Alumni: Jerry Cantrell

Posted by BHS on 7/21/2017

Spanaway Lake High School has produced countless athletes, scholars and artists, but perhaps the most famous SLHS alum is Jerry Cantrell, the founder, lead guitarist and primary songwriter for the iconic rock band Alice in Chains. Cantrell began playing guitar during his time at SLHS, where he was also heavily involved in the school choir. A 2012 reader’s poll in Guitar World Magazine named Cantrell the 37th greatest guitar player of all time.
