Michael "Mike" Inez, the Grammy Award-winning rock musician best known for his role as the bass guitarist of ALICE IN CHAINS, took the plunge and started a whole new chapter of life — marriage. At an undisclosed location this legendary bassist had his nuptials with his bride, Sydney Kelly, on May 8, 2010.
With over 20 years of working with heavy metal, grunge and rock performances Inez's wedding was a who's-who of headbangers and rockers alike. Having deep roots in Seattle and years of headline tours, the wedding guest list was massively diverse. Rock and heavy metal legends like Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne to Ann and Nancy Wilson from of HEART were expected to be in attendance.
Taking only a short break in the "Black Gives Way to Blue" national tour; Jerry Cantrell, Sean Kinney and William DuVall toasted the newlyweds.
In January, Inez and the band ALICE IN CHAINS rocked the Grammy Awards red carpet in London Chic West End by Simon Carter. The London Chic look was so popular with the band they asked celebrity stylist Cory Savage to reach out to Simon Carter to custom-design the wedding party.
Tim Danser, VP of Bagir International, who represents Simon Carter in North America said, "We are very proud to have been chosen as the designer of choice for two milestones in Mike's life and career. We wish him and his new bride a lifetime of happiness."
Inez began his career in music by playing guitar and saxophone. Since the late 1980s, his career has consisted of the role of bass guitarist in popular hard rock bands. In addition to being a member of ALICE IN CHAINS, Inez has worked with other popular musical acts such as OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and HEART.
