Yesterday, June 1st, Jane's Addiction was inducted into the Guitar Center RockWalk by Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello saying, "They're a band that could have happened nowhere else and a band that sounds like the city in which they were formed. You can hear the violence, the drugs, the beauty, the ocean, the hope, smog, fear and redemptive power of our city in JANE'S music." The city he's describing is, obviously, Los Angeles.
And according to their website Guitar Center's RockWalk is "Dedicated to honoring those individuals and groups who have made significant contributions to the music industry." Perhaps something one should take in upon a trip to LA. (http://www.rockwalk.com/RWstory/RWstorymore.cfm)
