Jerry Cantrell is in full swing on the road, currently on tour with Nickelback on the 2002 Jim Beam Road To The Rackhouse tour. Tonight's show, LA - the Hollywood Palladium. Tomorrow night, it's the desert plains of Mesa, Arizona. Earlier this month it was the Key Arena in Seattle, WA - a bit of a homecoming for Jerry, absolutely an emotional show. Ann and Nancy Wilson joined Jerry on stage for the singing of the Alice In Chains track "Brother", a song they dedicated to Layne Staley. "It was pretty amazing," tells Jerry. Set lists on the road have been consisting of mostly new tracks from Degradation Trip, along with a couple songs from Jerry's Boggy Depot release and of course a couple Alice tracks.
