William DuVall Reveals Which Alice In Chains Song He’s Most Proud Of


Alice In Chains vocalist/guitarist William DuVall has taken part in Kerrang!‘s ‘The 10 Songs That Changed My Life’ feature, revealing the various songs that played a pivotal role in his life. During the discussion he reveals the first Alice In Chains song he ever heard: “Man In A Box“:

“I heard ‘Man In The Box‘ first, but the song that really made me take notice was ‘Would?‘. What got me was the ‘Am I wrong?’ bit at the end, which was such an unusual harmonic turn. I’ve definitely had a few ‘How did I get here?’ moments while performing both of those songs since.”

As for which song he is currently most proud of, he chose Alice In Chains‘ 2018 track “Never Fade“:

Jerry [Cantrell, guitarist] had the music and the chorus, but nothing else. We went into the studio in Seattle, and I stayed up all night creating the rest.

When we click, we click hard. There’s no second guessing. The song isn’t just about [the musicians] we’ve lost – it’s also about those who remain in your life and how special that is.”
