<title>Alice in Chains - Man in the Box - Solo</title>
My recording of the solo from Alice in Chains' "Man in the Box"
<series order="44">2022 music project</series>
My friends and I had a garage band in the late 90s. We played
<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_in_the_Box">Man in the Box</a>
and Metallica's <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enter_Sandman">Enter
Sandman</a> at the end-of-year assembly in 9th grade. It was possibly the
most cliche late 90s setlist of all time.<glacius:cite>Luckily for us
Papa Roach's <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Resort_(song)">Last Resort</a>
was still a few months away from taking over America.</glacius:cite>
It was a good time. I wore a white wig (?) and our bass player dyed his hair green.
Truly the halcyon days of our youth.
I used to love this song and then we practiced it like 200 times and then
I was pretty much over it. But time is a flat circle and here I am again,
unable to escape the allure. You could say I am that man. That man in the box.
