Bring him back in chains

Just a quick one today. My latest project, the Prairie Pedal for Myeloma Canada has been consuming much of my time. I'm cycling across central Canada to raise money for Myelomic cancer research. If you're interested to learn more, please go check out the site.

Last year, I was blown away by the reunion of bands such as Blind Melon. However, apparently, reuniting a band with a former OD'd singer is just the 'in' thing to do this year. As such, Seattle grunge rockers Alice in Chains, are bringing it back. Joining forces with Willian DuVall of Comes with the Fall, the crew has been in the studio recording a new release which is due for the fall.

I won't even bother making jokes about pissing on Layne's grave, or saying how this unholy reunion is going to suck (after being proved wrong with Blind Melon). However, for the time being, I'll continue to enjoy Mr. Stanley on the mic.

I'm off to Morocco for a wedding, so the blog will be on vacation until I return, June 22.
