Psychic Friend, correct me If I am wrong but, If It wasnt for Perry Farrell, there would be no Coachella. After Coachella 99' was such a lo$$ for Goldenvoice, it looked like the fest would not happen again. When Perry Farrell was asked by goldenvoice to get Janes back together for 2001 and give it one more shot for Coachella, Perry Farrell agreed. Perry asked the rest of the band to get together. Im sure that was not easy for him to do. Mr. Farrell agreed to it because of his admiration for the fest in 99'. The draw from that reunion was what made Coachella able to continue on.Re: Please make Coachella more like Lollapalooza
One thing that (unfortunately) Lolla didn't do better... please, NO MORE Perry Farrell. I don't care if he's there as himself, or as DJ Peretz, or as Janes Addiction, or as Satellite Party, I'm just sooooooo tired of him always being around. Just give us 1 year off, that's all I ask.
I am not a big fan of Peretz, Janes, or any of the other incarnations Mr. Farrell performs in. But I do have a lot of respect for the man and what he has done for the Coachella Fest. I think in 09', the 10th anniversary of Coachella, Perry Farrell should get an Honorary award of some type from Coachella. Am I really the first one to say this?
No Perry Farrell, No Coachella, No Lollapalooza. Those 2 groundbreaking festivals have been pioneers in the current music festival movement happening right now. Without those 2 festivals, the current live music festival scene would still be a dream. A Dream that even corporate sponsors would not want to touch, for many, many obvious reasons.
Thank you Perry Farrell.
