Artists Celebrate Alice In Chains During Founders Award Ceremony

Alice In Chains were honored at the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture’s Founders Award on Tuesday night. The star-studded virtual ceremony featured musical tributes by the band’s friends and colleagues, including Metallica, Corey Taylor, Heart, Korn, and members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses and many more.

Korn and Metallica offered very different takes on the song “Would?,” Metallica going for an acoustic vibe while Korn went for their signature rock sound. Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan covered the Duvall-era song “Check My Brain,” while Dave Navarro teamed up with Corey Taylor and Taylor Hawkins for an all-star version of “Man In The Box.”

Another highlight of the night was Chris Cornell’s daughter Lily Cornell-Silver making her live musical debut to perform a beautiful rendition of the 2009 track “Black Gives Way To Blue.” she was introduced by her mother Susan Silver, who has been Alice In Chains’ manager since 1988 along with being Soundgarden’s manager. Fans can rewatch the whole event, which has raised $600K and counting for MoPOP, HERE.

  • “This band started 33 years ago, three and a half miles down the road in Ballard [,Seattle]…it’s a pretty amazing journey that we’re still on,” says Jerry Cantrell in a press release. “There are so many great artists and friends who have contributed shout-outs and performances — it’s been a really cool experience and William [DuVall], Sean [Kinney], Mike [Inez], and I would like to thank everybody.”
