Perry Farrell Lists His Top Lollapalooza Moments

The legendary festival founder recalls Body Count's epic showing years back and gives props to Lady Gaga's hardcore fans

Conceived in 1991 by Jane's Addiction frontman Perry FarrellLollapalooza has continued its tradition of bringing together rock and music fans for over 20 years. Sitting down backstage with Fuse host Esteban Serrano at this year's festival, Farrell named some of his favorite Lolla moments.

"Watching Body Count go over was a highlight. They had this song, 'Cop Killer.' Now, I'm not for killing cops, but it's freedom of speech, right? They got into it with Tipper Gore," Farrell explained, referring to Gore's infamous "Parental Advisory" stickers and crackdown on explicit lyrics. "We took them out with us, anyway, and it was just a great time that we had together. I miss those guys."

In addition to Eddie Vedder jumping into the crowd via the speaker stacks, Farrell also highlighted Lady Gaga's inspiring sets that caused her "adoring fans" to rip her to shreds.

"I remember seeing her audience when the doors opened. These kids came running at top speed to hold onto the barricades so that they could see her that night. So where are these kids gonna take a pee? Where did they pee?"

Some questions just aren't meant to be answered.
