Frusciante and Flea Dublab Show

Last night, RHCP’s John Frusciante and Flea hosted a two hour show on Dublab. They were selecting and playing tracks which influenced them in their youth, and while it was mostly music, there was some chat and reminiscing in-between with a couple of Chili Pepper anecdotes thrown in.

Longer version with some songs although it’s not the full thing:

RHCP Cairo Documentary

Update on the Cairo/ Pyramids Concert/ Documentary. URGENT ACTION NEEDED! Please help try to get a change of decision! (Details below).

Sadly, this has now been pulled by RHCP’s management and currently will NOT be released due to the change in band members.

So many of us would love to have that documentary and we’ve been looking forward to its release. We saw the live footage of the concert at the time and it was amazing. And there’s the interviews, etc. which we haven’t seen. I know people were looking forward to it even more given the cancellation of the upcoming US shows (and expected cancellation of the others) and there was a lot of excitement about the news it was coming yesterday (this is why the post about it was removed).

If you would like to see this, please could you message ASAP Flea and Chad on their social media accounts and especially RHCP’s management- there is a chance we could get this decision reversed today if enough people say they would like it:

Flea Interviewed for “The Trap Set”

Flea was interviewed for ” The Trap Set with Joe Wong.” It is mostly personal stuff, taking about memories, reading/authors, Acid For The Children, etc.  There is limited mention of the Red Hot Chili Peppers but he talks about them writing and working with John (about 52 minutes in).

Bottlerock Postponed

It’s no surprise that festivals where RCHP were due to play were under threat due to this wretched virus, and the first one to postpone is Bottlerock. It will now be held at the beginning of October. Other dates are affected too- just waiting for confirmation on which ones.

New Chad Smith Interview

RHCP’s Chad Smith has been interviewed by Jacksonville.com. The interview mostly talks about his drum art, but there is a brief mention of RHCP:

“He was on his way to band practice with funk-rock legends the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who recently started working on a new album.

“It’s too early to know what the album’s gonna be yet,” Smith said. “We just started everything.”

But one thing’s set: the band lineup. After a decade apart, the band’s founding guitarist Jon Frusciante re-joined the group at the end of last year.

“We’re seeing how everyone’s vibing, taking it easy,” Smith said of the adjustment. “We’re familiar with Jon but it’s been ten years. It’s been pretty easy, pretty seamless.”
