Layne Staley Keeps Touring and Singing with a Broken Leg [Video]

Linkin Park's tour cancellation is not good news for Grand Rapids, since they've cancelled the rest of the tour through February 14th, and we won't get to see them here at the Van Andel. Their shows begin again in May.

Alice in Chains Rocked NFC Championship Game — Even if We Didn’t See It [Video]

I was looking forward to watching the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

It was not because I'm a huge fan of either team, but because Alice in Chains was scheduled to perform during the halftime show. Is that weird?

Unfortunately, when the halftime show came on, I was stuck watching the talking heads as they broke down the first half and hearing "Man in the Box" playing in the background.
