We’re used to bands calling it quits, reuniting, calling it quits again, reuniting…it’s a bit of a treadmill, and it happens all the time. However, Jane’s Addiction may just take the speed record.

Perry Farrell was a man in love: in love with youth, in love with bohemia, in love with drugs, in love with life. Their gestalt reflected an overwhelming compulsion to express.
