Jane’s Addiction have reunited to perform on Lolla2020 – this year’s virtual Lollapalooza festival, marking the first time the band has played together in three years.

Taking to a remote soundstage, frontman (and Lollapalooza founder) Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Chris Chaney offered up live renditions of ‘I Would For You’ and ‘Stop!’.

Watch both songs play out below:

Lollapalooza’s Lolla2020 is happening now, having kicked off its four-day livestream event on Thursday July 30. The cancellation of the original event due to coronavirus was announced in June.

Earlier on in the festivities, Farrell had also reunited with Porno For Pyros, who gave their first live performance in 24 years. Yesterday (August 1), Farrell and his latest project Kind Heaven Orchestra staged a tribute to David Bowie by covering ‘Ziggy Stardust’.

Other Lolla2020 highlights include Queens Of The Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures frontman Josh Homme performing an acoustic rendition of the latter’s song ‘Spinning in Daffodils’, taken from their eponymous 2009 album.

Chris Cornell‘s daughter Toni also joined the Lolla2020 festivities, performing a cover of Pearl Jam‘s hit 1991 song ‘Black’.

Watch St. Vincent Cover Tool’s ‘Forty Six & 2’ during pre-show warm-up

St. Vincent has shared an old video of herself covering Tool’s ‘Forty Six & 2’ during a pre-show warm-up – you can watch it below.

Filmed backstage during one of the dates on her 2017 Fear The Future solo tour, St. Vincent – real name Annie Clark – revisited the days before the coronavirus pandemic, sharing her acoustic rendition of the metal band’s 1998 single.

“TOOL as preshow warm-up during MASSEDUCTION solo tour,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “Pink bunnysuit hanging in background. Will always love this band. Miss you guys.”

See St. Vincent’s cover of ‘Forty Six & 2’ below:

Last month, St. Vincent shared a video cover of her playing Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Stairway To Heaven’ as a fond tribute to those who “fumble through” the song in guitar shops.

“Since guitar stores have been closed, I thought you might have missed the sound of someone fumbling through ‘Stairway To Heaven,’” the singer wrote in the accompanying caption to the clip, which she shared on Instagram.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that St. Vincent will take part in a forthcoming instalment of Audible’s Words and Music listening series.

The episode will focus on the artist’s creative journey and vision, and will launch in the coming months on Audible.

In April, Tool drummer Danny Carey revealed that the band were hoping to write new music while in quarantine.

The band have postponed a host of tour dates due to the coronavirus pandemic, with shows from April through to June called off.

Speaking as part of a new bass and drums webinar that also features Tool bassist Justin Chancellor, members of Korn, Megadeth and more, Carey spoke of what the band have been up to during their time in isolation.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor tells people to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on”

Slipknot, Corey Taylor

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor has sent a message to those complaining about having to wear a face mask during the coronavirus pandemic, telling them to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on.”

Countries including the UK, Australia, Vietnam, Mexico, Singapore and parts of the US have introduced face mask mandates to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

In an interview with Australia’s Triple M Rock, the Slipknot frontman was asked for his views on those who weren’t sticking to the face mask rules. “Stop whining and put your god damn mask on,” he began. “This isn’t an isolated incident. My country’s loaded with these dumbasses that think it is some sort of political standpoint or some sort of partisan garbage.

“And I’m just like, ‘Are you serious?’ Just because you haven’t had anyone in your life affected by it doesn’t mean that it’s not a real thing.”

Taylor continued on, comparing wearing a face mask to the masks he and his bandmates wear on stage. “I once had to wear a full head mask for eight hours while doing Slipknot press,” he said. “Eight hours straight – didn’t take it off, but these people are going to bitch and moan about wearing it for 10 minutes at the market? Get over yourselves.”

Meanwhile, Taylor will release his debut solo album ‘CMFT’ on October 2. The record, which was announced last week (July 29), will feature a mix of newly written songs and tracks that date back to his teens.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman originally planned to release the album in 2021, but brought it forward after the coronavirus pandemic cancelled Slipknot’s 2020 touring plans.

Two songs from the record have been shared already – the Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie-featuring ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black Blue Eyes’.
