    Happens to be my favorite non death/thrash metal vocalist and songwriter (Tejas, THIS is the reason why I called you the "bigger Tool fanboy" I'm a big fan of Maynard, and also compared to Cantrell's lyrics, Maynard's might be more complex and deeper, but I was an Alice In Chains fan longer than any of the bands I listen to now :p:...perhaps Testament too ). Yeah alright, Layne Staley was an awesome vocalist, but in Alice In Chains, Jerry proved to be the real songwriter.

    Also with his solo albums, the music is not that fast paced and technical but it never seems to fail in entertaining. Of course, I'll still perfer the AIC material. AIC used to one of my favorite bands before i got into heavier music, and they still are (R.I.P Layne)

    I think what made Alice In Chains stand out from the other grunge bands was- Alice In Chains was alot heavier.

    Any other Cantrell/AIC fans?

    surprisingly no replies to this thread...

    anyway......Alice in Chains and Soundgarden have to be my fav grunge bands.

    I lurrveeee some AIC and can stand to listen to most of the other stuff
    Must be one of the few AIC fans who don't dig Dirt but love Jar of Flies/SAP and who have Unplugged in their top 10 albums. In fact its the best unplugged out there in terms of ambience, if not musical excellence.

    Yeah, I've always liked Alice In Chains. I do like Jerry's songwriting, however I think Layne was a better vocalist. I havent really heard his solo works though...I'll try to get my hands on them.

    Tried listening to Alice In Chains in my School Days. Some songs like Would, Rooster, Killer Is Me are kinda okay but somehow never liked the band. Couldn't find anything that could take my interest. I liked Stone Temple Pilots a lot and used to Dig Pearl Jam till their Vitalogy album from when they started taking a different direction.

    I like Cantrell's guitar solos the one in 'man in the box' ... did I name it right?
    Among other AIC songs I like No Excuses, Rooster.

    jerry's solos have that brooding feel
    almost like his guitar cries
    and mike inez rocks[what a bass:referring to the acoustic bass he uses on would unplugged]
    layne's probably the best vox ever[r.i.p layne]
    my personal fav happens to be 'whale and wasp'
    sean kinney's work on the drums cant be forgotten
