Janeâ€™s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell recently fired off at record labels in an interview with Fuse TV at the Beale Street Music Festival.
Said Perry: â€œI blame the record companies, because I feel that most of the record companies are really lame, and theyâ€™ve done their best to destroy really good music. I donâ€™t say that begrudgingly because Iâ€™m in a good place. Iâ€™ll be fine, but the young musicians are the ones that arenâ€™t getting signed because theyâ€™re not pop idiots, and thatâ€™s the sad part about it. Theyâ€™re trying to find a pop sensation to appeal to tweens, whoever is gonna buy the record. Who buys records anymore? Tweens, because they donâ€™t know any better, they donâ€™t know how to steal a record yet.â€
He continued: â€œIf you go to a festival, those people [alternative rock bands] are filling the bill. So itâ€™s really the record companies that are a bunch of losers and donâ€™t know what theyâ€™re talking about.â€
