JANE'S ADDICTION Frontman To Guest On CBC's 'The Hour'

JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell will be the featured guest on "The Hour" this coming Wednesday night (June 3). The program, which airs at 11:00 p.m. on CBC in Canada, is hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos. The interview will be available for viewing at this location once it has aired.

JANE'S ADDICTION recently entered the studio to record a pair of new songs, with NINE INCH NAILS frontman Trent Reznor and producer Alan Moulder producing. Farrell told The Eagle-Tribune the sessions were marred by the re-emergence of long-standing tensions, and the band didn't finish the two new songs, "Embrace The Darkness" and "I'll Protect You".

"I wish I could express myself exactly what it was," he said about what is responsible for the tensions that exist in JANE'S ADDICTION. "But unfortunately, a lot of it, I'm not really sure what it is because it's not been expressed to me."

He added, "I think a lot of it has to do, let's face it, we're all people that love attention and some of us maybe would love to get more attention. "It could be that, you know what I'm saying... But again, this is all conjecture.

"You know, I was the guy who originally in 1991 left the group," he continued. "Let me tell you my reasons. I felt that the group wasn't united. We were not friends. We didn't care about each other. We were working against each other behind each other's backs. That was why I decided (to leave). To make music, as far as I'm concerned, you have to be united and you have to be — it's like a marriage — you have to be in love with each other. (In order) for the other person to make music with you, you have to trust them and everything else, and I felt there was no trust."
