Rocker Dave Navarro
has dismissed former bandmate Perry Farrell
's claims his reality TV show Rock Star
broke up Jane's Addiction
. Guitarist Navarro claims the frontman has his timings mixed up, as he wasn't approached to make Rock Star
until he was recording with his new band The Panic Channel
, which also features Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney and drummer Stephen Perkins.
Farrell said, "My band broke up basically over reality TV, and I just couldn't believe it."
Navarro hits back on his website: "The timeline just doesn't make sense. I didn't even get a call about the idea of Rock Star until The Panic Channel was recording a demo with (recording engineer) Brian Virtue."
