Alice In Chains singer talks about meeting Axl Rose

Alice In Chains singer and guitarist William DuVall says Axl Rose has “a certain magic about him” after meeting the Guns N’ Roses leader following a show last month in Chicago, IL.

"He definitely has a certain vibe and a certain magic about him,” DuVall told Seattle's KISW 99.9 before the group opened the Not In This Lifetime Tour stop at the city’s CenturyLink Field on August 12. “And it's cool, 'cause for the first bunch of shows we did with them on the stadium run, everyone was asking me in every town… I'd talk to the radio station, 'Have you met Axl? Have you met Axl? We haven't.' And I was, like, 'No, I haven't, actually, I'd like to.'

“And then finally, last show in Chicago, he had a little gathering and had some people over. I went. He was totally chill, and it was really great."

Alice In Chains opened Guns N’ Roses reunion tour arena launch dates in Las Vegas in April and then played the first five stadium shows of the summer run when it kicked off in Detroit, MI on June 23.

The Seattle group are currently on a break from a North American tour that will resume at the House Of Blues in Boston, MA on September 16.

Alice In Chains’ most recent release is 2013’s “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.”
