Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist Covers Alice In Chains “Man in the Box”


Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers/current Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro recently uploaded a video of himself covering the Alice In Chains classic “Man in the Box”.

Navarro mourned Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, Scott Weiland, and Kurt Cobain in a Billboard piece last year.

“Chris was so the antithesis of that voice in his quiet, reserved way. Which created a lot of mystique. I remember in 2003 Jane’s Addiction was on tour with Audioslave for Lollapalooza, and Chris and I were both clean from drugs and alcohol and we invited kids from treatment centers at different spots in the country to hang out backstage and just show them you can do what we do and enjoy touring and the music without being loaded. That’s what makes this so very hard to wrap my head around. This is a guy who was involved in making the world a better place for people.

I just can’t believe that all these people I came up with are gone: Scott [Weiland], Kurt [Cobain], Layne [Staley], now Chris. All my friends are dying. How is it possible?”
