Dave Navarro Permanently Leaving Jane’s Addiction?


Jane’s Addiction are set to head back to the studio. They will work on the follow-up to 2011’s “The Great Escape Artist”, but they’re doing so with a limited contribution by classic guitarist Dave Navarro.

Dave Navarro gone from the new recordings?

The musician has been battling long with the virus owing to the pandemic throughout the whole year, and he will not be fully available for writing and recording the band’s new studio effort.

Frontman Perry Farrell has said that the remaining guitar duties will be handled by Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen, ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Josh Klinghoffer, and Bauhaus’ Daniel Ash.

The singer explained (via Alternative Press):

“I don’t know who will end up recording the guitar tracks, but I’d love to see Dave, Troy, Josh and Daniel contribute — all the guys on the tour that really stuck it out.”

Van Leeuwen then added:

“There’s a connection there, and it’s a no-brainer. I’d like to see what they do with Dave, but if they have a plan, I’m going to show up when I can to be a part of it.”

The upcoming album will mark Jane’s Addiction’s first record with original bassist Eric Avery since 1990’s “Ritual de lo Habitual”.
