It looks like Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) has been working on a new solo album. He told People TV the following about the record while on the red carpet at the MusiCares Person Of The Year tribute to Aerosmith:
“I’m working on a new record myself, so, generally, when I’m in that sort of a mode, I pretty much don’t listen to anything until I’m done, so nothing creeps in there. I did a couple of shows December 7th and 6th at The Pico Union Project in L.A. with some friends, and I got to play some of my material from my solo records. When I’m with Alice, I’m with Alice, and that takes the majority of my time. This year, we’re taking a little time off, so… If you liked any of the solo work that I did or the work with Alice, I’m sure you might like some of this stuff too.”
During his December 6 show at the Pico Union Project in Los Angeles, CA, Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) was joined onstage by Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.), Gil Sharone (ex-Marilyn Manson, etc.), James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth, etc.), and more. You can check out fan-filmed footage from the show below. Cantrell will return to the stage at the same venue tonight (December 7).

“Snuck into a shot or two in the Deadwood movie courtesy of W. Earl Brown. Standing next to Garret Dillahunt here. I am a huge fan of the show and have become good friends with Earl and Robin Weigert over the poker table and other shenanigans. I gave Ian McShane a vinyl copy of Rainier Fog that day too. Was fun to be in the background watching the professionals do their thing. Check it out cocksuckers ! @wearlbrown @robinweigert @garretdillahunt #deadwood themovie #hbo #rainierfog”
