“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.
