You know you’ve got some sort of “power” when you are able to cobble together a show that features the likes ofSnoop Dogg, The Killers and Jane’s Addiction in less than 48 hours. That’s just what Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder and Facebook founding president, played to perfection by Justin Timberlake in ‘The Social Network,’ did.
To celebrate his Spotify service, Parker threw a secret show, aka killer party, at a San Francisco warehouse. He called in favors from big names like Snoop and Perry Farrell and voila! A show was born.
997 Now Radio reports that Lady Gaga was excepted to turn up, but she didn’t!
The show was more than a show. It was an event, with mini donuts, a sushi bar and an ice cream bar, so good times were had by all.
Some highlights: The Killers had to recruit a temporary rhythm section on short notice and they covered ‘Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.’ Jane’s Addiction played a hit parade of classics and invited Parker on stage, with Farrell proclaiming, This is my friend for life.”
Snoop Dogg soared through his biggest hits and requested weed, saying, “There’s a lot of millionaires in here, who’s going to bail me out?” Let’s hope that no one denied Snoop his due!
