Taproot’s Steven Richards To Guest On Sponge’s Upcoming Alice In Chains Cover


Taproot vocalist/guitarist Stephen Richards has contributed guest vocals to an upcoming cover of the Alice In Chains classic “No Excuses“. That rendition is being done by alternative rockers Sponge. If you’re unaware, the paths of Taproot and Alice In Chains crossed back in the early 2000s.

As members of Taproot have revealed over the years, a mutual connection with producer Toby Wright saw then Alice In Chains vocalist Layne Staley being lined up for a guest appearance on what would become Taproot‘s 2002 sophomore album, “Welcome“.

However, Staley died from a overdose prior to laying down his parts, reportedly with a demo of the Taproot track in his CD player. Speaking on this upcoming tribute to the legendary grunge outfit, Richards revealed earlier today, March 25th, that he had completed his parts for it.
