4.0 out of 5 stars The best account so far..., 28 Sep 2006
This review is from: Whores: An Oral Biography of Perry Farrell and "Jane's Addiction" (Paperback)
I've been a fan of Perry Farrell for three or four years now and have always felt he was a somewhat underappreciated personality on the rock pantheon. Jane's Addiction also never really got the props they deserved from mainstream audiences, there's being more of a cult following. It's too bad, there is a lot to learn about dynamics, showmanship and simple mysticism from Perry and co. True, Navarro is at times an insufferable buffoon but his guitar is a good deal more eloquent than his mouth. Same to a degree for Perry, whose shamanistic shtick goes a long way to proving that charisma and invention will always be welcome in an industry that approves of the James Blunts of this world. Whores is a colourful and entertaining read, if one can get past the boorish LA scenesters and egos that fly around on clouds. What these guys did had real value. I recommend for fans of the alt rock genre in general. Pick up some tips!
