Perry Farrell, Lollapalooza Brazil: Alt Icon Talks Festival's Future, Losing Meat Virginity -- Exclusive Backstage Video
Lollapalooza could touch down in Europe some day, says festival founder and Jane's Addiction lead singer Perry Farrell. All someone has to do is actually invite him to bring the alternative music festival there.
"I would like to get to Europe one day," Farrell tells Spinner in an exclusive video interview from Lollapalooza Brazil. "Maybe when I'm old."
Farrell, who has expanded Lollapalooza's reach to Chile and Brazil in the last two years, says it's just a matter of someone in the old world welcoming him.
"I like the idea of going to places where people are, you know it's like a relationship, you want a person that wants you back and you want them to be enthusiastic when they see you," he says. "I just feel like Europe, they have all the festivals -- even though, I betcha I could rock their world -- but it's crowded there. Maybe one day I would like to go, but I would like to be invited to places rather than push my way to places."
In the interview Farrell also says he has been to Brazil five times in the past, and, amongst other things, lost his meat virginity in the South American country.
"I like Brazil," he says. "I like to surf here. The men are macho, the girls are gorgeous, the weather's beautiful, they really appreciate music and life is an adventure."
