I didn’t have the RHCP book, Body Parts by Grier Govorko, in my collection; it’s out of print and the copies I’ve seen of it have been really expensive. However, my lovely friend in LA saw a second-hand copy in Amoeba and bought it for me! It arrived today. The text is mostly the author describing people and places poetically without any detail of the band, but it contains loads of photos of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on tour. And a lot of photos of intimate parts of Flea’s anatomy – hence I think the ‘Body Parts’ title 😀 There is one photo involving a wine glass that has scarred me for life 😛 Obviously, I can’t post ones here involving nudity but I’ve scanned a few photos to show people what the book is like in case they haven’t seen it (hoping that’s OK as the book is out of print). I’ll put some more AK ones on my Anthony Kiedis website. BTW it’s a Dave Navarro era publication so he is the guitarist shown.
Fab is a long-time friend of Anthony Kiedis and RHCP. He’s named-checked on the Live in Hyde Park album. He lived in LA with Flea and was close friends with the band in their early days… Anyway, Fab recently sent some photos that he came across while searching for something else to Anthony & Flea of them with his son, Angelo. Flea posted a couple of them on his Instagram account.The photo of him with Angelo had the caption, “Who is the mystery baby?” leading to much speculation as to who the baby was.
Fab responded with the same photo now captioned with, “Who are them mysterious dudes holding my baby?” 🙂
I’m posting them here as they are such sweet pics and to clear up who the baby is as there’s been a lot of debate online and some people didn’t know/have missed the answer (and there’s also a recent one of the, now grown up, baby).
Josh Klinghoffer, Chad Smith, and Eric Avery have just performed at Fingerprints Music, 420 E. 4th St., Long Beach, CA as part of Record Store Day. They played three songs.
Many thanks to Angra for these!
There’s a video here of Josh covering T-Rex’s Jeepster.
There are loads more on Louise Schiffmacher’s Instagram account.
Red Hot Chili Peppers make a brief appearance in Post Malone’s “Wow” video. They feature from 0.44 to 0.48 if you would rather go straight to the clip.
There is loads of stuff obviously so I’m picking out a few things here (There’s a dedicated Anthony Kiedis page on AnthonyKiedis.net)

Feeling incredibly blessed to have experienced the last few days in one of the classic seven wonders of the world…the ancient pyramids in Cairo, Egypt. The energy here at this site is unparalleled to anything I have ever felt before. Forever grateful to my brother @chadsmithofficial the rest of the @chilipeppers @flea333 and their amazing crew for an incredible journey… ???

Jump in to about 32 minutes as the livestream started before the concert. You can hear the trumpet but still no visuals- they kick in a couple of minutes later.

Notes: There were issues with power. Flea played Pea when the power first started to fail since it had left Josh Klinghoffer unable to play. Power was then lost completely with the band leaving the stage until the issue was sorted. The audience started to sing songs during the break and were singing Soul to Squeeze when power was restored. Josh started to play along with with the crowd singing. (Thanks to Paul Leske for the info & video.)
Update: There’s a Metro article with more info saying that Anthony Kiedis jumped over the amps to get the message through to fans that the power was down.
