion show in Detroit in 1996, Cantrell began work on his very first solo album. He enlisted Alice drummer Sean Kinney and a revolving series of bassists -- including Alice's Mike Inez, Les Claypool, Fishbone's Norwood Fisher and Pantera's Rex -- and set out to record Boggy Depot with producer Toby Wright, who had previously worked with Alice in Chains and the Nixons. The record was finished by the end of the year and was released in the spring of 1998 to generally positive reviews. He supported the album as Van Halen's opening act on their summer 1998 tour. A long silence followed after his touring as he helped on a few Alice in Chains releases, including a box set and a greatest hits. He stepped back into the studio to record his second album, this time for Roadrunner Records, in the fall of 2001. He worked with Ozzy Osbourne's touring band on the album, which saw him trying to avoid guest appearances despite the high profile friends he could have counted on. Right before the album was ready to drop in 2002, tragedy struck as Layne Staley's body was found dead in his apartment. The remaining members of Alice in Chains went to a vigil in a Seattle park and released a mournful statement, but the incident did not stop Cantrell from pushing forward and releasing Degradation Trip that summer. ~ Greg Prato

Cantrell is in a league of his own. I miss Layne as much as any true A I C fan, but Cantrell had to be true to the music, because thats what he does. Writes ands plays guitar as only he can. The man is one of the best in my opinion. I hope he continues with AIC and i can't wait for another solo project. NUMBER 1 FAN TO THE END.

Like I said before the dumb f**k who writes these bios doesn't know s**t! Layne and Jerry bros forever, RIP Layne

Jerry was best with Layne, he's an amazing guitarist, but together they had something you can't define with words. AIC still has Layne there in spirit, no one can replace his vocals and the feeling that went into them. But Layne's persona got the band to this point even dead. Read lots of people's comments about their shows now, they all seem to say that you can still feel him there. RIP Layne, Jerry keep the music alive.

Sounds like they have a few tainted scrotes w/ rashes itching profusely. I think they need a group hug, ready 1, 2, 3 ah all better not quit whining and go watch Sesame Street and gather some knowledge. F**k sticks yeah I said it

Amazing man. Cantrell really can make things right off the bat. Simply amazing. Not just amazing. More than amazing by far.

I hate to be off topic, but I think it's stupid that bios of dead rock sars blame "inability to cope with their tremendous success" as a cause of their demise..path e t i c that sooo many are so clueless about addiction ,even though our culture is absolutely plagued by it..shame

I completely love and admire this guy, such a musical genius. I've never seen anyone as talented as he is; as a lyricist, songwriter, guitarist and a person. He claims that he's not a role model, but he absolutely, undoubtedly is a true inspiration: for his music and for leaving the drugs behind. Credit is also due to Sean Kinney, Mike Inez, William Duvall (for stepping up to the plate despite alot of hate from some), and of course beloved Layne Staley and Mike Starr. All of them are MORE th

Listening to "Anger Rising" and realizing Jerry was and is the soul behind what Alice in Chains was. So glad he is continuing to crank out music.

His body was found dead? Good thing. George Romero makes a nice living showing us what happens when the bodies are found alive...

Jerry is just as much of AIC as Lanyne. He wrote most of the songs and lyrics. Lanyne contributed a few songs and lyrics. Don't get me wrong I think Lanyne is one of the best lead singers of all time but the true musical genious was Jerry
Report as inappropriate
Jerry is not AIC. Lanyne had the voice to make them unique. The two of them together were great.
