effin' breaking news.
Original Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery will join the band for one night only in a performance at the first ever U.S. NME Awards in Los Angeles, April 23, 2008. Avery continually declined offers to reunite with the groundbreaking band since the original break-up in 1992 and chose instead to focus on other avenues of music, including his solo album released last week on Dangerbird Records. His awesome killer answer to the obvious question: "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." Werd.

Avery today.
