Former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell debuted his "new" solo band — William Duvall (guitar, COMES WITH THE FALL), Adam Stanger (bass, COMES WITH THE FALL), plus a couple of as-yet-undisclosed session musicians — at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Mexican Meltdown on October 3-4. Jerry reportedly played a full set on both nights (including an "awesome" cover of PINK FLOYD's "Dark Side Of The Moon") and stuck around on the second night to partake in an all-star jam that featured members of SAMMY HAGAR AND THE WABORITAS, former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee, and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS skinbasher Chad Smith. Among the "blazing" highlights, according to Hagar's web site, "was an impromptu medley of THE BEATLES' 'Come Together' and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' 'Give It Away' with Chad on drums, WABORITA bassist Mona, WABORITA guitarist Vic Johnson, WABORITA Jesse Harms on keyboards, WABORITA David Lauser on percussion and Tommy on percussion. Also scorchers included Tommy sitting in for the MONTROSE hit 'Rock Candy', Sammy singing lead on the ALICE IN CHAINS hits 'Man in the Box' and 'No Excuses' and everyone on stage for some of Sammy's greatest hits including 'Shaka Doobie', 'Finish What Ya Started' and 'Best of Both Worlds'."

Stated Sammy, "This was one of absolute highlights in my career. I am a very lucky person, and man, it just doesn't get any better than this."
