Touring with [Alice in Chains] was absolutely over-the-top: part Spinal Tap, part Disneyland for adults. Porno party at the fuckin’ Playboy Mansion. Jimi Hendrix, as big as Janis Joplin. All colors, all shapes, all sizes, all temperatures, all the time…. And the whole time there’s every chemical possible flying through the air, falling out of pockets, landing in your hand, accidentally going inside you somehow.
ex-Gruntruck guitarist Tom Niemeyer, from the forthcoming book Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge
