Jim DeRogatis Pisses Off Perry Ferrell In Glorious Fashion (Lollapalooza Line-Up Leaked!)

Jim DeRogatis, the lovable scamp who co-hosts "Sound Opinions" and writes about music for the Chicago Sun Times, has challenged Lollapalooza founder Perry Ferrell (I so wish it was "feral") before, and the former Jane's Addiction leader has responded with his own special retorts, but lord knows what will happen now the D-Rog has gone ahead and leaked the entire 2008 Lollapalooza line-up on his Sun-Times Blog. Perhaps Ferrell will now make us listen to Satellite Party sets for nigh on two hours, or subject us to his nonsensical, stoned-out philosophical treatises about the environment. Don't get me wrong, I've made plenty of those in my day. I've just had the good judgment to not do so in front of 100,000 drunk, sunburned people.

The Chicago-heavy lineup, both large (Kanye West, Wilco, Lupe Fiasco) and small (OFFICE, Kid Sister, The Cool Kids), is always appreciated but, sadly, there's only one Minnesotan act, Mason Jennings. Boo-urns, I say.

Every time I hear Jim DeRo's voice on Sound Opinions I want to punch his face in.

Every time. Without fail.
