Eric Avery Discography
|The 11th Hour (score)|
|bands Eric Avery has been in|
|guest appearances by Eric Avery in other bands|
Released April 8, 2008 on Dangerbird Records, Eric's debut solo album features a dozen quality songs, and notable guests such as Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters (drumming on several selections), Shirley Manson of Garbage (on the duet "Maybe"), and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers (playing trumpet on a song). Also lending a hand were Eric's old bandmates Biff Sanders (from Polarbear) and Mark Pritchard (who briefly played guitar in Jane's Addiction in the early days before Dave Navarro). And funny enough, Chris Chaney, who replaced Eric in a reunited incarnation of Jane's Addiction, also appears on a song.
Fans got their first taste of the album's songs when Eric performed an acoustic version of "Sun's Gone" (then under the working title "Animals") on Navarro's Camp Freddy Radio show on February 5, 2005. The first emphasis track was "All Remote and No Control", appearing on the label's website in May 2007, nearly a full year before the album's eventual release date. A music video for the song was also made (YouTube link). In the album's opener, "Belly of an Insect", astute fans may notice some lyrics pulled from an unreleased 1997 Polar Bear song of Eric's called "Nubong".

bands Eric Avery has been in-
Eric's first real band, formed when he was still in high school. Eric played bass and sang some songs. They recorded a couple demos in 1983. The first demo is currently lost and uncirculated. The second demo was found and "released" in 2006, currently available to hear on the band's MySpace (with the exception of the last track, which was a sloppy instrumental and not deemed worthy of transferring from the master reel.)
1. Rememberance (written by Jack Gould, sung by Eric Avery)
2. Transitive Times
3. Rainbow Girl (written and sung by Eric Avery)
4. Throw It Away
Yellow Dog Contract
Jane's Addiction (original run)
Jane's Addiction (reunion)
guest appearances by Eric Avery in other bands-
After recording Ritual de lo Habitual in early 1990, Eric had some downtime before the album came out and touring began. During this time, he lent a hand to Daisy Chamber, though the extent of his involvement is unclear, as far as recording and performing with them. The band also included Michael Murphy, whom Eric would team with again a few years later in Deconstruction.
