It happened again in 1994 with “Interstate Love Song”, “Vasoline”, and “Big Empty” off their second album, “Purple”.

He also sang for VELVET REVOLVER, with the guys from GUNS N’ ROSES. But his relationships with both bands didn’t end well, because of the drugs. He missed shows, went to rehab, got multiple DUIs, and was arrested for buying crack.
