Merge proposal[edit]

Does this really require it's own article? Usually the hair band days of Layne Staley are considered just the beginning of Alice in Chains, not a band of it's own. Take Rolling Stone for example: "Starting out as a fledgling glam-metal outfit," this suggests that this was just an early incarnation of the group. RG (talk) 23:01, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to submit a strong 'against' to the merge proposal. Here's what I posted on the Talk:Alice in Chains page: "I would argue that the two are separate entities, albeit with similar (okay, practically the same) name(s). The band's membership, sound and setlist were quite different. Nonetheless, I think that Rolling Stone quote you mention actually refers to the early days of Alice in Chains proper (i.e., the latter band formed by Staley, Cantrell, Starr and Kinney, not the former with Staley and three other musicians,) who were themselves essentially born from the glam metal scene. I think that calling Alice N' Chainz/Chains (I've seen it spelled both ways) the beginning of Alice in Chains is misleading - in fact, the latter was a new band who later adopted a moniker similar to an old, disconnected project from one of the members."

alice in chains and alice 'n chains are the same thing, this is just an earlier incarnation of aic, not a different band (which this article implies). this article needs to be merged. — Preceding unsigned comment added by I call the big one bitey (talkcontribs) 17:12, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

This is a response to I call the big one bitey. Not sure I agree with you about that. While I myself usually say this is an earlier incarnation of Alice in Chains as stated in that Los Angeles Times article about My Sister's Machine, Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney have stated this was a totally different band. Before you go about taking matters into your own hand, please wait for other people to weigh in and if they agree it should be merged, then I will shut up and leave you to it.

Jerry Cantrell: "...and at that particular time Layne had a version of this, you know, using the name Alice N' Chains. It was spelled a little differently and it was, you know, a completely different band." Shaneymike (talk) 01:34, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
