    He's a great bassist, one of my favorites actually. Good sense of style too. Nothing goes better with a LPB P-bass than purple pants, right?

    No website either :(

    He played with Alanis, as well as Michelle Branch (apparently they were in the same studio and she was looking for a bassist and ran into him) and he did great work on both albums. However, I was listening to Jagged Little Pill the other day and was quite upset to find out that that amazing bass playing wasn't Chris.

    The singer is Steve Isaacs. He was in a band called Skycyle, and they put out an EP and one full length album on MCA. The album is called ones and zeros., and it kicks ass.

    I did a quick search for Chris Chaney and found this thread, so I figured I'd add on.

    Anyway, I'm in Seattle on vacation and I caught Chris Chaney last night at Jazz Alley with Robben Ford. What an amazing show! I'm not real familiar with all of Robben's work but man after that show I'm a fan. Had Michael Landau also on guitar and Gary Novak on drums. Chris was kicking ass on his Sadowsky NYC Vintage 5 and Aguilar rig. He only took one ride but it was smokin. Great band and great show, check them out if they are in your area!

    I'm 80% sure I saw him playing with Peeping Tom (Mike Patton's hip hopish project) on Conan O'Brien.
  11. chris is damn good for sure. but i doubt i'm the only one who seriously misses eric avery when speaking of things janes addiction. his lines were not complicated but man were they cool!
  12. That must have been awesome.... Novak, Landau, Chaney and Roggen Ford... wow... some of my favorite players.

    Ford's 'classic' CD is called 'Talk to Your Daughter'.... just fabulous stuff and great songwriting also. He also does some wonderful work on Joni Mitchell's live CD (Miles of Aisles, or something like that)... he was very young at the time... smokin'.

    Eric is cool. I actually lifted one of his lines years ago and didn't realize it until I heard the playback. Made me go back and listen more carefully to him. What a great band the original Jane's was.

    scuttlebutt on the street is that eric will be the bass player for the reformed smashing pumpkins. talk about full circle (the early pumpkins stuff just screams "nothing's shocking", and one of their earliest gigs was opening for Janes in Chicago)

    One of the things that makes Chris so good is his drive to get better. We were good friends growing up together in Nor Cal and I'd often crash at his place on weekends. That guy used to wake up early after a night of partying, grab his bass and the Real Book and just practice standards by himself for hours. All he wanted to do was play and get better. Still does and that's why his phone rings off the hook to do session work and tour with some of the best musicians out there, no matter the style. One of the funniest and coolest dudes you'll ever meet to boot!
