This week’s Rockucation question is: This singer was part of a band during the Grunge movement. But he and his band didn’t come from Seattle. He also fronted a second band, that was a supergroup. In both bands he was booted out for his drug and alcohol use. He is currently touring as a solo act. Who is the singer and what two bands was he in?
