No, he is. There's literally nothing good that he does. He's not a good vocalist, he's not good at writing melodies, and he's probably one of the worst rock lyricists ever.

But, RHCP without Frusciante is pretty sucky. I understand the criticisms of Keidis but RHCP are those 4 guys and nobody else*. Keidis is a fun frontman and when I saw them live I couldn't even tell that he couldn't sing. All I knew is that every member of the band was working their ass off onstage and it fucking rocked. The people in the far corners of the nosebleeds seemed to think so, too.


*since as long as it's mattered anyway

I dont think you can really 'sing' to a Hot Pepper song. so its a plus that Keidas kinda shouts his lyrics out in most, makes them sound nice and rebellious.

Pretty much how I feel about it.

John really doesn't like the fans too much. He always seems like everything is a pain in the ass. Like he would prefer to just play to a empty stadium. He says he doesn't like autographs. One time he said he wasn't that big a fan of funk. He is like sid barrett , except he can still make music after losing his mind. In fact has made far more music then he ever did. Well, at least maybe this means they can do one hot minute live again. one hot minute is RHCP'S pop. In fact the i have been on their forums and its exactly like this one. Setlist stinks,OHM stinks, the entire last 10 years stink etc. Ironic the harsh criticism directed at the chilli peppers considering its the same exact criticism directed at u2 by the anti-u2 people that people bitch about on here. Please, i love bono, but he's far more a love em or hate em guy then anthony k. is.

Which wouldn't be as much of a problem if his lyrics weren't astoundingly horrid.

I personally like some RHCP. Don't care for Keidis, but I can put up with him.

Man, Brau would've loved this thread.

The only thing that Kiss had going for themselves was good merchandising. Otherwise, they sucked. They sucked so much they couldn't even cut a "live" album because they kept fuckin up during the shows they were attempting to record for said album. Instead, they went into the studio and edited the songs so that they sounded live. Hence, Kiss Alive. Ace Frehley was a good guitarist, but drugs did him in and he was fired from Kiss. When I think of Kiss, I think of blood, pyro and make up. I sure as fuck DON'T think of music.


RHCP deserve it more than Kiss.

Here's a song to sing to mad1: Under the Bridge- Ever heard of that one?

Of course. Anthony Kiedis is more hate 'em/hate 'em than love 'em/hate 'em.

I'm shocked that people defend him at all. He just writes the most consistently shitty lyrics of any popular band I can think of.

I think you need to tell us how you really feel about Anthony. I get this wacky feeling that you're holding back.


Once RHCP hit their stride in the late 80's with Mother's Milk, they put out some pretty solid albums over the next dozen or so years. But then again, I'm a fan of the group. Not someone who just says how much I hate them and stuff. Spreading the hate just ain't my bag. Did Anthony Kiedis shit in your cornflakes when you were like 10 or something? Why the hate, bro?

They're not the most consistent band out there and I don't care for Keidis' singing all that much (especially live). But I quite like their later albums and some earlier singles.
