HEARTit is Anne Wilson released a music video for its cover version of the CHAINED ALICE classic “Rooster”. You can now watch it below.

Wilson performed his version of “Rooster” when CHAINED ALICE was presented with the Pop Culture Museum (MoPOP) Founders Awards in December 2020. “Rooster” is also the B side on Annalimited edition 45 rpm record, available for purchase at AnnWilson.com.

In a December 2020 interview with the Seattle Times, Anna said about his version of “Rooster”“I wanted to stay true to the song as much as possible, but I wanted to make it my own. But really, honoring the original spirit of the song, which is the cockroaches and the flies and all that kind of stuff. [Laughs]. Before I know what form MoPOP thing was going to take with the live performances, I made a video for ‘Rooster’ it was really dark. They decided not to use it because they wanted it to be a bunch of live performances. But sometimes I will put this video because it’s really cool. It’s just maggots, war stuff, darkness and madness.”

Asked by rock cave how she chose “Rooster” for his performance at Pop Culture Museum an event, Anna said: “Talking with [ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist] jerry [Cantrell], who’s a friend, about what song I should do, I said, ‘How would you feel if I did ‘Rooster’?’ Because I had sung with them on the record of ‘Rooster’ years ago. And he thought it was a really good idea, so that’s what we did.”

In 2006, CHAINED ALICE drummer Sean Kinney Recount Aquarius Weekly on HEART: “Anna and Nancy are the most talented musicians and the most beautiful women I have ever met. They are so cool and genuine and not weird assholes. The talent they have is overwhelming and the music they have made over the years is flawless.

Cantrell okay saying, “I’m from Seattle, man. We didn’t have too many heroes coming out of our city. We had [Jimi] Hendrix and HEART, QUEENSRŸCHE and that was about it. We didn’t have a lot of nationally respected actors, and those were the people we had and those were some real fucking quality bands. Quality music and quality people too. I have known the girls for many years now. Seattle isn’t such a big city, so everyone pretty much knows everyone and we spent many years hanging around.”

Kinney added: “They’re really good friends, and we’re from the same town. I grew up holding their foldout albums in one hand, locked in my bedroom at night… No, just kidding. They just got really good friends and they’re such talented women with such amazing looks. My sister drew me to them when I was little, and I’ve been a fan ever since. It was really weird to be able to become friends with them and have opportunities to play with them… They have to be the best female rock stars of all time in my book.

“The most powerful voice I have ever heard is Anne Wilson“, Cantrell noted. ” Without contest. And the guitar work and the singing that Nancy fact is amazing too. It’s an incredible thing. They are legends in my mind.

“It’s not like when Dear shows up and does ‘do you beLIEEEVE’ with a vocoder”, laughed Kinney. “AnnaI’ll blow your brains out when she sings. I’ve had a chance to play with her and other singers are powerful, but if they don’t change your monitor mix she gets up and knocks you off your drum throne. It’s like, ‘Wow, that’s the shit right there.'”
