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, Rovi

Omg...I have listen to jerry from the beginning phenomenal doesn't describe him..and he and Layne together..ou t of this effin world. AIC forever:)
Cantrell was way more than half.
In the end we are what we pretend to be
Chido. Jerry.....de s d e Monterrey. Mexico
Jerry Cantrell has soul everybody forgets he is half of the sound he and Layne developed I consider the past two Alice in Chains records to be his version of AIC not the same but still them
a guitar legend in my eyes and musical genious
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
Absolutely love this album, Jerry kicks so much a**. I still wish he had his hair though.
Very talented guy right hurr
It's Jerry's b-day, he's 47 today B) Nice job man for keeping the music alive, same goes for the rest of the band. their music has helped me through a lot and i love them from the bottom of my heart; im sure that lots of other AIC fans would say the same.

dont read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of your life. tommorrow will be the best day of your life. however if you do not post this comment to at least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. now youve started reading this so dont stop. this is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works
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.
Layne and I used to sniff H off of toilet seats during shows. It was amazing!
jdparadise
His body was found dead? Good thing. George Romero makes a nice living showing us what happens when the bodies are found alive...
baxter.futur e
yes, layne was amazing, but jerry had the stones to keep it together and not die of drugs. Their harmonizing was fantasticall y epic, its too bad what happened to layne, but what happened happened and Jerry moved on and kept keeping on with the awesome. I say kudos to him
layne and jerry together in good spirits thats wat true harmony is together they were everything.
its not the same kind of music without Lance
it's spelled L A Y N E you douchenozzel s

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
Jerry is not AIC. Lanyne had the voice to make them unique. The two of them together were great.

rocks....... . . . . . !
Jerry is AIC
jerry rocks he is the best guitar player of all time i also got to hear his songs from his2 solo albums
Hey does anyone out there know if Jerry Cantrell did a song with a woman artist also. Seems like I heard it once, but then I couldn't find it again. Am I smokin' the crack pipe? lol
LOL... dang, I never knew Maynard sucked... hmmmm. guess i should delete my TOOL channel. =b
Cantrell is the sheeeet anyways. =)
just simply love jerry !
wow you can suck my ba**s those two artist have so much talent that you just sh*t on way to go jacka** and who are you to say that you looser that was to you angel of anarchy by the way what a f*g name dirtbag
Wow Angel of Anarchy, never speak about music ever again. You just trashed talked two of the most talented rock musicians of all time.
To make the statement that Cantrell and Maynard are terrible pretty much negates anything angle will ever post in Pandora from this point forward. Those two gents are just about as musically talented as humanly possible.
