Congrats to longtime Epiphone artist Dave Navarro
and all of Janes Addiction who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters and drummer John Densmore of The Doors were in attendance.
"I never really though this would happen, this is such a magical day for me," said Navarro
. "My father explained to me when I was a kid what these stars were and what they meant. We would see movies of this street and I never imagined I would be a part of this legacy with this band…I'm very honored to be here with these guys."
This month celebrates 29 years since the band's first performance at Safari Sam's (billed as James Addiction) and as a birthday present, LA Weekly
proclaimed them to be the Ultimate LA band. And who would dare to argue? Look for a new album and tour next year.
