Alice In Chains Don't Follow
An Awesome Song Off Of Jar Of Flies That Deserves Greater Recognition. They Should Have Done This For Unplugged.

“When Jerry wrote , “Don’t Follow” he was in a depressed state, in Ireland, missing his family and girlfriend. He demo’d it at Chris Cornell’s home studio. Chris played harmonica on it. A lot of lyrics were spur of the moment. We like to let the audience formulate their own answers. I like when people listen to the music and come up with their own ideas. But the central theme is where our heads were at, was being away for so long.”

The Nona Tapes

Release date: December 12th, 1995.

Recorded: 1995.

Length: 25 minutes and 03 seconds.

Label: Columbia Records.

Produced by: Toby “Flobee” Wright and Alice in Chains.

The Nona Tapes is a mockumentary by Alice in Chains. It is no longer for sale so it’s considered a rarity. There’s parts of it all over youtube in case you want to watch it. According to Jerry, it was Layne who came up with the idea of making it happen.

The context follows aspiring journalist Nona Weisbaum (which is played by Jerry Cantrell) on her quest to find some “Seattle rock stars” for a breakthrough story. Throughout the video, Weisbaum scours the streets of Seattle and eventually finds & interviews the members of Alice in Chains (besides Jerry Cantrell’s because of obvious reasons). Entwined between Nona’s segments are interviews revealing the lives of the band members, and interview of footage regarding the self-titled album.

The video is really odd/strange but still funny. Nona approaches with Sean Kinney, whom in his spare time spends it working as a clown, Mike Inez, saying that he attends a Hot-Dogs stand called “Hot Dogs” and Layne Staley who ends up smoking on a pile of garbage bags and drinking juice. Everything completely ironic. 

With all of this; it shows a little not so known for everyone. Their sense bizarre and acid sense of humor.

It also includes the videoclip for “Grind” and and outtake footage overdubbed with “Heaven Beside You”

I'm not sure if I have a fave, but I REALLY like the picture of Adam that was on the cover of W magazine with the caption "the New Royals." He just looks so regal and princely and I love it :3

Everyone loves the work of Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin!

Very regal and princely! Reminds me of Tom Spina talking about when Adam was on SNL in the Kylo Ren costume: 
“In terms of once he was in the costume though, there’s a really regal look that the Kylo costume has when the mask is off — and it’s that high collar and neck seal that goes way up to his jawline. And Adam’s a really tall guy too, kind of broad, and he doesn’t appear that way, necessarily…So, he gets in the costume and without the mask and hood on, he looks very regal, royal, and intense, obviously, as he kind of starts getting into character and stuff.” (x)

My fav Adam Driver photo is the one where he has super long hair and a beard, and is wearing a tux with the jacket off. I think it was a magazine cover. I also love any photo where he's super youthful and clean-shaven looking! <3

Everyone loves the work of Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin!

And yes he looks so good with facial hair and without:
