    OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Can't Wait for Jane's Addiction

    Thank Carrie Underwood's sisters. She credits them for her musical diversity. "We constantly had the radio on all the time," she says of herself and her teenage sisters. "Without them, I wouldn't have been exposed to so much so young." In fact, it sounds like her tastes run a lot deeper than just country music, and so she's hoping to see alternative rockers Jane's Addiction while she's out in Las Vegas performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Friday night (Sept. 23). "That would be a good one to watch," she says of the band. But in a video interview, she also talks about the moment right after her American Idol audition when she knew her life was about to take a crazy turn. "It worked for Kelly Clarkson, why not me?" she said of her rationale for even going to the audition in the first place. "And then after that, it was all just door after door after door being opened." She also says, simply, "I just love to sing." Which is why her fans probably just love to hear her sing.

    I think so - they're not my usual scene, but the music is interesting. They've been around since the 1980s, so Carrie's sisters probably knew them growing up. I'll post audio for anyone interested - but as they're definitely more an "alternative" club band, rather than Pop-oriented, I think it's fair to say that listeners need to persevere with the musical development, rather than expect a catchy instant vibe.
    Personally, I like the long instrumental passages, and am not so keen on the vocals (but each to their own..)

    i'm surprised some of you haven't heard of them. some of you might know their guitarist, Dave Navarro. he was briefly in Red Hot Chilli Peppers (some similarities in the 2 bands) and was (in)famously (depending on how you view it) briefly married to carmen Electra

    definitely. i still bemoan the fact that it's the latter that only gets on mainstream radio these days.
