Alice In Chains Live at Madison Square Garden

Paul "Whitey" Renstrom is a heavy metal bass player gone roots rocker with the band, The Tall Weeds. He has been writing music for decades and gets out to some great shows. Here is what he had to say about Alice In Chains, live:

Alice In Chains is my favorite band that came out of Seattle during the grunge era. The vocal harmonies and driving guitar just blow me away.

I first saw Alice In Chains in '91. They opened a show for Anthrax, Megadeath, and Slayer. I really didn't like them at first, but got into them later that year. Their singer died of a drug overdose in the early 2000s. After years of solo stuff and other gigs they got back together with new singer, William Duvall and released one of the best albums of the year,  Black Gives Way To Blue ...The Garden Show. This was the first big headlining show for them and what a better place to run it then Madison Square Garden.
