Think of the one-shot Seattle supergroup Mad Season as the grunge version of sober living. Guitarist Mike McCready, best known as the main six-string slinger in Pearl Jam, met bassist John Baker Saunders while in rehab, and the two paired with Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin and Alice in Chains' vocalist Layne Staley, partially in hopes of steering the singer onto the path of the straight and narrow. Ultimately, the plan didn't pan out but for a brief while, the quartet – who adopted the name Mad Season – did have their moment of clarity, captured on the 1995 album Above.
