Red Hot Chili Peppers News icon 23 Mar 2011 - Red Hot Chili Peppers will play in Hong Kong, China during their new tour!
Posted in Red Hot Chili Peppers News by RedHotChiliPeppersNews
Red Hot Chili Peppers will play in Hong Kong, China in 2011!



I met Chad Smith outside the Silverlake Conservatory of Music on March 20th; we were both there to support Flea during the LA Marathon. I asked if there was any new info on the tour and he talked about playing at The Summer Sonic Festival in Japan - as we already know about, AND also said they would play in Hong Kong too! He didn’t give a specific date, but expect it to be close to when they play the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan because of geographic proximity.

18 Feb 2011 - Anthony Kiedis talks to SPIN about the NEW Red Hot Chili Peppers Album 2011!
Posted in Red Hot Chili Peppers News, Anthony Kiedis News by RedHotChiliPeppersNews
Anthony Kiedis talks to SPIN about the NEW Red Hot Chili Peppers Album!
Working Title:
Dr. Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head.



After two years off, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are hard at work on their 10th album, due later this year, and, according to frontman Anthony Kiedis, the time apart has reinvigorated the band.

"I think that during the writing of this record I have been the most open-minded and refreshed than I have been in a long time," Kiedis tells SPIN. "I guess that comes from a much-needed hiatus and becoming a father."

While Kiedis was family focused, bassist Flea studied music theory at USC and played in Atoms for Peace with Radiohead's Thom Yorke, drummer Chad Smith played with all-star rock act Chickenfoot, among others, and, most stunningly, guitarist John Frusciante quit the band in 2008.

"It is always going to change the chemistry and feeling of the music when such a creative force as John Frusciante leaves," Kiedis says. "He was something unique that shaped our sound then, but now I think it's also something fresh and exciting to have a new, incredible musical mind working with us now. We are still the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but we also have to adapt and welcome new opportunities. After all, that is how we've survived all these years."

Josh Klinghoffer, who'd previously toured with RHCP as a backing musician, officially became the group's guitarist last year, following Frusciante's amicable split.

Flea's musical studies, which included him learning the piano, have helped fill the void left by Frusciante, arming the Peppers with "a whole new dynamic," Kiedis says.

"This album has been one of evolution," he adds. "Before, some of our jams were a bit hit-and-miss. On this record, a decent number of songs were actually thought out and planned in a way we had never done before. That is, with Flea's new knowledge of music theory, we explored the writing process with a bit more precision."

Elsewhere, African vibes have also rubbed off on the recordings, thanks to a trip Flea and new bandmate Josh Klinghoffer took to the continent.

While Kiedis won't reveal song details, he agreed to let SPIN in on the album's affectionate working title, inspired by a friend who dropped by the studio:
Dr. Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head.

"He was reminiscing about one of his legendary acid trips, and told us that he had been playing a sold-out show to the planets and moons, and his number-one hit was, well, that title," Kiedis explains. "We found it so funny that we told him for as long as the album was under the radar, that that would be our nickname for it."

Follow Flea's tweets to keep tabs on the progress of the new album, produced by Rick Rubin, who produced their 1991 breakthrough Blood Sugar Sex Magik, among others.

17 Feb 2011 - Anthony Kiedis interviews Rick Rubin for Interview Magazine! Published February 2011!
Posted in Red Hot Chili Peppers News, Anthony Kiedis News by RedHotChiliPeppersNews
Anthony Kiedis interviews Rick Rubin
Red Hot Chili Peppers' frontman Anthony Kiedis Interviews Music Producer Rick Rubin in a new Interview featured in the February 2011 Publication of Interview Magazine! Rubin recently took a break from working with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the band’s forthcoming record—their first since the 2006 double album Stadium Arcadium—to sit down with the group’s singer, Anthony Kiedis, to discuss the connection between mind, body, and music.



Excerpt from Interview:

ANTHONY KIEDIS:
Have you noticed a change in your outlook toward creativity since you have become highly physical?

RICK RUBIN:
I’d say probably the biggest change is that I have more energy, and that probably is a good thing. And maybe I’ll think about things from different angles. But I feel like my commitment to creativity has been the one thread in my life, really. All I’ve had is an interest in watching things unfold creatively, I guess. That’s the best way to say it. And I don’t really know how that has changed through this process. [pauses] Hard to say.

Red Hot Chili Peppers News icon 13 Feb 2011 - Happy Birthday RHCP! 28 Years Today! (February 13th 1983)
Posted in Red Hot Chili Peppers News by RedHotChiliPeppersNews
On today's date, February 13th in 1983, 28 years ago, RHCP played their VERY first gig at the Rhythm Lounge in Hollywood! They played Out in LA!



Originally under the moniker of Tony Flow & the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem, their first performance was at the Rhythm Lounge to a crowd of approximately thirty people, opening for Gary and Neighbor's Voices. They "wrote" for the occasion, which involved the band improvising music while Kiedis rapped a poem he had written called "Out in L.A." Since Slovak and Irons were already committed to another group, What Is This?, it was intended to be a one–time performance. However, the performance was so lively that the band was asked to return the following week. Due to this unexpected success, the band changed its name to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, playing several more shows at various LA clubs and musical venues. Six songs from these initial shows were on the band's first demo tape.

Several months after their first performance Red Hot Chili Peppers was noticed by EMI and signed with the record label. Two weeks earlier, What Is This? had also obtained a record deal but with MCA. Slovak and Irons still considered the Red Hot Chili Peppers as only a side project and so they quit to focus on What Is This? Instead of dissolving the band, Kiedis and Flea recruited new members. Cliff Martinez, a friend of Flea's, joined shortly thereafter. Auditions for a new guitarist produced Jack Sherman.
