Rocker Perry Farrell insists Jane's Addiction's search for a permanent bass player is far from over - because their latest addition, Dave Sitek, doesn't like touring. The reunited rockers lost original bassist Eric Avery and his replacement Duff McKagan last year and former band member Chris Chaney joined the band for a New Year's Eve concert.
Now former TV on the Radio star Sitek has joined the group as Farrell, Stephen Perkins and Dave Navarro work on a new album - but he's unlikely to be a permanent fix. The frontman tells Rolling Stone, "He's not a guy that likes to go on tours though, so we haven't decided who it will be yet."
And Farrell tells the publication he's still puzzled about why former Guns N' Roses star McKagan quit the group after just three shows and five months. He adds, "I couldn't really tell you what his problem was... He's calling it 'creative differences'. I know he didn't like the idea of electronics at all. That was his complaint. We've got our gripes too, but what's the point?"
