WHAT THE WHAT? ALICE IN CHAINS PLAYING WITH STP?
Still, as I wrote about a while back in a post called "Sour Boy," I mentioned that when STP first hit the national scene, I heard people saying they ripped off Pearl Jam. I saw their first video for "Sex Type Thing," and didn't get the comparassion. They were like an Alice In Chains tribute band. Then I saw "Plush" and understood why people thought they were ripping off PJ.
I feel bad hating on them. Frontman Weiland has some serious issues. I just read an interview with him in the new Rolling Stone. He mentioned that he still drinks sometimes. That's just sad.
Anyway, AIC are doing a much cooler tour later this year, with Mastodon opening. I definitely want to catch that show.
