Stephen Perkins @ the release of El Ritual de Jane's Addiction book in Chile

#1 Post by parklife03 » Mon Sep 16, 2019 11:13 am

Hi everyone! As some of you might remember, a few days ago I announced that I was going to host a release of my book in Santiago de Chile, with two Chilean journalists (I'm from Argentina; so I flew down to Chile for this).

But there was more than that: since July I had been talking with Stephen Perkins, to have him at the event. He was going to perform a drum clinic the following day in Santiago, so we scheduled this book presentation around that.

It was an amazing evening. We both got to Santiago with delayed flights, so we had to run. I picked him up at his hotel and we went to the event.

When we got there, Stephen not only appeared (as a surprise for the audience!) and spoke for two hours, but he also did a drum mini-show. At the end, I gave him an award to recognize his drumming and his involvement in the book.

He had an amazing predisposition and it was surreal. I'm really grateful.

Here are a few videos and pictures .You can check the whole gallery at the Facebook page of the book: https://www.facebook.com/pg/elritualdejanesaddiction

Thank you all! Everything was streamed live, so I guess I'll get the vídeos soon and I'll upload them.
Hope I can release the book in USA soon :tiphat:

No, but he said that having someone writing a book like this, living so far away from the band, lighted their sparkle to do some things. Maybe shows, but I don't think a new record :sad:

Man, I can't believe he went to Mexico City while I was there and missed it :nyrexall:
Wonder if I will ever meet him?

I find your amateur-hour stalking quite disappointing.
