Coachella 2009: Perry Farrell changes paradigm, mum as to nature of new paradigm
09:40 PM PT, Apr 19 2009

After playing a prancing, preening and charmingly goofy love-fest of a set with Etty, his wife of seven years, and guitarist Nick Maybury, Perry Farrell wiped himself down with a white towel and graciously received questions from the press.

His first Q & A was with celebstoner.com. Eric Bobo of Cypress Hill, who played percussion during his Satellite Party set, joined him to tag-team answer what were surely some of the evening's most awesome questions. When my turn was up, Farrell led me to a shaded alcove and his handlers pulled out two white plastic chairs.

"I used to write for Lollapalooza magazine," I gushed. "So I've interviewed you a ton. I had lunch with you and Norman Lear that one time." He blinked and smiled without recognition. "Your set was great, really fun," I said, recovering my notorious cool. Then he came alive, his eyes flashed warmth and he smiled beneficently. "Thank you so much."

"So you're recording a new Trent Reznor-produced album?" I asked. His eyes flashed and he leaned in close to my ear. I liked that. "That's a rumor I need to dispel," he said sharply. "Albums are, to me, a thing of the past. Except if you're a young group and you have eight songs that you want to go out and perform.

"I don't even believe in selling music," he continued, on a roll now. "I believe in giving it away in creative ways, and beautiful parties and festivals."

So, as it turns out, Farrell informed me, Reznor simply produced a few songs. Two "oldies" and two "newies," one called "Embrace the Darkness." The reason Jane's Addiction doesn't need albums, he said, is because "Jane's is like a classic car. You can chrome it and put gorgeous paint on it. But some things you can't put on it."

Another news flash soon emerged: Farrell is planning a new festival outside of the 18-year-old Lollapalooza. "It's for scene makers and it's called 'Scene Maker,' " he explained. Where and what and how, I asked, excited. "I'm not gonna tell you. I can only tell you it will be a brand new format, a whole new paradigm," he replied. Darn it! Stay cool, Jess, casually pry it out of him.


"So what's the new paradigm?"

"I'm not going to tell you." Face off.

Just then an incredibly drunk woman leaned over his shoulder and whispered something into his ear. He smiled kindly and gestured to his wife and 4-year-old son, Izzadore, "This is my wife and son," he said. "But thank you for the compliment." The woman blushed and giggled and shook my hand. "Nice to meet you," I said, lying.

"She is eating the cookie you ate last night," said Farrell's wife. As the woman wandered off, Farrell giggled, "She is," he said. Then Etty crouched down on her haunches, talking intensely to little Izzadore. Soon she turned to me and said, "My son is having a meltdown. It's time for Dad to take over because I'm done."

"Sorry," I said. "I'm done too."

"No! You can keep talking," she said sweetly, and then turning to Farrell. "He is wanting a tattoo really bad."

"We'll get you one," Farrell said to Izzadore, before hopping in a golf cart in his Cabernet Sauvignon-colored satin pants and driving away into the dusk.
