Alice In Chains Shy Away From Playing Unreleased Songs Live
"In the old days — if you start out with 'in the old days,' you're totally an old f**k — you were able to play a lot more stuff live," Cantrell tells Spin. "But with the advent of the Internet and sharing and sh*t going everywhere, you can't do that anymore.
"We really haven't been playing anything off the new record that's not out yet. We've been playing 'Hollow' and 'Stone', and now that it's going to be released, we're thinking about whipping out 'Phantom Limb' and maybe a few more.
"We used to play new stuff all of the time. When we were touring 'Facelift', we probably played half of 'Dirt' on the end of that tour. It's a cool thing to be able to do, but you hardly have any control over your own music. We'd rather wait until you get the best quality version of what we created before you start getting sh*tty iPhone versions from crappy gigs." more on this story
