Alice In Chains’ publicist informed Alternative Nation a couple of weeks ago that Jerry Cantrell was ‘totally fine’ after an emergency room visit last night. Cantrell underwent a ‘minor outpatient procedure.’

Cantrell was set to perform at ‘Dimebash’, a tribute to Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell, but canceled last minute due to an emergency room visit, with Dave Grohl replacing him. Proceeds from the event were slated to benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.

Robb Flynn of Machine Head told the Lucky Strike Live Crowd the following, according to Blabbermouth: “Jerry Cantrell and I have been rehearsing this song all week. Jerry Cantrell was supposed to be with us. He went to the emergency room, unfortunately, tonight, couldn’t be here. This song’s gonna go out to him. Dave Grohl was nice enough to fill in for him.”
