Profile Bio Text
Jerry Fulton Cantrell Jr. (born March 18, 1966 in Tacoma, Washington) is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter best known for his work with the Alternative metal band Alice in Chains, as guitarist and co-lyricist. He performs lead vocals on his solo projects, and was part of Alice in Chains` harmonizing dual-vocal style. He currently resides in Los Angeles and spends time on his family ranch in Oklahoma.
Jerry Cantrell would serve in Alice in Chains as the lead guitarist, co-lyricist, co-vocalist and main composer
Cantrell`s career outside Alice in Chains has consisted of three solo albums, as well as many appearances with other musicians and on film soundtracks.
In July 2006, British hard rock magazine Metal Hammer awarded Cantrell the title of Riff Lord, at its annual Golden Gods Awards show, held at the London Astoria. He was apparently thrilled at winning the title, over several famous artists such as Slash, James Hetfield, and Jimmy Page.
Cantrell`s father, Jerry Sr., is a combat veteran of the Vietnam War. He was the main subject in the song "Rooster" which Cantrell wrote as a tribute to his father. His mother Gloria died in 1990, the very same year that his close friend Andrew Wood (of Mother Love Bone) died, leading Jerry to pen the song "Would?" for AIC`s second album Dirt in Wood`s memory. He also dedicated AIC`s debut album Facelift to his late mother. An ex-girlfriend of Cantrell`s has been the main subject of many Alice in Chains songs written by Cantrell.
Cantrell`s Oklahoma ranch was featured on the 34th episode of MTV Cribs. He also resides in the small city of Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
