Jerry Cantrell - 'Dickeye'

By the time I was really getting into Alice in Chains, the band had been long broken up.

However, in 1998, the band's guitarist provided diehard fans such as myself with temporary relief.  Jerry Cantrell's Boggy Depot contained at least a couple of radio friendly singles ('I Cut You In' and 'My Song'), but it contained some riff-heavy tracks as well.

'Dickeye,' the opening cut, was an assault of grungy guitar and weighty rhythm playing, reminiscent of Facelift and Dirt.  Although it could hold no candle to its AIC antecedents, the song, and corresponding album, were a worthy substitute.
