Last week’s Rockucation question: There are a couple of stories on how this band got its name. The first is that this female was very close to the band and saw every show hence the name of the band, some replace being the groupie with that she was strung out on drugs. Another story is she was Jimi Hendrix’s girlfriend who was on heroin. Some say it was a drug using manager. Also that the band was named after a hooker who was a huge fan. In any event they formed in 1985, part of the alternative rock scene in Los Angeles, CA. Who is it? The answer comes to us from Los Angeles, CA. Andy Khatchatrian knew it was Jane’s Addiction.
