So there’s a lot of Love/Hate/Love going on about the ‘new’ AiC. And, I agree, Layne is irreplaceable.
But, I did go see this DuVall person sing with them back in pre-HRC days, and I have to say, as someone who was a hardcore AiC fan back in the day, I didn’t hate it. I think DuVall does a good job- his voice has lots of similarities to Layne, and the image thing, well, it’s nothing 2 drinks won’t solve for me. Granted, I never got to see the ‘real’ AiC…but Cantrell is a huge part of it, and he’s still there.
So the guys have been posting ‘studio’ videos. They are quite the hairy man club.
They are up to Week 9, but you can start with Week 1 here (lulz at the anti-weed ads before every single one):
Week 1 Update
FYI- the first 2 are mostly laughs…the best one is Week 6.
