KNAC.COM is reporting that former PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo and AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer The Rev joined the '80s metal/hard rock tribute band METAL SKOOL for a "killer take" on the PANTERA clasic "Walk" Monday night (March 27) at the Key Club in Hollywood, California. Prior to Anselmo's appearance, ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell played a "rockin' version" of ALICE IN CHAINS' "Man in the Box" with METAL SKOOL. Earlier in the evening, former RATT singer Stephen Pearcy performed a special acoustic set of RATT's classic hits that was recorded and is scheduled for release on CD on May 9, 2006 via Sidewinder Music.

Cantrell and fellow ALICE IN CHAINS members, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney, performed with Anselmo and COMES WITH THE FALL frontman William DuVall on March 10 at a taping of the VH1 Classic series "Decades Rock Live!" Anselmo sang two songs with the group, while DuVall performed another two and dueted with HEART vocalist Ann Wilson on "Rooster".

This was only the second live show for ALICE IN CHAINS since 1996. The band members played at a tsunami relief benefit in February of 2005.

ALICE IN CHAINS vocalist Layne Staley died in April of 2002.
