Well, I don't really know.janesbiggestfan wrote:To add to the above, at this point I'm only hoping that Dave and Eric will record together in the future, albeit without PF.
If I have to be honest with myself for all of Perry's magic it was the music first and foremost that I loved about Jane's rather than Perrys voice (70 to 30 or 80 to 20 in terms of importance, is my rough estimate). Which basically means Eric's bass and Dave's guitar layered on top.
I love all music that has Daves guitar over Eric's bass, but I don't love all music that has Perry's vocals. This says enough for me.
Jesus, why am I returning to this board to miserate over this band. By now I think they brought more frustration to my life than joy :( Im stupid to keep doing this. Jane's is my life's lover who changed who she was and left me jilted and forever bitter.
I listened to Iris (the Deconstruction song) a few days ago. And it's a great song, well, it could be a great song, it has a cool riff, a cool atmosphere, but it just misses that thing to make it really great. Perry singing on it could have made it really great.
So it's like somebody said before, they were the sum of the 4 parts (but having Perry as a frontman really made them special) That worked. Anything else obviously doesn't.
And they're like 60 now, so they're way past the 'we don't give a shit and will rock this fucker out' days. They will never make another Three Days, Up the beach, classic girl, ...
Why are we discussing this anyway? Everyone here likes Jane's 1.0 and hates everything they did/become after that.
