Chris DeGarmo to Perform at Founders Award Honoring Alice in Chains
By Brian Heaton
Former Queensryche guitarist and songwriter Chris DeGarmo will appear at the 2020 Museum of Pop Culture Founders Award event, honoring Alice in Chains.
DeGarmo is among dozens of artists scheduled to play a tribute performance at the show—a who's who list of rock and metal royalty that includes Metallica, Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Mastodon, and members of Soundgarden. The show will be held online, on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and will start at 6 p.m. Pacific.
For the first time ever, the annual event will shift from the Museum of Pop Culture's Sky Church stage to an online platform where the show will be free and simulcast on Facebook, Twitch, and Amazon Music. Further information on the event and how to tune in can be found here.
It is unclear how long DeGarmo will play, or whether it will be acoustically or plugged-in with a band. The guitarist is simply listed by name, with “of Queensryche” tagged on at the end.
