Heart's Wilson Sisters Make Cameo in New "Funny or Die" Video Starring Alice in Chains

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and MuseumHeart's Ann and Nancy Wilson are two of the many rock stars who make cameos in a new video in which popular grunge band Alice in Chains pokes fun at its musical legacy to help promote the release of its upcoming album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

The clip, which can be viewed at FunnyOrDie.com, is an 11-minute mockumentary that follows a community college film studies professor named Alan Poole McLard as he interviews a variety of musicians about how Alice in Chains has influenced them and their music.

The bulk of the faux documentary, titled AIC 23, focuses on conversations with a number of unknown musicians who are portrayed by the members of Alice in Chains in disguises.  The Wilson sisters pop up near the end of the clip, and during their brief segment Nancy says of the group, "It's an event.  It's not even a band.  It's a lot of spitting." 

Other rock luminaries who share their thoughts on the band include Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil.  Former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan also makes an appearance in the short film, but he mistakenly thinks that the documentary is about Alice Cooper.

The Wilsons have long had a close relationship with Alice in Chains, whose bassist, Mike Inez, was a member of Heart from 2003 to 2006.  In addition, Alice in Chains guitarist/singer Jerry Cantrell, as well as Pearl Jam's McCready, will perform with Heart at this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 18.
