Perry Farrell hinted at Porno for Pyros merging with Jane’s Addiction for an upcoming Las Vegas residency at his Kind Heaven destination he is working on in a recent Rolling Stone interview.

What’s the future of Jane’s Addiction?

Jane’s will come back, and we’ll be the first resident [performers] in Kind Heaven. I have them on board. And Porno for Pyros, too. Porno for Pyros will be within Jane’s Addiction. And I’m putting together an orchestra.

And now you’ve invested your own money in Kind Heaven, the elaborate multimedia, augmented-reality destination you’re working on in Las Vegas. Why?

In Vegas, they want skin in the game. I felt like, “Whoa, I’m really dealing with some tough dudes here.” Like, at the last minute, they go, “No, I need money from you!” And at first I was like, “No, you don’t pull that shit on me.” But now, I can look at all my partners, and if anybody fucks with me, I’m gonna say to them, “Look, I’m a true partner here. I’m not a little kid anymore where William Morris or Live Nation is my daddy.”

You had a rough relationship with your dad and left home at 17 – how does that affect the way you raise your kids?

As busy as we are, our first consideration is our family. You’re a shepherd. If you lose a sheep, a sheep can get messed up. I remember coming out to California and how many wrong situations I got in. I just told my wife, Etty, about the time where I went on this one yacht and I was – honestly – I was an escort. And she goes, “Wait a minute. …” And I said, “Well, you know, Etty, it wasn’t like I signed up and I knew that I was going to end up an escort!” You’re alone in the world, and people prey on you. And you’re thinking, “A yacht? Yeah! All the booze you can drink!” My girlfriend at the time bailed on me for the guy who owned the yacht. I can laugh about it now, too, because I don’t know where the hell she is, but I guarantee she’s not on that yacht anymore.

    I got to see Jane’s Addiction in the early 90’s. Luckily it was before Lollapalooza, it was at a University. I hate big festival shows personally, i actually prefer nightclub shows. Where you can see the band close up. My friend who took me was in a local band and then moved to Portland and was in Everclear. Do people know of them anymore? They were huge but just for a short time. I miss the 90’s, the music scene was so much fun. My roommate and I did promoting so we got to bring some great bands here from all over, punk rock, ‘grunge’ rockabilly and “alternative”. It’s really disconcerting to realize how old we all got to be (the ones who lived)since i still feel half my age, like the same music, etc. Aging is a dirty trick God plays on us.
