Eric Avery with Garbage @ Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Eric Avery

Eric Avery posted the following message today:

its with very mixed emotions i tell you all that im pulling out of NIN. i know. its been a tough call and i don't know if its the right one. but i really want to focus on my musical life here in la, on film work in particular. as the tour dates kept growing... i just got overwhelmed. i just got home from a year of heavy travel with garbage, the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the intensity that nails demands... fortunately my friend Trent understands all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into 2013 and 14. go get em gentlemen.
NIN announced their return earlier this year and have since announced spots at Lollapalooza, Made in America, Outside Lands and new fest Mountain Oasis.

Legit reason. I respect Eric A for his honesty here and on quitting Janes after NINJA tour. The interviews he did on youtube, after quitting Janes, were brutally honest.

He quits Nine Inche Nails after touring with garbage? That's a little harsh calling NIN garbage.

Jane's Addiction is brutally bad

dude is a quitter, but with that I will put mountain song on the turntable and listen to the best bass intro to any song in the history of music.

BV, that is a terribly-constructed headline. I had to read it three times to figure out what the hell it was saying.

it's too bad. would have enjoyed seeing what he would do with the reafashioned NIN. At least Belew is still in, for now.

@ 2:13 Garbage is capitalized, how could you not know what it was talking about

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2013 5:08 PM

Avery is the best bass player but I feel like he's a bit off by saying these guys have no work ethic and no integrity doesn't Eric play for garbage point made
