Last week’s Rockucation question was: This super group featured John Waite, Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain, who were they and they had one big hit written by Diane Warren, what was the name of it? Surprised that no one got this one. It was Bad English and it was When I See You Smile.

Consider this your PSA for the week. Lenny Kravitz has a new album coming on September 23, called Strut and he has a lyric video out for the song, The Chamber.
