Farrell: "We were greater than GNR"

Jane’s Addiction were the most underrated band of all time… says Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell.

 

Interviewed in the new issue of Classic Rock magazine, Farrell singles out his own band when asked to nominate the most underrated rock band in history.

“It’s because I went crazy and broke the band up at their height,” he explains. “I was operating on instinct, and I just wanted to get away from those guys back then. I just wanted to do my own thing really bad. [Farrell also lists his post-Jane’s band, Porno For Pyros, as underrated]. But it was an amazing project, and maybe it wouldn’t have been any better. But now I lookd around and think: ‘Damn, I should have been more productive in that area’.”

 

To be fair to Farrell, he has long championed the virtues of his own band, and it might be a little weird if he didn’t believe in their greatness.

“We might not have sold as many records as Guns N’ Roses,” he argued in 2016, “but I’d say we’re every bit as great as Guns N’ Roses – some might argue we’re even greater.”

I can only name 'Been Caught Stealing' Mountain Song' and 'Just Because'.

 

I didn't know Perry Farrell doubled as Janes Addiction lead singer and Tennis player Novac Djokovic.

They are just angry because in the

 Summer of 1991, they broke up for many years,

just before Grunge & Alternative music took over,

and it potentially cost them millions of dollars, as well as notoriety and fame.

 

They cry about it all the time 

 

If I remember correctly,

at the time their music career was getting in the way of their Heroin Addiction  :lol:

 

 

 

I will admit they were really good for a short time, but not better then GNR.

 

The "Nothings Shocking" album is a banger.

And then success destroyed them.

 

 

 

If you want to go on wild ultra realistic

self destructive los angeles junkie trip, 💉

watch the "Gift" movie.

It was the last thing the original band did.

Heroin wasn’t an issue in the band’s stability as much as one would think. The band went to shit because of the stupid rivalry between Perry and Eric over some pussy.

 

I’d say they never quite grasped “success”, so it’s impossible to point that out as something that could have destroyed the band.

They were even greater than gnr, that is absolutely undeniable to anyone who has bothered to pay attention to their music (JA, NS, RDLH).

 

Everything since Strays has been just meh, though.

Not even in the same league much less better. It's absolutely undeniable for everyone who has bothered to listen to both bands.

 

Mainly because of this talentless cunt who sings like a constipated goat.

I get Perry’s voice isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s an acquired taste. Also, it’s a staple and recognizable in its timbre and processing.

 

He can write, though, his lyrics put Axl’s to shame anytime.

 

And if we talk about stage presence and energy, it was insane, I guess like the AFD era small clubs shows, without any of the flamboyant Liberace shit that came later.

 

They went to shit when they lost Eric Avery –their Izzy Stradlin, and had Ezrin produce their next album… big mistake.

Absolutely atrocious voice. To me sounds like a chipmunk being taken apart. I would like them more than I do now if someone else was singing for them. Kind of like Chili Peppers.

Debatable.

Look, I like Jane's mainly because of Dave Navarro's guitar work but no, they weren't better than Guns' at least not nor me..

 

Same goes for Porno For Pyros awesome side-project but would have been much better with someone else.
