Jane’s Addiction Reflects On When Smashing Pumpkins Showed Up To Their Show

Jane’s Addiction reflected on a time when Smashing Pumpkins showed up to one of their shows in Denver back in 1992. During a video conversation, Billy Corgan said, “There was almost nobody there. It was like a 100 people. So when you guys came in, about halfway through the show, we were like, ‘God, they’re here!'” He continued, “We all freaked out, because now we were just playing for you guys.”

Meanwhile, Perry Farrell also discussed why Jane’s Addiction decided to release a live recording as a debut. Farrell said, “The idea being, I don’t know if they’ll ever get to hear us as raw and as energized as we are right now. I wanted them to hear us and know of us in our most honest, innocent… I wanted to capture that before anyone could ruin that.”
