Stephen Perkins @ the release of El Ritual de Jane's Addiction book in Chile

Hi everyone! As some of you might remember, a few days ago I announced that I was going to host a release of my book in Santiago de Chile, with two Chilean journalists (I'm from Argentina; so I flew down to Chile for this).

But there was more than that: since July I had been talking with Stephen Perkins, to have him at the event. He was going to perform a drum clinic the following day in Santiago, so we scheduled this book presentation around that.

It was an amazing evening. We both got to Santiago with delayed flights, so we had to run. I picked him up at his hotel and we went to the event.

When we got there, Stephen not only appeared (as a surprise for the audience!) and spoke for two hours, but he also did a drum mini-show. At the end, I gave him an award to recognize his drumming and his involvement in the book.

He had an amazing predisposition and it was surreal. I'm really grateful.

Here are a few videos and pictures. You can check the whole gallery at the Facebook page of the book: https://www.facebook.com/pg/elritualdejanesaddiction

Perry Farrell this year upped the Enit Festival an all-night rave/concert, which enjoyed its first date at the very corporate-sounding PCN Bank Center in New Jersey Saturday.

....Perry Farrells own Porno group put in a far more adventurous set than their gig last month at Irving Plaza. They stretched their songs out with new African, dance, psychedelic, and jazz jams, to create some of the most original music being made today. The result had all the cutting edge Farrell desired. Better, it offered the rare chance to see one man's cracked vision rule the day.http://www.nydailynews.com/archives/nyd ... e-1.748661 NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Monday, August 19, 1996
