Today is Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains birthday and that got us thinking about his legendary show at The Chance in Poughkeepsie. He was out on tour in support of his 2002 solo release Degradation Trip. His rocking set featured a nice mix of Alice In Chains classics and new material. The singer on stage that day, William Duvall, would end up joining the reformed Alice In Chains a few years later.

WRRV had a pre-show party at The Mad Hatter, now Union Tavern, and Cantrell actually stopped by! He was interviewed by our very own Gilmore and took time to sign autographs for the fans that all showed up.

Were you there?
