Dave Navarro says 'Rock Star' didn't cause Jane's Addiction band split


By Christopher Rocchio, 06/11/2007 

Dave Navarro apparently thinks Perry Farrell needs to recheck his facts and quit reliving the past after the frontman for the now disbanded Jane's Addiction recently blamed the former Rock Star host for breaking up the group.

Farrell recently told Launch Radio Networks the reason why Jane's Addiction broke up was "basically over reality TV" when Navarro -- the band's former guitarist -- decided to take the hosting gig for CBS' Rock Star reality competition series prior to the show's first season in May 2005.

"The timeline just doesn't make sense. I didn't even get a call about the idea of Rock Star until The Panic Channel was recording demos with Brian Virtue," Navarro posted on his personal website Sunday, referencing the band he formed with fellow former Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney and drummer Stephen Perkins in 2004.

Navarro also threw some of Farrell's own words back in his face as to why Jane's Addiction split.

"Wait. What happened to this quote?" questioned Navarro. "'Music that was once relevant and graceful had become clumsy as a circus seal tooting his horns... Jane doesn't strip for anyone but me. I brought Jane's Addiction to life, it is only fitting that I am the one to bury her.' Or this one? 'I haven't spoken to them [guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins] since they broke the band up. [They] never called me. They went to Rolling Stone to [talk] about their new project [The Panic Channel]. I read about it online.'  OK. So which is it? Rock Star? He broke it up? We did?"

No matter the reasoning behind the split, Navarro concluded by adding he thinks it would be best if both he and Farrell just moved on.

"It was four years ago so I think it's about time to let it go," he posted.
