Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell Reveals Who Needs To Enter Rock Hall of Fame In 2019


Alice In Chains singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell was recently interviewed by SiriusXM’s Volume at the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He first discussed Heart. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

“We’ve done a lot of stuff together. I think the first thing that we probably did together is they sang on Sap with us on ‘Brother.’ We’ve done a ton of stuff with each other, long friendship and lifelong friends, and we’ve had the opportunity to get to play with each other for various reasons over the years.”

“Seattle is a pretty small city. It feels even smaller when you’re a person living in it, so to have them actually come from where we’re from made it like, man, if they did it, maybe I could do it. Having Hendrix from there as well, Queensryche was another big band that was very influential in the area, but Heart, being with them for their induction a few years ago and being able to actually perform with the original band was a dream of mine, and Ann was kind enough to invite me to do that.

I was really honored to be there, just from a fan standpoint, and also as a friend, and a fellow artist. It was kind of a full circle moment for me, even though it was nothing to do with me, I just got to be there and saw what surrounded them, and see them be honored for their work, which is deservingly so.”

He was later asked what band he wants to see go into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next.

“Iron Maiden. I’d go Priest too, but Iron Maiden.”
