Frontman Perry Farrell
Jane's Addiction is the young rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1985, which consists of Perry Farrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar), Stephen Perkins (drums) and Chris Chaney (bass).
Jane's Addiction was formed out of the remains of front man Perry Farrell’s previous band, Psi Com.
1985, Farrell searched for a new bass player for the faltering Psi-com when he was introduced to Eric Avery, who became the new member. Eric Avery, left the band in early 2010 as the group began work on new material.
Jane's Addiction was one of the first bands from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain both mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States.
 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 fan-base. As a result, Jane's Addiction became icons 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.

Guitarist Dave Navarro at House of Blues
 The band briefly reunited in 1997, with Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, replacing Avery on bass guitar.        In 2001, a second reunion took place, with Martyn LeNoble - and later Chris Chaney - occupying the role of bass guitarist.
In 2003, the band released its third studio album, Strays, before dissolving again the following year. In 2008, the band's original line-up reunited and embarked on a world tour. The band released its fourth studio album, The Great Escape Artist, in 2011, with Chaney returning to the band for its recording and subsequent tour.
Jane’s Addiction will perform as headliner at The West Stage at 9.30pm today, Saturday 20th.
