Paul was out and about for rock legends Jane’s Addiction. The rock band fronted by Perry Farrell has been a staple on the scene for years and they have finally been the recipients of a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame!
Paul was at the event and has a full recap of the festivities below!
Here we gooooo!!!!!
Today started at 5 am
Knowing I was going to the Jane’s addiction Walk of Fame ceremony
Usually with musicians there is a large annoying crowd who push and scream in your year not the case today
I got to the star location “playmates shoes on Wilcox”
Only to discover they were just getting started with the set up and I stick around and meet a lovely couple from the oc
And a few of the regulars show up and we all marvel at the little turn out there is for such a huge band so the wait begins and the trickling of people come down nothing shocking
Everyone is wondering who the guest speakers are gonna be the possibilities are very broad being that perry Farrell is the king of Lolapalooza and all
So 11:15 comes round and the band starts arriving with their families everyone except perry Farrell and right at 11:30 he shows up with his amazing wife etty and their kids then the ceremony started with Taylor from the foo fighters and standard roasting commenced.
Then it was John Doe from the band X who shared some fun stories and john densmore the drummer from the doors started and he was quite funny then the band spoke now a lot of women were there for Dave Navarro who pretty much ignored the crowd and did a Johnny depp at jerry bruckheimer.
I see him always in Hollywood so no biggie I was looking forward to meeting perry Farrell was the prize now sometimes with these ceremonies the stars don’t even come over after the press interviews but the band excluding Dave Navarro signed for every one real class act perry even had his wife bringing him photos to sign from fans real awesome guy.
Once I said my goodbyes I walked on down the block and saw local tv personality Lu Parker from channel 5 who was covering a story now she was also miss USA 1994 and definitely stunning still
I then proceed to go back to my place and rest for a whole hour until Jane’s addiction performed at a talk show and Ben Kingsley was the guest I arrive around 4:30pm and meet up with a hand full of regulars who are listening to the amazing sound check and we see perry peeking from the backstage area I give a nod like what’s going on and after doing two run throughs the all leave to the jkl green room while passing everyone stops by to sign except Dave Navarro again ignoring his fans but the rest of the band is a+++
Happy Halloween everyone!!!
