Former JANE'S ADDICTION Guitarist NAVARRO To Participate In MUSICEXPO 2005 Discussion

ABC ePrep is reporting that former JANE'S ADDICTION/RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist Dave Navarro will participate in the keynote panel discussion at MusicExpo 2005, a music and media forum that will run from May 1 through May 4 in Los Angeles. Larry King will host the discussion, which will take place on May 2.

In other news, Navarro has posted the following update on the recording sessions for the debut album from THE PANIC CHANNEL — the new band featuring three quarters of the most recent lineup of JANE'S ADDICTION (Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Chris Chaney) and former SKYCYCLE vocalist Steve Isaacs:

"[March 31] was our last night in the studio for a while. Now we sit with the mixes, see if there is anything else we need to do, and try to figure out all the other stuff that is much less fun, such as business and how to get this stuff to you. We are gonna do some shows around town and kind of pick up where we left off on the live tip. We are looking to book an April date along with a date in May or two. There has even been talk of trying to hit Vegas too, primarily because Steve is so into this Wynn Hotel opening. The songs sound great and as it stands, the album tracks we are considering are:

Tea House of the Spirits
Bloody Mary
Blue Bruises
Left to Lose
Half Hearted
Said You'd Be
She Won't Last
Unholy Ghost
Go On

"Chances are one or two of these might not make the final cut, but for now they are all tied for final approval by all of us. 'Ashes', 'Start of Darkness' and 'Someone Else' have yet to be fully realized and may come to fruition at some point, but just not right now."

As previously reported, THE PANIC CHANNEL's as-yet-untitled debut album is being recorded by producer/engineer Bryan Virtue, who worked on JANE'S ADDICTION's 2003 Capitol reunion album, "Strays".

While Navarro is signed to Capitol as a solo artist, THE PANIC CHANNEL have yet to ink a label deal. Asked to describe THE PANIC CHANNEL's sound, Navarro recently told, "It's definitely rock. The best description I can give you is, if RUSH was an alternative band with a little sense of goth. It's like a goth RUSH."
