Jane’s Addiction has been nominated for induction to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame; it was announced this morning that the band is on the ballot for the class of 2017.
Guitarist Dave Navarro spoke to Billboard correspondent Gary Graff about receiving the nod; an excerpt follows:
“We’re super excited, but it’s hard to talk about because it’s a nomination. The jury’s still out. Of course it’s very much an honor and we’d love to be in the Hall, but we don’t want to jinx it. We’re a three-time Grammy-nominated band that has never won the Grammy, and here we are now with another nomination. It’s hard to pull the trigger of excitement just yet, but we’re secretly psyched to be nominated.”
“The company we’re in, it’s pretty spectacular,” says Navarro. “They’re all bands that I either grew up with or grew up listening to. So it’s a pretty big deal for me to see the MC5, the Cars, Journey, Pearl Jam and Jane’s Addiction all being mentioned. It’s pretty surreal. And ELO, I think that’s a slam-dunk. I don’t think they should even bother nominating ELO, they should just be in and let everyone figure out who else gets in. So it’s all pretty hard to digest, to be honest with you. To be considered one of those bands just makes me want to cry.”
On October 21st, Jane’s Addiction will release a 6 LP Box Set entitled Sterling Spoon. This limited edition will only have 5,000 copies pressed worldwide. It features: Ritual De Lo Habitual, Nothing’s Shocking…, Kettle Whistle Extractions, and Live At The Hollywood Palladium 1990. Pre-orders can now be placed via Amazon.com. The cover art, created by Ernesto Yerena, can be seen below.
