Perry Farrell, front man of Jane's Addiction, was hardly a force in the rock marketplace three years ago when he recorded these lyrics to "Standing in the Shower . . . Thinking." Standing in the shower thinking About what makes a man an outlaw or a leader, I'm thinking about power . . . The ways a man could use it or be destroyed by it.

DAVE NAVARRO sits on a throne during "Rock Star: Supernova," CBS' summer school of Reality Rock, entertaining those in "American Idol" withdrawal on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through September. Directing the interactions between the show's contestants and the hard rock supergroup they're vying to front, he's as relaxed on network TV as a half-clothed man with multiple piercings and tattoos could possibly be.

Rock Losing Its Grip as Other Genres Gain. That recent headline on a Billboard magazine article documenting rock's dwindling share of the pop album market was sobering, but it wasn't unexpected. It has been clear for some time now that rock is no longer the creative heart of pop music. Rather than reflect the imagination and daring that it did in past decades, most rock deals shamelessly in hollow or recycled gestures--and all too often represents nothing more than casual entertainment.

Clocking in at roughly five minutes, it's indulgently long by the standards of radio. Most of it is a mere two chords, played with merry-go-round monotony. It was never released as a single, nor did it get a promotional push courtesy of an MTV-ready video. But somehow, "Jane Says" just won't die. The song, by California's pre-grunge pioneers Jane's Addiction, pops up incessantly on radio stations nationwide.

The sound hooked Perry Farrell the moment he left the Thai restaurant. "That's a live band," he said, turning toward the adjoining Armenian restaurant in a corner mall east of Hollywood. Through the glass door, he watched as couples filled the dance floor to the insistent wailing of accordion, clarinet, drums and bass. "This is the kind of thing I listen to," said Farrell, who has slipped an occasional Middle Eastern modality into the rock of his own band, Jane's Addiction.

Jane's Addiction's new concert stage is a fanciful riot of tall banners, parasols and giant flowers, tribal masks and bent-pole gazebos. At the right is a garland-strewn deejay booth, at the left a curtained shower. Platforms that will be stationed throughout theaters where the band plays echo the tropical motif.

Mick has his Keith. Axl had his Slash. Bono has his Edge. And in Jane's Addiction, Perry Farrell has his Dave Navarro. These are the guitar-hero sidekicks, the foils to the front men, tight-lipped conjurers who let their fingers do their talking. Not too often does one step out of that role with a substantial words-and-music statement of his own, but more than 10 years after L.A. legend Jane's Addiction broke up, Navarro is finally ready to give it a shot.
