Scott Weiland Wanted to Sing in Alice in Chains, Jerry Cantrell Explains
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]," Jerry said.

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" below.

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.
