Jane’s Addiction’s reunion in 2008 was not the first since their 1991 break up. It was however, the first time the original line up had reunited in 17 years. It was in 2008 that bassist Eric Avery agreed to join the rest of the band in getting back together. Almost as quickly as it occurred, Dave Navarro and Avery have announced via their Twitter accounts that Avery is calling it quits. Duff McKagen of Velvet Revolver and Guns’n’Roses will be taking Avery’s place just as Jane’s Addiction heads back to the studio to record their fourth studio album.
