Howbout those shitty remixes of "So What!" that got put out?
I think I win for raising an eyebrow to those back in 1997 ("The fuck is this techno shit?"). All downhill from there.

No but, "Another Soulmate" is probably what really made me check out.

Honestly, I enjoy TGEA for what it is. Gun to my head, I'd still say Jane's is my all-time favorite band, but not current fav, of course. Etty ruined Perry.
A good poll question I'd be interested to see the outcome of from ya'll:
- would you rather Perry died from an OD in late 1997, keeping Jane's legacy intact.
- or lived a reasonably happy life (though shitty output) well into old age.
Anyone that would wish he had OD'd instead of tarnishing his legacy (as more than just a fleeting thought) needs serious, serious mental help.

STRAYS killed janes dead .. what a shitty fucking album of poser metal .. chris cheney is etty on bass .. just sucks the life out of everything ... ninja was too little too late and tuning down made perry sound even worse ... erics douchery matched perrys .. trents demos blew chunks .. tgea album cover was the final embarassment .. can't even the speak the band name out loud without shame after that .. i get my janes fix more from ink master now than anything musical any band member has done in 25 years .. i have fun listening to dave try not to slur his words and seeing what his new hairdo and monster high doll outfits look like ... i would rather perry be alive but he seems like a miserable guy to me .. some people are so poor all they have is money .. he will probably od soon enough .. takes a lot of drugs to put up with a spoiled brat hallow whore like etty .. she will play the widow role taking cues from yoko and courtney on how to pretend u didn't kill your husband ... timing seems right .. she is all over this new perry album just like double fantasy and milk and honey or when kurt wrote live through this right before c love offed him
Whoa! :lol:

I would rather have had Perry never met Etty, and just stuck with Porno For Pyros post-1997.

His voice (or lack thereof) is more suited to PFP material, yet he insists on wrecking Jane's songs instead for the cash grab. :no:

The guy doesn't deserve to be dead for his poor choices, but it would have been nice to watch him age gracefully while churning out chill pothead island music, instead of mangling his face with plastic surgery and trying to be a House DJ during the rise of EDM/Dubstep.

Yep. I truly thought they'd do a Jane's reunion here and there for major events but Perry would gracefully age in to a bigger weirdo hippy and make acoustic shit with Peter D in to old age.

hasn't dave been sober for awhile now? he doesnt even smoke cigs anymore. i watch ink master with my mom lol she loves it.

i dont remember when i gave up, but i think it was just a lot of things piling up - perry being embarrassing, the shows all having the same setlists, TGEA sucking.

I fucked up the quotes too. Dn quit, then began smoking again. Someone mentioned watching him trying to sort words and it seemed to be in recent times. I know he was, for some time, but I also know he is/was under some medical procedures with LSD for depression I believe. For a drunk/junkie, ingesting mind altering substances is often a dangerous move

I don’t know if dave is sober or not ... he just talks like someone whosse lips are used to slurring so when he IS sober you still hear a bit of the slur ... like the lip muscle memory isn’t quite there ... just something i noticed from dating a few women with substance abuse issues

I havent' noticed any slurring when listening to Dark matter, he sounds like himself to me. He is skinnier than ever though, dunno if that's a sign he's using again

No.

He mentioned recently that he's been clean for several years. I don't remember the exact number though. 3? 5? Something like that.

He was however experimenting with microdosing under the care of a doctor, to treat his depression/trauma.

I don't think he's doing it anymore, but he had a positive experience.

He's mentioned that he stopped lifting weights and just does yoga now.

I can't find the older tweet about it, but here is a recent one where he mentions it:

Strays and UPSP were half good tmo, TPC was very bad but thinking it was not Jane's, I kept some faith.
TGEA is the one that buried my last hopes.
