He rocketed up the music charts in the 1990s with his hit grunge band, accumulating millions of female fans along the way.
The group flew to new heights with their first international chart hit with the track Mr Jones in 1993.
This hot rockstar, with his trademark loc hairdo, soon had some of the era’s most lauded beauties on his arm, dating the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Winona Ryder and Courteney Cox.

They spoke retrospectively about their career so far, and teased The Butter Miracle Tour which kicks off at Adelaide’s Hindley Street Music Hall on March 30.
Viewers were surprised to see how much the two band members had changed since their early days when Adam was known for wearing locs.
‘The dreads are gone, but the boys are back for their first national tour in seven years’, co-host Sylvia announced.
The co-hosts proceeded to ask the rockers about how it felt to return Down Under with new material and an accompanying concert trek on the way.

‘Everything back on the road is great,’ Adam replied.
The boys agreed they had a wide demographic of fans who watch their concerts, partly due to the ‘Shrek effect’.
Their song Accidentally in Love came about when film studio DreamWorks had asked the band to write a song for the film’s opening scene.
They agreed to participate, and started on the project soon afterwards.
Adam collaborated with the Shrek 2 director Andrew Adamson and one of its producers to watch the film.
He was later given a DVD copy of the footage to help the creative process.
Although, Adam didn’t expect to collaborate with the film’s team over the phone, but felt inspired to finish the track while touring England.
All parties eventually worked out which changes needed to be made to the song, and the finish product was released.

Adam and David’s working relationship goes back further than fans had expected.
‘Two of us have been working together for almost 40 years, you bring so much to each other all the time,’ Adam said.
The collaborative duo have produced three Top 20 hits on the ARIA Singles Chart as part of Counting Crows.
The band were formed in the San Francisco region in 1991 before signing on to a record deal with Geffen Records.
