Perry Farrell threw a press conference on the Internet yesterday and
more than 300 people logged in--but many, many more were turned away.
Despite a myriad of technical glitches, the conference went on as
expectedactually better than expected. According to the Lollapalooza
office, Farrell was so inundated with questions, he was besides
himselfand couldn't begin to answer even one tenth of them.
According to a spokesman, Perry wondered aloud "why anyone would want
to know that." Unfortunately, the aforementioned spokesman
wouldn't elaborate, so you'll just have to wait until later today,
when they post the results of the confab on the net at
http://lollapalooza.com. The Lollapalooza office plans to have many
more of these artist encounters, prior to and throughout the entire run
of the moveable musical smorgasbord. These on-line chats with the
artists are a great idea, and hats off the Heidi Robinson for making
the decision to issue all info regarding Lollapalooza on the Net. Very
