Currently on tour promoting their new album Rainier Fog, Seattle's Alice in Chains paid homage to recently deceased actor Burt Reynolds by displaying an image combining the cover of the band's 1992 album Dirt with an instantly recognizable image of Reynold from his April 1972 Cosmopolitan centerfold shoot, the first nude male magazine photos ever taken. The shot appeared first at the group's Irving, Texas, show on September 8th, flashing on screens during the performance before being uploaded to the official Alice in Chains Instagram for fans everywhere to enjoy. Whether the band will break out the Photoshopped image at other dates has yet to be seen — you can check out their upcoming itinerary below.
