    Sounds great! Congrats Jerry.

    I know it’s Jerry’s night, but wouldn’t it be cool if Lanegan sang Long Gone Day? Although there’s no getting around the fact that when Layne comes in on the Mad Season version, it’s so thrilling and fantastic, what a song, what a voice!

    @ Dackotablue- That is an awesome idea, that song is amazing!!

    Mark AND Alice? Oh my god- I would die. It would be too awesome to handle.

    Im not trying to toot Jerrys horn but it is about time he got some recognition for what has been sadly overlooked by the mainstream(like it matters what they think). Those who have taste in music and the art have no problem commending Jerry for his talent. I find it amusing as shit when a “Top 50″ or Top 100″ guitarists of all time list comes out and he is nowhere to be found….What a crock of shit. How can Kurt Cobain be like in the top 15? Nothing against Kurt but he don’t even hold a candle to Jerry. Dirt for instance is just mind blowing and besides Slash (Im sure there are a couple more) and dude from white stripes….nothing really but garbage!!! You earned it Mr. Cantrell!!!!

    hope they do a few songs together, imo Mark is the only one who can “replace” Layne… (btw they did rooster with Mark some time ago, u can check it on youtube)

    Fuck it!! I’m moving to L.A. I hate that place but there is so much cool shit going on there.

  • Hollywood makes me sick

    Just wondering, does anyone know what this award is for and why Jerry’s being nominated? This guy deserves an actual music award. I just think there’s so many bogus who’s who of Hollywood giving each other awards. Does any of this money actually make it to the community? It’s a documented fact that California has the highest homeless population tied with Hawaii. But anyway, I’m glad Jerry’s getting the recognition he finally deserves.
