I would love to see Dave and Stephen come out and jam with 38 Special on "Back To Paradise" from Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds In Paradise! :rockon:

LOL! WTF! I truly do not understand this one. How much money can they possibly be getting for this show? Aren't there plenty of other slighter cooler festivals that they can play? I just feel bad b/c this may truly be an empty show for them. This is announced on the same night that I get Revis back on My Jets! Come ON Man! I guess everything evens out.

I was reading an interview with FNM the other day. They were talking about how they were able to make a new record because they genuinely admire what each person brings to the table creatively. Jane's does not, and never really had this. This is why the band never moved forward artistically in a satisfying way. There is not an ounce of mutual respect and they just do NOT inspire each other.

Think about it: did you ever hear Dave, Perk, or Perry talk about how excited they were to have Eric back in the band in 09 beyond a vague "Eric brings a thunderous bottom end!"? Do you ever hear Perry say anything about Dave or Perk beyond generic compliments about how competently they play their instruments? They are passively dismissive about what each person contributes. It's an arbitrary relationship propped up by a brand.

This is a large reason why we have arrived at where we are today.

Dave regularly has stated that he thinks Perry is an amazing frontman. And not in interviews, but on DM where no one is listening.

(What are people's takes on this? Was hooking up with Etty the crux of ALL of this, or did the numbers [money] offered just get so big that he couldn't say 'no' even if they had never found each other? With the revenue from the songs, touring, and the inflow from Lollapalooza, I find it hard to believe his caviar tastes got out of control and he needs the cash. For a cat that preached it from on high, he sure lost his internal compass. Incredibly disappointing, and embarrassing.)


I think Dave is probably making a quarter million per season of Ink Master and probably doesn't even need Jane's Addiction at this point.

I think Chaney makes decent enough money doing session work and probably doesn't need the gig.

Stephen DEFINITELY needs the money because he never does anything other than those celebrity jam sessions at Guitar Center.

And Perry... I think Etty is probably spending faster than he can make it. Plus he spent all his Jane's 1.0 money on buying slaves. With a hoarse voice and no chance anyone else will ever want to work with him on a new band at his age, I think he signs on for these shitty corporate gigs whenever Dave has a free month or 2 off of Ink Master to get him through the year till his Lollapalooza paychecks gets deposited into the joint checking account that Etty then empties within 6 days. Then she gets stressed from all the shopping and needs a vacation. 3 months later, begin the process again.

All of the press I've seen intimates that .38 Special is the headliner, or at least mentioned 1st and JA last. I don't think Jane's will be received very well at all. And Perry's banter will be seriously altered. I can't think of a more ill suited demographic than this for Jane's. This won't end well.

Sadly I wish they used these gigs to warm up for writing days etc. Won't happen. They won't even meet with each other till 1 hour before the show to do two songs backstage and write out the same setlist. So Sad. Perry has lost his mind.

I think you guys are overrating session work. The Music Industry is DEAD. How much can Chris Chaney get for doing a bit of session work each year? A few thousand a day?

Do you think Perry will come out during 38 Special's encore and dedicate "Caught Up In You" to Etty?!




I hate to be beat a dead horse but remember when Jane's toured with Oscar winning composer Trent Reznor and they were on the cusp of recording an album with him and Eric Avery? Now they're playing a fucking beer/Indy 500 thing with 38 Special. What's next? The county fair with Foghat?

:no:

This has now hit embarrassing

I think we might be overrating him a bit. He's far from being a poor drummer, but creatively he's very limited. He ran absolutely out of ideas after Good God's Urge. Everything he played after that is either simple standard drumming and/or extremely similar to Had a Dad.

I was just looking at the 38 Special website and they have gigs booked into October! I didn't realize they were that popular. :yikes:

I think the crowd will be okay with JA. They'll like Etty in her hotpants or lingerie ensembles she wears.

I may be wrong, but I think Indy car races are not so redneck anymore. The crowds seem pretty diverse to me.
When Toronto had the Molson Indy(now Honda Indy) I went a couple of times. It was fun. I liked the pit area the best. I should say, I didn't actually pay for the tickets;they were freebies we got through work.

indy crowds are much different than nascar. $40 isn't bad and i'm sure they will get a local crowd and not just race fans. perry will embarrass himself i'm sure though. either with his outfit or by what he says. dave will probably hate everything about this show.

So you think the people going to " Indy Coors Carb Get Plastered before 9am Day" actually know who Janes is, or care to find out?

You are giving them more credit than I would. :noclue:
(I have absolutely no clue about cars and racing so I could be off base here)


I think Perry will dress and behave the part. He wants to be well received. It'll rawk and there will be plenty of high octane/let's get drunk references. It's not like he is going to start spouting how we need to save the oceans and fuck bush!

Let's take bets: Does Perry wear a cape, or a tail?
