Alice In Chains's Jerry Cantrell Brought Deftones To Tears


(Classic Rock) Deftones drummer Abe Cunningham says the band cried tears of joy when Alice In Chains man Jerry Cantrell was recording a guest guitar solo. AIC guitarist Cantrell guests on Deftones track Phantom Bride, which features on latest album Gore. And as Cantrell recorded his part, the band were overwhelmed by his contribution.

Cunningham tells Rock 105: "We had tears of joy when he was laying it down. When he plays, you know immediately it's him, and that's a rarity. And we've grown up on him and became friends with his band over the years, toured together. And it was just a magical pairing."

The drummer says Deftones were trying to come up with a suitable guest star for the track when they decided to ask their old friend Cantrell. He adds: "We had this song. It was pretty much done. It could have been left as is, but it sort of had this big kind of a gaping hole in the end, like a gap, that could have just been or we could have filled it up with something." Read more here.
