Jane’s A-fighting!

When it comes to a band and a recently reunited one at that, the last thing fans probably want to read about said band just hours before its frontman is about to drop his festival’s lineup and just months before its members embark on their first U.S. tour in 18 years is that “war has broken out.”

Per Reuters:

War has broken out among the original members of Jane’s Addiction, who are gearing up for their first tour in almost 18 years.

Singer Perry Farrell told Reuters that a mediation attempt by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, with whom Jane’s Addiction will tour next month, was unsuccessful.

Not even Trent can fix things? Wow, it must be really bad.

That being said, for the sake of fans, money, and everything else that inspires a band to reunite, Mr. Ferrell is determined to trudge through…

“I’m not going to tell you it’s been all smooches and hugs. But it shouldn’t be because that would be a bore,” Farrell said on the sidelines of the Coachella music festival, where he was scheduled to perform on Sunday.

“If my band didn’t have issues, if they didn’t throw tantrums, I would think I was with a bunch of suckers. As long as they can handle it, I can handle it. After all we’re just delivering music that people love, so how bad can it be? It could be worse. We could be drafted.”

So, what’s the odds for the band making it to Lollapalooza? I’ll put $50 on “No.”
