In a new inteview with Sofa King Cool, PUDDLE OF MUDD frontman Wes Scantlin was asked if he would consider covering ALICE IN CHAINS song.
“In my life, of course,” he responded. “That’s a good idea, you’re coming up with a lot of good ideas. I did a lot of different ALICE IN CHAINS songs in my career and they’re amazing. They taught me, I learned how to sing listening to Sap, Dirt, Jar of Flies, every record that they ever did. Jerry [Cantrell] and the boys are still writing some pretty darn good music.”
After interviewer noted that ALICE IN CHAINS still put on a good, show, Wes said: “It’s definitely thick. God bless Chris Cornell, and Chester too. Shoot, man, I was with my friend a couple of days ago, and I was like, ‘Oh, we’re listening to people that have died.’ It just makes me feel weird.”
Asked if “that make you realize your own mortality,” he responded: “Well, somebody told me that I could out party everybody, so basically, I already have. I’m like a little cockroach, I’m a very hard person to kill. So I’ll keep doing that, keep writing music, and get a little booty from time to time.”
In April 2020, Wes Scantlin‘s acoustic cover of NIRVANA‘s “About A Girl” went viral, but not for being any good.
