Jerry Cantrell And HIs Guitar

Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell Reunited With With His Prized Guitar After Finding Out It Was Actually Misplaced


Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell has been reunited with his prized original Blue Dress G&L guitar. Yesterday, April 09th, Cantrell put up a post on his social media indicating that the guitar had seemingly been stolen from his car over the past weekend.

However, a follow-up video issued tonight (April 10th) by the grunge legend reveals that the guitar was actually misplaced. According to Cantrell [transcribed by]:

“We found the damn thing, there it is. God, what a relief. It was misplaced over the weekend, during transit between photo shoots and the studio. I’m working on a record right now. And I really thought this thing had gone missing. So thankfully it was just misplaced. It’s so amazing to me, everybody’s outreach and support, and willingness to get the word out.

I’ve been through a stolen guitar thing before with an EVH, and it took me eighteen years to get it back. So many of my brothers like Zakk [Wylde] and [Tom] Morello and [Billy] Corgan, etc. have similar stories. And I was worried to death that this thing was gone over the weekend.

So I think the headline here is how important this guitar is, not only to me, but to everybody else, and that just makes me feel very fucking special to have so many great people in my life, and so many people care. So, happy to cry wolf. It was misplaced. I hope you understand my concern. The thing is OK, there it is. And we will be rocking together very shortly for you, and thanks again.”
