Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro was recently interviewed by Guitar World, as part of a feature on the band in their December issue, and you can now read excerpts from the chat over at GuitarWorld.com. Navarro discusses the making of the band’s new record, The Great Escape Artist, which will be released on October 18, as well as the current state of the group, having come together to record their first album since 2003′s Strays.
Navarro says that the members of Jane’s Addiction’s outside interests have helped the harmony within the band.
“As far as the internal structure of the band goes, we’ve never been on more solid ground. I think that’s because of the fact that we all have our own interests and lives outside of Jane’s. That actually allows the band to breathe and have more life, because we’re not all sucking from it because it’s the only thing that matters.”
