Mad Season

Another Seattle-based supergroup, Mad Season featured Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley linking up with Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, the Walkabouts' bassist John Baker Saunders and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin in 1995 for an especially grungetastic album called Above. Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan also contributed two guest spots on the album, which featured the hit "River of Deceit." Sadly, the deaths of Staley and Saunders ensured that Above would be this supergroup's lone album.
