SHOWS HAD ALL THESE PUNK ROCK KIDS AND THEY WERE ALL EXTRAS YEAH LIKE CHIPS AND EVERYTHING EVERY TELEVISION SHOW HAD PUNK ROCK EXTRAS AND THEY WERE ALWAYS BAD GUYS AND YOU KNOW AND THEN THEY CHANGED THEIR LIFESTYLE AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE I JUST REMEMBER CHIPS IT WAS SO FUNNY BECAUSE THE GUY WENT FROM THEIR PUNK ROCKING AND HE GETS UP AND SINGS CELEBRATION ERIC ESTRADA I WAS ONE OF THOSE EXTRAS, THAT WAS WHAT I DID FOR A TIME, AND CARAN WE WERE ALL REALLY ON SPEED AND COKE AND HEROIN AND EVERYTHING ELSE BUT CARAN CUT EVERYBODY'S HAIR AND AND DEALT SPEED AND HEROIN AND COKE AND EVERYTHING ELSE BUT WE ALL GOT TOGETHER AND WE ALSO WERE MUSICIANS YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE PUNK ROCK WORLD IN THOSE DAYS WAS ABOUT YOU KNOW YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BE A GREAT MUSICIAN, YOU JUST HAD TO HAVE HOOTZPAH YOU HAD BALLS YOU HAD TO HAVE A STORY, YOU HAD TO HAVE COURAGE AND THEN YOU WERE ACCEPTED AND SO I GOT IN WITH THOSE GUYS AND I STARTED SINGING FOR THIS GROUP PSI COM WE FORMED THIS GROUP PSI COM AND WE WERE VERY INTO JOY DIVISION AND THE CURE AND ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN ALL THE POST PUNK STUFF, SLIGHTLY GOTH BUT I WAS IN THAT GROUP FOR A WHILE BUT YOU KNOW THE PRESSING SONGS THAT I WAS WRITING AND THE PRESSING SOUNDS AND THE DEPRESSING LOOK DIDN'T LAST LONG BECAUSE I WAS HAVING TOO GOOD OF A TIME SO I HAD TO DO SOMETHING NEW AND GET OUT OF THIS DEPRESSION AND I FORMED JANE'S ADDICTION FROM THERE, THAT WAS AROUND 1984-1985 AND YOU MET ERIC AVERY AND YOU STARTED IT TOGETHER THE BASS PLAYER -YEAH ERIC AUDITIONED PSI COM HAD ALL KIND OF TROUBLES BECAUSE AS I SAY IT WAS DOOMED FROM THE START BECAUSE IT WAS DEPRESSIVE AND IT HAD RELIGIOUS PEOPLE IN THE GROUP WEREN'T THOSE PEOPLE WHO JOINED CULTS AFTER THEY LEFT THE BAND NO, THEY WERE ALREADY IN CULTS I HAD A GUY WHO WAS A KRISHNA DEVOTEE BUT HE WAS ALSO RUNNING GUNS AND AMMUNITION INTO THE PHILIPPINES STRANGE JUXTAPOSITION BUT HE WOULD SIT THERE AND HE WOULD PRAY TO KRISHNA ALL DAY LONG AND HE WOULDN'T HAVE SEX WITH GIRLS AND THAT WAS WHERE WE BRANCHED OFF SO I FELT LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO GET INTO BLACK MAGIC THEN IF THAT'S YOUR THING, I'M GOING TO GET INTO BLACK MAGIC AND THAT'S WHEN I STARTED STUDYING ALL THE BLACK MAGIC BOOKS AND I WAS STUDYING THAT JUST TO PISS THIS GUY OFF WHO WAS THIS PRUDISH KIND OF HINDU GUY THAT WAS IN THE GROUP ACTUALLY A VERY NICE GUY HE WAS JUST, I FELT, CONFUSED HE HAD LEFT HIS WIFE, HIM AND HIS WIFE HAD BROKEN UP AND YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES MAN SOMETIMES WHEN YOU BREAK UP WITH YOUR WIFE YOU GO INTO A TAILSPIN YEAH ABSOLUTELY, I'VE BEEN THERE I'VE BEEN DIVORCED BEFORE SO I KNOW WHAT THAT'S ALL ABOUT YOU KNOW GOD BLESS HIM, I WISH HIM ALL THE BEST BUT ANYWAY JUST TO BE A PUNK THAT'S WHAT I STARTED GETTING INTO AND I SAID YOU KNOW LET'S GET SOMETHING EXCITING AND ENTHUSIASTIC HERE SO I STARTED JANE'S ADDICTION AND I WAS INSPIRED BY AT THE TIME THE CHILI PEPPERS WE'RE HANGING OUT IN OUR SCENE AND I JUST SAW THEY WERE HAVING SO MUCH FUN I SAID YOU KNOW HELL MAN LET ME IN AND THEN I KNOW IT WAS COOL BECAUSE DAVID STEVEN CAME FROM THAT OTHER SIDE AS WELL DAVE WAS ON THE SHOW AND HE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE SAID ON THE SHOW ABOUT A YEAR AGO HE THOUGHT WHAT WAS SO COOL ABOUT IT WAS THE FACT THAT YOU GUYS WERE ALL COMING MUSICALLY FROM DIFFERENT PLACES IS WHAT MADE JANE SPECIAL HE WAS COMING FROM THE METAL, -THAT'S WHAT HE SAID SPEED MENTAL, THEY HAD A GROUP CALLED DISASTER AND THEY WERE ALL ABOUT LIKE RED AND WHITE STRIPES AND BANDANAS YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN THEY WERE ALL COMING OUT OF THE GAZARRI'S THING BUT I SAW THIS RAW TALENT IN THEM AND I THOUGHT YOU KNOW WHAT IT'D BE ALMOST BETTER TO HAVE SOME CATS WHO DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS SCENE BECAUSE I'VE ALWAYS SAID IT DOESN'T TAKE A LOT TO CHANGE OR ALTER MUSIC OR ART IT ONLY TAKES A LITTLE BUT IT TAKES A LITTLE AND SO WHAT YOU DO IS YOU BRING IN, YOU INFUSE THINGS YOU KNOW AND THEREFORE YOU CREATE A HYBRID OF IT YOU KNOW PEOPLE LIKE FAMILIARITY BUT IF YOU THROW JUST SOMETHING THAT THEY HAVEN'T EXPECTED OR IT COULD BE SOMETHING THAT THEY KNOW OF BUT THEY WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD APPEAR THERE YOU HAVE THEIR BEGINNINGS OF A REVOLUTION AND A NEW SOUND AND THAT'S WHAT JANE'S ADDICTION DID BECAUSE AT THAT POINT NOBODY HAD INFUSED A HARDER EDGE OF HARD ROCK AND METAL JUST THAT EDGINESS TO IT AND EVEN YOUR VOCAL STYLE WHICH PEOPLE HAD SAID REMINDED THEM A BIT OF ROBERT PLANT AND EVEN MORE AND I THINK THAT WAS REALLY COOL HE'S GREAT, I KNOW YOU'RE A BIG ZEPPELIN FAN AND IT WAS JUST SO COOL CAUSE WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD JANE'S WHAT WAS IT THE TRIPLE X RECORD AND THEN OF COURSE WHEN THE REST OF THE WORLD GOT TO HEAR YOU GUYS IT WAS NOTHING SHOCKING, IT REALLY BLEW PEOPLE AWAY AND YOU GUYS MADE IMMEDIATE FANS AND YOU DIVIDED PEOPLE WHICH I THINK ALL GREAT BANDS DO THE RAMONES DID IT, YOU KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE HEY I'M TELLING YOU RIGHT NOW IF YOU CAN'T HAVE AN OBJECTIVE HATRED FROM SOME PEOPLE YOU DIDN'T DO IT YEAH, YOUR RIGHT IF YOU WERE JUST OKAY GOOD, YOUR NEVER GOING TO BE REMEMBERED HONESTLY I THINK ABOUT WHAT JANE'S ADDICTION DID AND HOW THINGS EXPLODED, AND NOTHING SHOCKING WHAT AN INCREDIBLE RECORD, I MEAN WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE FIRST RECORD TWO AND IT HAD THE LIVE VERSIONS OF ROCK AND ROLL, PIGS AND ZEN STARTED OUT ON THERE BUT SONGS LIKE JANE SAYS WHICH WAS ACTUALLY BASED ON YOUR FRIEND JANE YEAH, YOU KNOW SHE CAME UP TO ME ONE TIME YEARS AGO SHE SAYS HEY

