Alice in Chains
mastermind Jerry Cantrell
recently shared an interesting info that former Stone Temple Pilots
singer Scott Weiland
was once interested in fronting the band.
Chatting with Mohr Stories
(via Alternative Nation
), the guitarist didn't want to reveal at which point was Weiland interested in joining the AiC fold, but did confirm the vocalist's definite interest."I got a call from Weiland
[laughs]. There was a discussion from his end I think about
[singing for Alice in Chains],"
During the rest of the chat, Cantrell pointed out that it only took one audition for William DuVall
to get the gig. Weiland was one of the numerous guest AiC vocalists during their first few comeback years back in mid 2000's. Check out his 2007 performance of "Angry Chair
In related news, Cantrell has shown interest to collaborate with Soundgarden
's Chris Cornell
. According to the same source, the guitarist is interested in hitting the studio with Chris for the first time since "Right Turn
" track off 1992's "Sap
." Whether or not the collaboration will take place yet remains to be seen.
But back to Weiland, do you think Scott would make a better AiC singer than DuVall? Let us know in the comments.
