Dave Navarro Is Not Averse To Getting The Old Band Back Together

78332516.jpgPerhaps realizing that he’ll need a revenue stream more lucrative than reality TV and less messy than porn to keep him in tattoos and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, former Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro has hinted on his blog that he wouldn’t be averse to getting back together with Perry Farrell and the gang for one last cash grab reunion tour:

What would happen if a tour came about? You are on record (apparently) as saying your not really interested.

Yeah, well to be honest… My love for the music out weighs any old baggage that might have been. As I have said in the past… If Van Halen and the Eagles can get over their issues, I don’t see why we can’t. I just think that if something like that ever happened, it should be shows only with no new label, management, photo shoots, press and all that crap that clouds the experience. Simply a month or two of theater tour dates to celebrate the music.

Dare I say that this plan sounds … classy? I’m starting to think that the world has really and truly gone mad. Although one does wonder if Navarro is saying “shows only, nothing else” so as to pre-emptively prevent Perry Farrell from having any brainstorms about album art.

    I for one am over it because Jane’s Addiction has broken up and gotten back together so many times in the past 18 years, I no longer care. I guess if you never saw them in their prime, then this is good news.

  2. Recury

    This still doesn’t explain why he was on Tim and Eric a week or two ago.

  3. TheContrarian

    Unless Eric Avery is on board, it’s bullshit. Loudersoft is right – it can only possibly be interesting if you never saw them when they were a hot strung-out mess. Gawd, they fuckin’ rocked back then.

  4. Captain Wrong

    That banner behind him is totally giving him bunny ears.

    PS- Jane’s…meh. Perhaps the most overrated band of my high school years.
