I think Perry will theme his outfit accordingly. I think he will wear a mechanics jumpsuit, made of leather or silver lamé. Or, a driver outfit with Coors logo all over.

When Toronto had the Molson Indy(now Honda Indy) I went a couple of times. It was fun. I liked the pit area the best. I should say, I didn't actually pay for the tickets;they were freebies we got through work.

Oh noooo....
My nephew went down to the races in Dover DE. It was still VERY redneck.

Heavy stuff from everyone on here; it's why I enjoy this board so much. Mockbee- I really resonate with what you said; I now often wonder how much I (and us) projected how great Perry really was. I'm starting to think it was lightning in a bottle and the drugs. SR, I would love to hear what those people would say, and I'd throw Rollins in there as well; his liner notes for Kettle articulated how much this band meant to me far better than I ever could have. Hank don't mince words; it'd be interesting to hear what he really thinks. Oy.

I think part of it is that Perry was essentially MARKETED to us as some sort of artistic genius...

On the two Warner albums, he is credited as coproducer along with Dave Jerden? I always thought "really"? And sure, he wrote the lyrics and was in charge of the band's art direction (with Casey)...but judging Jane's on their music, I NEVER for a minute thought that Perry was the "brainchild" behind the band and the other guys just kind of fell in line with him. He wasn't Cobain or Danzig (IE: someone who wrote 95-100% of the output). You could always hear the HUGE influence of the other guys (especially Eric) in the songs and the way they were structured.

The whole "Perry is a genius" angle only got worse when he was pretty much solely credited as creating Lollapalooza (I suppose that's fair) and that he (alone) chose to disband Jane's Addiction in 1991 in order to pursue other artistic endeavours. In reality, Jane's imploded.

On top of that, Perry progressively got more and more magazine covers without a band with him...again, solidifying the idea that was this lone artistic mastermind.

I'm not saying he wasn't a talented guy at one time (and a brilliant self marketer)...but he was a talented guy who had assistance from a circle of very talented people.

We're never going to see Perry sit down in front of an audience and perform on his own with just a guitar or something. :idea:

Absolute gospel, TD, and you brought up a key factor I spaced: Ms. Niccoli. Other people on here have also felt she was a large part of the creativity, and I'd be inclined to agree (I had spaced this http://lonelygirldiaries.tumblr.com out until just now; looks like it fizzled out in August of last year- too bad, as I thought it was enjoyable and had promise).

I wouldn't stress about it too much. The world is full of contradictions and crazy misconceptions.

Jane's (beyond Perry) was great, it served its purpose for me and you and everyone else here, and what they "really were" doesn't matter.

Even "Perry Farrell" -- BEYOND the "REAL" Perry Farrell!!!!! ---- was great. He served a purpose for me in my college age youthful confusion and exuberance. He struck a cord so deep in me and made me Yawp and convulse. That was real, who cares who he "really" was. What I felt was real.

That's all that matters. :nod:

At this point, that would be a step up.

Give a few more years and Janes will be the 38 Special on these types of bills.

Or maybe playing with Garbage a handful of times every couple of years pays a lot more than any of us realize? :noclue:
