Last week, Jerry Cantrell turned 49. And as you might expect, he had a birthday party. What you might not expect is who hung out at his party. Glenn Danzig was there. So was Dane Cook.

OK, so our respect for Jerry Cantrell has just gone up even more. We already gave him props earlier today for being a thoughtful gift giver (btw, we’re not necessarily condoning anything, just sayin’), but yesterday, Alice In Chains posted the above picture on their Facebook page.

The band is playing on a mountaintop surrounded by rocks. There’s also a guy that’s got a stone on a cart. And hey, some people turn to stone. All […]

Posted by on March 26, 2013
