Jane’s Addiction reunion
Former JANE’S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro has answered a couple of fan-submitted questions on his web site regarding his (non-)involvement in the upcoming JANE’S ADDICTION box set and the possibility of a reunion tour. The questions and answers can be found below.
Q: Are you going to have any input concerning the JANE’S box set that [former JANE'S ADDICTION drummer Stephen Perkins] said he wanted to release this year?
Navarro: Perkins has always been the archive guy when it comes to recordings of rare and unreleased studio versions and live performances of songs. When it comes to selecting material, I have total faith in his choices as he literally has everything dating back to the late ’80s. Other than that, I can’t imagine what else would appear in a box set other than the four records that have been released.
Q: What would happen if a tour came about? You are on record (apparently) as saying you’re not really interested.
Navarro: Yeah, well, to be honest… My love for the music outweighs 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.
