JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro tells the Detroit News he hasn't let the reports at many venues that Lollapalooza has been a less-than-stellar box-office performer bother him. "I've never been one for expectations of crowds and turnouts. I am more excited about the bands that we have," Navarro insisted.
