Considering everyone knew this was inevitable, we won’t tell you to reach for the Kleenex, but as it’s been hinted now for weeks, bassist Eric Avery has quit Jane’s Addiction. The group’s original bassist joined the band early last year for a reunion stint that saw the infamous L.A. quartet hit up just about every major festival, including sharing a bill with Nine Inch Nails on their final tour. Now, as Avery reports via his Twitter account, the fun has come to an end — at least for him:
thats it. with equal parts regret and relief, the janes addiction experiment is at an end.
The band just finished its current tour last night, all the way across the globe in Perth, Australia. But don’t think Mr. Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro are through. If rumors prove right, they might have a fellow Gun to shoot around. Okay, that just sounded gross.
Then there’s always that rumor about the guys hitting the road with Mr. Corgan’s Wild Ride.
