I just told him, as he was leaving the restaurant (California Vegan), how his book helped me during a period of severe depression. I thanked him for his art and shook his hand. He was grateful and exceptionally humble. You can get the sense that he really is at peace within himself. Cool spirit.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers Thread!!!

I am seriously into this band, but around these here parts there just isn't enough talk about them. They are all (maybe with the exception of Kiedis) very talented and I think they are truly a worthy band to be chatted about for many pages.

So here else out there is a big fan, fan, fanatic, scarily obsessive-compulsive, looking to get into them?

My favourite album is without a doubt By the Way, it was a fantastic collection of songs, and it's closely followed by one of their earlier efforts, Freakey Stylely. Can't Stop is my favourite song.

I saw Chad, Flea (on trumpet), Johnny F and some weird emo-looking keyboardist perform an improvisational 30-minute jam at Fed Square here in Melbourne about two or three years ago and it blew my mind.

Love, love love.

The "weird emo" would be Josh Klinghoffer, a buddy of Frusciante's.

Kiedis makes this band difficult to enjoy, but I love Frusciante, especially his solo work.

I love them, not a fanatic, but yes, love them.
Anthony is really HOT with long hair!

Desecration Smile video makes me LAUGH! I love how high Flea looks!

Top favs are:


Give It Away
Dani California
Scar Tissue
Higher Ground
The Zepher Song

I own Slane DVD and think its great. Also enjoyed their BBC performance months and months back.

He copped some shit from us that night

Glad to see I'm not the only one who isn't a Kiedis fan. Do you know most of Frusciante's solo work, including all his reallly drugged up, Usually Just a T-Shirt work? It's fucked.

Really good band...have most of their albums here on my pc.

On Mercury is one of the best tunes of this decade.

I dislike the commercial, softer sound of their post-One Hot Minute records, despite some solid tracks being on there. By the Way is especially incredibly dull.

Their work in the 80's and early 90's is amazing. Mother's Milk is one of my favorite albums. And I care to believe that One Hot Minute is vastly underrated.

Unfort Punk Rock Classic annoys the hell outta me!

Good Time Boys and Knock Me Down are classics. I especially miss that bizarre Peppers sense of humor that made their early records so special. Since Californication they've taken themselves way too seriously.

Kinda parallels U2's career a bit.
