There will never be another Layne....but I think we need to look at it from Jerry Cantrell's point of view-

I watched a clip of DuVall doing "Nutshell" on YouTube. Didn't sound bad. I'm glad Cantrell and (remaining) crew are going to keep doing what they love and make music. I do, however, wish they'd have given themselves a new name. They will never really be AiC without Layne because he and Cantrell together WERE AiC. That aside though, it seems like calling themselves that is setting themselves up for a lot more backlash than they would get if they went by a new name and simply played some old AiC covers.

Sidenote: Kind of funny to see a replacement sing the line, "If I can't be my own, I feel better dead."

It's a decent version though I agree.

As for William Duvall, I don't think you could entirely call the band with him Alice In Chains. The Layne Staley Jerry Cantrell combo WAS Alice In Chains. Layne Staley's unique vocals + Jerry Cantrell's guitar genius and knack for song writing is what made them so great and different. I wouldn't mind going to see Duvall but i wouldn't say I went and saw an Alice in Chains concert, I would say I saw Jerry Cantrell and William Duvall's band perform some AIC songs.
