I am sitting at work still in a state of shock over seeing Jane's Addiction last night at the NME Awards. I was against the stage looking up at Perry. At Stephen. At Dave. And at ERIC AVERY . For this was truly a Jane's Addiction reunion where they performed not the one song that was promised, but four:

Stop
Mountain Song
Ocean Size
Jane Says

Still stunned. Nearly cried. Felt weak at certain times. Overall? I'm glad I missed out on my own work function to be at the show.

It truly was. I've already declared it as a top moment of '08.

I know! They were notified that NME was going to present them with the "Godlike Genius Award" so Perry, Stephen and Dave agreed to perform. Eric was, of course, the holdout until the week before. Since they were doing it to honor the memory of Jane's Addiction, and not for the cash, he agreed to do the show.

Hell, I didn't even think I was definitely getting into the El Rey until I had the passes in my hand. I didn't even want to get my hopes up since I knew that the guest lists had been cut.

At this point, we're all hoping that Eric will tour with them. It was incredible.

Donovan Leitch was in front of me for a while during the ceremony portion of the show. It was very difficult to not interrupt his conversation with his friends to say something to him.

Well, you have outdone me again.

I logged in just to post about seeing the Kids in the Hall last night during their Live as We'll Ever Be tour, only to read about your mind-blowing evening with Jane's Addiction.

Seriously, though - that's so cool.
