For those of you who don't know, Alice In Chains is back with this new guy named William Duval.
I think Duval will do allright.
Noone can replace Layne Staley - trust me on that, but here is what I think:
Jerry Cantrell IS Alice in Chains. Layne was great and is irreplaceable, BUT this dude Duval has the same vocal range as Layne, and ALMOST the same
raspiness-quality. I've heard stuff of AIC live, recently, with Duval, and he hits the songs almost perfect.
I know some may reject him on principal, saying that noone could or SHOULD replace Layne.
I feel some of you on that, but the show must go on. I would rather hear someone try to fill in his shoes than AIC just quit alltogether, no?
Damn, I can not wait until September. It's going to be a milestone, and I am stoked!
