ALICE IN CHAINS Joined By THE DOORS' Guitarist For Epic Version of "Rooster"
During Alice In Chains' performance at the Palladium in LA last night (Aug 29th), there was a very cool rock moment. Alice In Chains was joined by legendary The Doors guitarist Robby Krieger to perform the AIC classic "Rooster."
Jerry Cantrell wrote on Instagram, “Robby Krieger was kind enough to join us to close the show on Rooster at the palladium tonight. One of my musical heroes , friend and occasional golf partner…. what an honor especially in LA.”
Frontman William DuVall added, “Yes, that’s Robby Krieger of THE DOORS jamming onstage w/ us at the Hollywood Palladium tonight. And, yes, he is playing one of my @framuswarwickofficial Talisman guitars (which he told me he loved). And, no, I still can’t believe it actually happened. Robby Krieger is one of my absolute heroes – a rocker with the heart of a jazzman. He introduced Coltrane/Ravi Shankar-style improvisation to rock guitar while also being a great pop songwriter for the Doors. Robby wrote some of their biggest hits, including ‘Light My Fire,’ which was the first song he EVER wrote (talk about comin’ in hot), and ‘Love Me Two Times.’ He’s a truly great all-around musician and it was a tremendous honor to share the stage with him tonight..”
