For the first ever US NME Awards, Perry Farrell, Eric Avery, Dave Navarro and Stephen Perkins will reunite, perform and receive the Godlike Genius Award at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles on April 23.
After continually declining reunion offers for years, Eric Avery said of his choice to sign on, “I’ve chosen to reject the prospects of reuniting in the past for personal and philosophical reasons. I have always considered reunions to be a way to make a quick buck, and it sells short my own experience of it the first time around. The reason I started to even consider this is because it’s honoring the past instead of trying to recreate it.”
Jane’s Addiction will share Godlike Genius company with New Order, The Clash, Manic Street Preachers, Joy Division, Shaun Ryder and U2.http://www.antimusic.com/news/08/april/16Janes_Addiction_Reunion.shtml
