Guitarist Dave Navarro on how he likes to insert Rush riffs into Jane's Addiction sets
8:29PM EST | comments |

Guitar World March 2013The March, 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine has a short interview on page 33 with Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro where he discusses the band's current setlist and how he likes to insert Rush riffs during certain songs:

... I like to secretly throw in all kinds of stuff during our sets. During [Up the Beach] I'll throw in a piece of Rush's '2112'. Nobody ever catches it. But you'll see me and Stephen [Perkins-drummer] look at each other and smile like, "if Perry [Farrell-vocalist] ever knew we were playing Rush in Jane's Addiction!" [laughs] ... Here's a little-known fact: at the end of [Three Days], I usually break into Rush's 'Xanadu.'" ...

Thanks to Jim B (via John at for the heads up. The issue also happens to contain guitar and bass tabs for Fly By Night. Last year Navarro was interviewed in his car by the PopCandiesTV YouTube channel and the interviewer asks him about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dave then explains how much of a travesty it is that Rush hasn't been inducted (at the time of the interview at least). You can check out the video below or at this link:
