Perry Farrell

Perry Farrell created and produces the popular twenty year old music festival Lollapalooza. Farrell is also the lead singer of alternative rock band Jane's Addiction. Jane's Addiction gained popularity in the 90's with such hits as "Jane Says" and "Been Caught Stealing." The rock band was ranked 35th on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock list. They have released four studio albums, and the most recent, The Great Escape Artist was released a few months ago in October of 2011. Check out the "Irresistible Force" video from this album here. Perry has also fronted bands Porno for Pyros and Satellite Party (with his wife, Etty).
I recently asked Perry what he is currently reading.
He tweeted, "Brought Jobs on this trip."
Of course he means the best selling biography of Apple founder, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.

I know about the band, but I've never heard any of their songs, I must check them out at YouTube :)

happy new year, Kelly! I hope you've managed to take down those xmas decorations today (so you can cross it off your goals list :)
Have to check out this band, for sure. Been wanting to read Jobs' book too! Gosh, my TBR list is just not getting smaller.

I noticed that we just got the Jobs book in our school library. I heard it was excellent.

I hadn't heard of him before. This is such a cool series that you're doing, Kelly. I bet Jobs is a pretty interesting read!

Kelly Polark said...

Missed P- You'll probably need to get on the waiting list to read it!
Lynn- Thanks, and yes, I've heard it's a very interesting read!

Now I want to know what he thought of the biography. I'm itching to read it.

I've been wanting to read this book. Now I'll have to!

Sounds like a great choice - my husband loves to read autobiographies, too.
