    Funny. I'm watching Friday Night Fights on ESPN, and it seems between bouts, the venue is playing nothing but AIC.

    Great band. Iconic vocals.

    I remember the REALLY old days, when they were still a glam band playing the Seattle club scene. :)

    AIC is my all time favorite band!! Im stuck in '93 lol. I have (almost) the same skull tattoo Jerry has
    I did see them in '07 and they sounded very good.

    I just miss those days as I'm getting older. And I know there's plenty of great stuff out there today but AIC in the early 1990's was just the ****. There was no pandering in those songs. They took chances and seemed to reinvent rock n roll for a brief moment when it was really kind of sucking.

    I think Dirt is one of the all time great rock records.

    the unplugged show was pretty sweet, although lane wasn't looking to well.

    I don't think he ever looked well once they started to get some recognition. He was one of the coolest front men ever though. I saw AIC, BC and Masters Of Reality in Tucson back in the 90s and he had the crowd in the palm of his hand. It was pretty amazing.
