HOLLYWOOD (FOX 11/CNS) - The influential alternative rock band Jane's Addiction received the 2,509th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today.

Drummers John Densmore of The Doors and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters joined band members Perry Farrell, Eric Avery, Stephen Perkins and Dave Navarro at the ceremony in front of Playmates of Hollywood at 6436 Hollywood Blvd.

"We would see movies on this very street when I was a kid growing up, and I never imagined that I would be a part of this legacy with this band," Navarro said.

The band was formed in Los Angeles in 1985. Farrell, its founder and singer, found Avery, the bassist, who then brought on Perkins, the drummer. Navarro was chosen after many guitarists auditioned.

Jane's Addiction became a sensation on the Los Angeles club scene and a staple on the Sunset Strip. It was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States.

Jane's Addiction broke up in 1991 and reunited briefly in 1997 with Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers filling in on bass.

The band reunited again in 2001, first touring with Martyn LeNoble on bass. Following the tour, the group recorded the album "Strays" with Chris Chaney on bass.

The band continues to tour, including performing last week at San Manuel Casino in Highland.

Some of  Jane's Addiction most popular songs include "Ocean Size," "Stop!," "Had A Dad," "Been Caught Stealing," "Three Days," "Classic Girl," "Ripple," "Jane Says" and "Superhero."

The band is named in honor of Farrell's housemate, Jane Bainter, its muse and inspiration.

    Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law a bill making it perfectly legal to bring your dog out to dinner with you. The dog must remain in an outdoor-dining section, be on a leash, behave, and not be in the same area where food is being prepared. The law, which goes into effect Jan. 1 , should provide some relief to dog lovers statewide.
