Jerry Cantrell remains one of the most iconic rock musicians of our generation.
His career outside of Alice in Chains has consisted of two solo albums and several film soundtracks. Jerry’s first solo album, Boggy Depot, was released in 1998 and contained three singles including the popular “Cut You In” and “My Song.” In 2002, Cantrell issued his second album, Degradation Trip, with Ozzy Osbourne’s then live rhythm section, Mike Bordin (drums) and Robert Trujillo (bass). The album featured two singles, “Anger Rising” and “Angel Eyes,” and the track “She Was My Girl” was included on the Spider-Man soundtrack. Degradation Trip was re-released in November of that year as a double album, featuring eleven additional tracks. In addition to his solo albums, Jerry Cantrell released music on soundtracks for several films including The Cable Guy, John Wick 2 and The Punisher.
