At SXSW ’07, one of the bigger trends was a staggering parade of rock’s legendary names promoting their new endeavors, and doing so in a grassroots manner not far removed from the hordes of first-record bands roaming around Austin. One such star was Perry Farrell, who has not only reemerged with the resurgence of Lollapalooza, but is also out on the road with his new band, Satellite Party. And, like Pete Townshend, Perry popped up all over town, joining Rage Against the Machine/Nightwatchman guitarist Tom Morello at the Parish along with Slash and Les Claypool on Friday night. Farrell talked about that all-star jam, the launching of his Satellite Party, and even a bit of politics with SPIN.com’s Peter Gaston.