ARISTOCRATIC FAMILY A LOT OF TIMES THOSE ARISTOCRATS ARE THE MOST TWISTED PEOPLE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, IN THE WORLD AND JANE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS SHE IS VERY WELL VERSED AND HAS A GREAT DEAL OF KNOWLEDGE IN ART AND LITERATURE HOWEVER, SHE LOVED TO HANG OUT WITH 14 YEAR OLD ILLEGAL ALIEN DRUG DEALERS AND HAVE BRIE AND WINE ON SUNDAYS SO THERE WAS THAT REAL KIND OF JUXTAPOSITION IT'S A STRANGE ONE AND SHE'LL LAUGH ABOUT IT YOU KNOW YOU BRING IT UP LIKE HEY JANE YOU REMEMBER THE TIME AND SHE WILL LAUGH ABOUT IT BUT SHE IS DEFINITELY A FEMME FATAL SPEAKING OF -BUT I LOVE YOU JANE IT

It aired September 2nd.
I'm not sure exactly when the interview took place.
There's a wealth of info in there and it's well worth taking the time to read it. :reading:
I never knew Perry was an extra on the TV show CHIPS.
That's also the most I've heard on the Psi-Com break up.

I think that's the right episode based on the interview but I don't see Perry.
Here's a link for some info on that episode:
