Perry Farrell

It was a nerve-wracking experience — covering a band with a lot of buzz for my college newspaper. In 1988, Perry Farrell and Jane’s Addiction performed in a show at Minneapolis’ Seventh Street Entry, the small club connected to First Avenue. I shot the show, then had permission to do the lead singer’s portrait afterwards. I took only a few photos before Farrell cut me off and left. Fortunately, it turned out! The portrait is still one of my favorites.
