New Stone Temple Pilots Singer Covering Alice In Chains Will Blow Your Mind


New Stone Temple Pilots frontman Jeff Gutt has covered a large portion of Alice In Chains’ catalog over his years as a working musician. Watch Gutt perform 23 Alice In Chains songs and Mad Season’s “River of Deceit” below.

Gutt compared his STP audition to Mark Wahlberg’s character in Rock Star in a new Rolling Stone article.

“I came in and I picked the hardest song first, which was ‘Piece of Pie.’ There’s not a lot of space to breathe in that song. But I figured, ‘If I get past this one I’ll be good.’ And one thing I remember is that the microphone was turned up really loud from the guy before me, and when I grabbed it the monitors just started screaming. It was pretty insane.”

For Gutt, it was also surreal. “I was probably 16 or 17 when Core came out,” he says, “and I just remember how Scott could cater to the song and create these characters. That blew me away. I was really studying singers at the time and Scott was at the top of the list. So walking in on that first day, it was crazy. I mean, you have dreams about things like this. I still feel a little Mark Wahlberg–ish.”
