Let me tell you a little something about Alice in Chains: they are LOUD. Not "Oh God, my ears are bleeding! Make it stop!" loud. More of a big, smiley "If I'm going to lose all my hearing this is the way to do it!" loud. Within minutes of taking the stage at Madison Square Garden last Friday night they managed to usurp Rage Against the Machine as the loudest musical act I've ever seen live. After the Rage concert back in 1999 my ears rang for somewhere between six and twelve hours. (I wish I could be more specific than that, but it was eleven years ago and my memory isn't what it used to be.) Alice in Chains made my ears ring for a full twenty-four hours afterward. My hearing was still muffled when I went out to dinner with my Dad the following evening.

Which is to say that the Alice in Chains show was fan-fucking-tastic! They came out with guns blazing and blew the fucking roof off of the Garden. I wish I could give you a play by play, recount each and every detail of the evening, but as with most experiences in which sensory overload plays a key role, all I remember are flashes and fragments; disconnected moments that packed enough of an emotional punch to imprint themselves on my brain. So that's what I'll give you, those flashes.
