In one of the funnier stories we’ve had here at Rock My World, Alice in Chains paid tribute to Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds who died at the age of 82. So, the twist here is how the band honored the icon, they used the image that was easily Reynolds’ most notable off-screen appearance.
It was during the bands show in Irving, Texas that they displayed a nude image of Reynolds superimposed on the cover of their 1992 album, Dirt.
“Remembering a legend,” said the band of their tribute to Reynolds.
As for the image shown, it was taken from Reynolds’ then-infamous 1972 nude photo for Cosmopolitan. It was the magazine’s first-ever male centerfold, and the shot helped make Reynolds a universal sex symbol.
Alice in Chains is currently on tour supporting the band’s new album, Rainier Fog.
