Jane's Addiction

Jane's Addiction were one of the most hotly pursued rock bands when they gained notice in Los Angeles in the mid-'80s, with record companies at their feet. Flamboyant frontman Perry Farrell, formerly of the band Psi Com, had an undeniable charisma and an interest in provocative art (he designed the band's album covers), and Jane's Addiction played a hybrid of rock music: metal with strains of punk, folk, and jazz. The quartet, comprised of Farrell, bassist Eric Avery, drummer Stephen Perkins, and guitarist Dave Navarro, had already released its debut album as well, in the form of a live recording from the Roxy in Hollywood. Finally, Warner Bros. won the bidding war and released Nothing's Shocking in 1988. The band's abrasive sound and aggressive attitude (typified by the nude sculpture on the cover) led to some resistance, but Jane's Addiction began to break through to an audience -- the album spent 35 weeks on the charts.

Ritual de lo Habitual followed in 1990 and was the band's commercial breakthrough, reaching the Top 20 and going gold. Farrell designed the traveling rock festival Lollapalooza as a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction. After the tour was completed at the end of the summer of 1991, the group split. Farrell would continue to be involved with the organization of the annual Lollapalooza festival for the next several years; he also formed Porno for Pyros with Perkins in 1992, releasing their debut record the following year. After a couple of quiet years -- which included forming Deconstruction, a band that didn't release any records until 1994, with Avery -- Navarro joined Red Hot Chili Peppers at the end of 1993.

By 1997, Perkins and Farrell had dissolved Porno for Pyros, while Navarro was about to resign from Red Hot Chili Peppers. After Navarro began playing with his two former bandmates again during Porno for Pyros' final tour, a Jane's Addiction reunion tour was announced for the fall of the same year. The only catch was that Chili Peppers bassist Flea replaced Avery (Avery refused to participate, as he concentrated on his new band, Polar Bear). To coincide with the short tour, the newly reunited Jane's Addiction issued the album Kettle Whistle, which compiled classic live performances and demos alongside a few newly recorded tracks. The album didn't fare well on the charts, but the reunion tour was a rousing success. It didn't lead to a permanent re-formation, however, as members went their separate ways once more after its completion. A planned film documentary of the reunion tour failed to materialize, as a best-of compilation that chronicled Farrell's work (with Jane's, Porno, and a few new solo tracks) was issued in 1999, titled Rev. His first solo full-length, Song Yet to Be Sung, saw the light of day in 2001. Navarro's debut solo effort, Trust No One, was issued a month earlier than Farrell's, as another Jane's Addiction reunion was announced the same year. Avery again refused to participate, with his spot being filled by former Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn Lenoble.

Several years later, Jane's Addiction readied themselves to do it again. In mid-2002, Farrell, Navarro, and Perkins headed back into the studio for their first album of new material in over a decade. Bass player Chris Chaney (Tommy Lee, Alanis Morissette) was added to the group and Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Kiss, Aerosmith) signed on to produce the new record. Capitol prepped for the release of Strays in July 2003 while Farrell resurrected Lollapalooza after a six-year break.

Around 2004, Jane's Addiction announced they had broken up yet again and the members began work on several other music projects. Navarro, Perkins, Chaney, and vocalist Steve Isaacs formed the band the Panic Channel, and released the album (One) in 2006. Also in 2006, Navarro co-hosted the CBS reality music competition Rock Star: Supernova, in which contestants vied to become the lead singer for a supergroup featuring drummer Tommy Lee, bassist Jason Newsted, and guitarist Gilby Clarke. In early 2007, the Panic Channel and Supernova toured together. Meanwhile, Farrell and his wife Etty Lau Farrell, along with former Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, formed the band the Satellite Party and released the album Ultra Payloaded in 2007.

In 2008, Jane's Addiction reunited, this time featuring the original lineup including bassist Avery, who had not performed with the band since 1991. The band quickly re-recorded two tracks, "Whores" and "Chip Away" -- which had never officially been recorded in a studio -- and joined Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails on tour. The lavish box set A Cabinet of Curiosities appeared in 2009. In 2010, Avery announced he was leaving the band and was replaced by former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan. Originally added as a temporary member, McKagan ultimately signed on full-time and the band began working on new material. In May of 2010, the new-look Jane's Addiction with McKagan on bass premiered the song "Soulmate" during a Cinco de Mayo concert in Hollywood. McKagan left the group the following year, and was replaced by TV on the Radio multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek, who also appeared on the band's fourth proper studio album, 2011's The Great Escape Artist. ~ William Ruhlmann & Greg Prato, Rovi

@semperswenc h - True that, I've seen some amazing shows over the years, but for an indoor show, The Enit @ the Bill Graham tops my list. I got to play in a drum circle with Steve Perkins!!! Then when they pulled that disappearing act mid song, I was trippin hard without bein' on drugs. They actually left the stage while the same song they were playing went to track. Then they left the stage completely while the song was still playing, ON A SECOND STAGE and started in on Trip Away! Amazing!!!!
ejcotton
suck it
Awesome in Boise last night. Played a very short set, however. 1 hour 6 minutes. Come on guys, just when the show was starting to really go!
The Kettle Whistle Enit Festival in SF at the Bill Graham Auditorium was AMAZING! I got to meet Perry prior to the show-one of the best concerts I've been to......
Last concert I saw with my father before he passed away. The memory will be with me forever. Thanks for the awsome performance at the Palace in Waterbury, CT.

Better than ever in Raleigh this week. Perry Farrell's a flippin' genius.
tick_al9
saw them earlier this week in san antonio .. amazing! still got it
they are the best ever....peri o d .
How about the fact that these guys basically invented the Alternative Rock sound out of thin air!
JANES ADDICTION SUCKS!
4 studio albums spanning 4 calendar decades (80's-10's). I still think Nothing's Shocking is their best.
They were solid at Lollapalooza 2003 in Atlanta.
Glad I saw them in 1991 the rest is just a little sad.
great concert in NY @Irving
@gslammer4, i disagree, way too many legends out there to say that Dave is the best.
I spent parts of the '97 show in San Diego both backstage and the front row of the main stage. I'll always be horrified of about seeing Dave Navarro sticking a pink dildo up his a** while on stage. AAAAAHHHHHHH H
Dave Navarro the best guitar player ever
I would for You is one of J.A. best!!!!
mikebmelanco n
Janes is perfect getting f---ed up music. By the end of the album you're trashed!!
