Here is your first taste of Jane’s Addiction performing with Duff McKagan taken from last night’s party in L.A. for Perry Farrell’s 51st Birthday Party. A huge thanks goes out to Earl McDaniel for sharing these videos with us, and allow us to share them with you.

Last night at Perry Farrell’s fifty-first Birthday celebration a re-tooled Jane’s Addiction took the stage with bassist Duff McKagan. The show at Les Deux marks the first public performance by the band since Duff entered the fray.
I’m uncertain of the set or set time but the band definitely played a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love. Dave Navarro wanting the proper tone I presume, can be seen playing a Les Paul in the following photos.
Thanks go out to Todd Newman for tweeting these pics.
After an explosive day of traffic yesterday, our database went down and we were forced to be offline for a while. We’re back up and have made a few changes that should hopefully fix the problems from yesterday. Thanks for being patient!
There is still no official word from the Jane’s Addiction camp about who their new bassist is, but our friend Joseph sent us these pictures of Jane’s Addiction working in the studio. That looks like Duff McKagan to me.
Edit (3/31) Perry Farrell posted the following additional picture via Twitter:
Perry will be celebrating his 51st Birthday this Tuesday March 30th at Les Deux in Hollywood. It will be a night not to miss and tickets will go fast!
Hellride, the side project by Steve Perkins, Mike Watt and Peter DiStefano will be playing the Supper Club in Venice, CA tomorrow night. Check it out if you are going to be in the area. Here is the flyer for that show:
I’m very happy to announced that we’ve completed our overhaul of the Jane’s Addiction discography. All primary releases (albums, singles & demos) have been overhauled and integrated into the new site format. Each entry includes a lot more information. We’ve also added tons of new scans, as well as upgraded countless of our existing scans. These articles are far more detailed that our previous incarnation, and all titles are granted a single page as opposed to pages for each version.
We’ll continue to update and improve this section, as well as continue our expansion of this upgrade across other bands. If you have missing scans, or can upgrade existing scans, feel free to contact us and / or send new scans to submissions < at > janesaddiciton < dot > org.
Perry Farrell noted on his Twitter and Facebook pages that the official lineup for the 2010 Lollapalooza concert will be revealed on April 6th.
I was told last week by Perry that writing and work would be in full effect starting this week. Today both Perry and Dave made it official via Twitter. Jane’s Addiction have begun work on a new album.
Today the first day of writing for Jane’s. We are meeting up in the city weekdays. Today’s my first drive. I love LA, but it’s roads agony.

Removing any last hopes and doubts about his future with Jane’s Addiction, Eric Avery posted the following on his facebook and twitter accounts minutes ago:
