Perry Farrell Shares His Best Lollapalooza Stories

FUSE TV - Perry Farrell Shares His Best Lollapalooza Stories

Jane's Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell is gearing up for his festival's 16th edition this weekend, and amidst all the anticipation he chatted with Fuse about the best tales he's collected along the way. Kicking things off is the story of a brutal mid-concert fight between Farrell and guitarist Dave Navarro backstage. "He finished the show, but we hated each other from that moment for … a long time," Farrell says. Check out the video to hear the rest, including the time Kanye tried to take over Farrell's festival for a minute, and why Steve-O of Jackass fame got arrested.

And while you're getting pumped for Lolla, why not check out our A-Z Guide to the festival?
