Back in August, Peter DiStefano was a surprise guest to Jane’s Addiction post-Lollapalooza performance in Chicago, reuniting him with his Porno for Pyros bandmate Perry Farrell. Now it turns out that the one-off cameo could lead to something more.

DiStefano, who was in Seattle Sunday night for a guest turn with the band Bend, told the West Seattle Herald, “I had a meeting with Perry. We’re going to do Porno for Pyros again in 2013.”

The guitarist also revealed how the band got its unique name, explaining, “The Lollapalooza manager for Jane’s Addiction, Stewart Ross, was with Perry Farrell while Perry was looking through a fireworks catalog and go to the centerfold. And Stewart says, ‘Wow. That’s pornography for pyromaniacs.’ And Perry said, ‘That’s great! We’re naming the band Porno for Pyros.”

Distefano also revealed that he has another band called Lance Herbstrong that features himself on guitar with the addition of two DJs. He explained, “We do mashups of songs and I play over it all with, like, Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia. It’s a lot of fun.”
