Jane’s Addiction Come to Blows
Yahoo News! is reporting that war has broken out among the original members of JANE’S ADDICTION, who are gearing up for their first tour in almost 18 years.
Singer Perry Farrell told Reuters that a mediation attempt by NINE INCH NAILS frontman Trent Reznor, with whom JANE’S ADDICTION will tour next month, was unsuccessful.
But despite the temper tantrums, Farrell is determined to keep JANE’S ADDICTION together. He, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Steven Perkins have toured on and off over the years. Bassist Eric Avery is back in the lineup after declining to play with the band after it first broke up in 1991. His return appears to have changed the delicate chemistry.
“I’m not going to tell you it’s been all smooches and hugs. But it shouldn’t be because that would be a bore,” Farrell said on the sidelines of the Coachella music festival, where he was scheduled to perform on Sunday.
