I coulndnt believe the harmonies on Sap, Jar of flies, and the acoustics and harmonies of Temple of the dog cd. Right turn! Say hello to heaven! my god the power in the notes and gentle ballads they are. Then when I got the unbelievable pleasure of listening to jerry Cantrells " satisfied " and " solitude " jesus christ!!!!!! both his solo albums are dope. Spent 1000 hours learning the tabs for them and of "DAYS OF THE NEW" three cd's Travis meeks my god is an acoustical genious as well. Have a song wrote that is awsome in the likes of down in a hole etc. but will never be able to capture the triple harmonies of alice in chains. WISH I COULD GIVE IT TO Jerry Cantrell as a gift for the decades of brillance in his music. Scott form Detroit

I lived Led Zeppelin and ac/dc when I was 10. My world exploded with the debut Irom Maiden album ( strange world ) when i first heard number of the beast (loud with vincent prices into word )Oh my god i was reborn and had a purpose. I spent 8-10 hours a day playing guitar and solos. Was a legand to to my friends and parties playing eruption, Randy rhodes and marty Freedmon ( megadeth) that shit his hard man! Looking back the damn Hair bands ruined it for me to play out at the clubs in the late 80's and early 90's Posers looking and moving like chicks!!!!! But........ What a sucker punch from left field with the new "grunge" We Die young was the First Fav! man o man drop d tuning was the shit!

Thats insane!! My wife and some longtime old friends used to rip on me for listening to Elton John," What a master of feeling " in his singing and play. Yellow brick road, and " bennie and the Jets- Loved to redo that like a type o negative vocal sound!
