From RollingStone.com:

When the three remaining members of Alice in Chains -- guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney -- return to the stage at L.A.'s Roxy May 18th to kick off a world tour, the reunited band will have some friends in tow, including Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan and Comes With the Fall vocalist William DuVall.

"These guys are my bros from way back, and for me it's kind of a dream come true to play with Alice in Chains," McKagan said the other night at a viewing party for the VH1 Decades Live tribute to Heart featuring the new Alice. McKagan will be joining the band for selected gigs, including England's prestigious Donington festival. "It's a band I've always wanted to play in," he added. "I played with them in their first gig in L.A. I got up and played 'Man in a Box.'"
