This 1914 authentic Craftsman home located at 369 N. Wilton Place, Los Angeles California was the birthplace the band Jane’s Addiction. It is also the location where Perry Farrell lived with roommate Jane Bainter, the woman whose handwriting created the band logo and inspired the band name as well as the song “Jane Says”.

I recently came across this really cool photo of Krist Novoselic on stage playing a pink “Hello Kitty” guitar. After doing a bit of research on the guitar I found out it is a “Hello Kitty Stratocaster” by Squier (Fender).
After Kurt died, Courtney gave away many of his belongings to friends and fans. She gave away Kurt’s Tom Peterson watch to Kat Bjelland of Babes In Toyland. She gave away Kurt’s Fender Jag-Stang Guitar to Peter Buck of R.E.M. She also gave Navarro this Daphne Blue Fender Musicmaster guitar that used to belong to Kurt.
Dave Navarro has admitted to experimenting with men but insists he is not gay and he has quite the resume of women to prove it. Anthony Kiedis on the other hand has not admitted to experimenting with men but we do have some pictures of Kiedis and Navarro kissing on more than one special occasion.
This is the infamous photo of Anthony Kiedis kissing Eddie Vedder at the 1992 MTV Music Video Awards September 9, 1992 at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. Apparently, Kiedis had said he was in love with Vedder’s singing voice and wanted to show his “affection” for it.
Perry Farrell joined Pearl Jam on stage during Austin City Limits on October 4, 2009. Pearl Jam launched into this bad ass take on Jane’s Addiction “Mountain Song” with Perry handling the lead vocals, of course.
Jane’s Addiction’s, David Michael Navarro was the only son of Constance Colleen (nee Hopkins) and James Raul “Mike” Navarro. When Dave was 7, his parents divorced and he moved with Constance to live in Bel Air.
Jane’s Addiction released their second studio album “Ritual de lo Habitual” on August 21, 1990. Perry Farell created the original album cover that included male and female nudity based on a song from the album “Three Days”.
Jane’s Addiction claimed their name from Perry Farrell’s roommate Jane Bainter in the summer of 1985. Basically, when things went wrong at the house, the mayhem was often blamed on “Jane’s addiction,” so when Farrell needed a name for his band, the phrase was already in his mind.
