Jerry Cantrell: 'I Was Surprised to See Nirvana Get Into Rock Hall Before Pearl Jam'
Alice in Chains mastermind Jerry Cantrell was recently asked to comment on Nirvana's Rock Hall induction, noting how he expected to see Pearl Jam receive the honor first.

"I was surprised to see them go in before Pearl Jam," Jerry told Cleveland.com. "They went in for 'Bleach,' which wasn't a big record 'till 'Nevermind' became a big record.'"

However, the guitarist added that the band still definitely deserved to be inducted. "It's well-deserved," he noted. "I loved those guys."

Further discussing the matter, Cantrell added, "If even one of our groups was considered and inducted, it says a lot for them and, associatively, about our whole city," noting that "it'd be nice, I guess" to see AiC take residence in the prestigious institution.

Switching the subject to current Alice in Chains affairs and the band's musical approach since the passing of Layne Staley, the guitarist stated, "The way we go about putting any album out hasn't changed. We're not making something tailored to what fans reacted to. That doesn't into being with this band. We're not really interested in repeating ourselves. Each record is different from each other."
