Jane’s Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of vocalist Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Chris Chaney. Jane’s Addiction was one of the first bands from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States.
Founded by Farrell and original bass guitarist Eric Avery following the disintegration of Farrell’s previous band Psi Com, Jane’s Addiction’s first release was a self-titled live album, Jane’s Addiction (1987), which caught the attention of Warner Bros. Records. The band’s first two studio albums, Nothing’s Shocking (1988) and Ritual de lo Habitual (1990), were released to widespread critical acclaim and an increasing cult fanbase. As a result, Jane’s Addiction became an icon of what Farrell dubbed the “Alternative Nation.” The band’s initial farewell tour in 1991 launched the first Lollapalooza, which has since become a perennial alternative rock festival.
In 1997, the band reunited with Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, replacing Avery on bass guitar for a one-off tour. In 2001, a second reunion took place, with Martyn LeNoble—and later Chris Chaney—occupying the role of a bass guitarist. In 2003, the band released its third studio album, Strays, before dissolving the following year again. In 2008, the band’s original line-up reunited and embarked on a world tour. However, Eric Avery left the band in early 2010 as the group began working on new material. The band released its fourth studio album, The Great Escape Artist,, in 2011, with Chaney returning to the bar for its recording and subsequent tour. It featured the TV on the Radio’s multi-instrumentalist Dave Sitek. In 2016, Jane’s Addiction was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
