ALICE IN CHAINS bassist Mike Inez will be signing autographs all weekend long (January 20-21) at this year's NAMM show. This annual music industry trade show is taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California January 18-21. Please note that you need to be a member of NAMM in order to access the show. AIC guitarist Jerry Cantrell will also be spending some time at the NAMM show. You can catch him at 3:00 p.m. on January 20 at the Dean Markley both and then at 4:00 p.m. at the Kahler booth. Mike will also be joining Jerry at 3:00 p.m. at the Dean Markley booth.

ALICE IN CHAINS filmed its concert on October 31, 2006 in Providence, Rhode Island for a possible DVD release. The Halloween performance was two hours and forty minutes long, with the group playing additional songs for the filming. There's no indication yet of when the DVD could surface or what other features it might contain.

The group's most recent North American tour featured the reunited band playing a two-hour show that included an acoustic middle section as well as an eight-minute video tribute to late ALICE IN CHAINS frontman Layne Staley.

Staley died in 2002 after a long struggle with drug addiction that effectively put ALICE IN CHAINS on ice in 1996.

Drummer Sean Kinney, guitarist Jerry Cantrell and bassist Mike Inez reunited in 2005 at a tsunami benefit in Seattle before heading out this year on full European and North American tours. COMES WITH THE FALL frontman William DuVall is handling vocals.

There's no word yet on whether this configuration of the group will record any new material.
