Red Hot Chili Peppers fansite, news page and forum with dedicated RHCP magazine scan and articles section featuring Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea Michael Balzary, Josh Klinghoffer and John Frusciante.
Anthony Kiedis was interviewed for Y108 prior to the band playing their show at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton. Usual questions and then it gets really random. And AK is either tired or not into it. You can view video clips from the interview or listen to the whole thing here: Y108 Video Interview
There’s also a very brief interview with Josh Klinghoffer for 24 Hours Vancouver. Josh talks about meeting RHCP back in the day when he was playing with Bob Forrest. It cuts off abruptly so it seems like this is just a section- hopefully the whole interview will come out soon!
A brief snippet of a video has been released which is apparently from the original video for ‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie’ that was directed by Kreayshawn but ditched in favour of a second video that was released:
“We had one sort of failed attempt at making a video for this song, which was indoors and just kind of dark and dank and not really fun or anything, so we thought, ‘Let’s go with the opposite of that.’ And the opposite of that was a rooftop.”

The snippet shows a couple of live scenes of the band and then a scene where Anthony Kiedis shuts the door on an ambulance containing a girl and Josh Klinghoffer. Anthony turns to the camera and shrugs his arms. Both Klinghoffer and Kiedis are dressed as medics.

Josh talks about the perils of being recognised as a member of the Chili Peppers (blame AK and Flea hehehe) and that they are normal people who need to eat, etc. and that it would be nice for some fans to recognise that. He extends that to chat about the differences fame brings now he’s actually in the band as opposed to being a friend of the band/additional guitarist. He also talks about the long-standing friendships in the band and how they are still all very enthusiastic about what they do and show no desire to stop being RHCP.
I think it’s working and it’s still growing and the most important thing is the three of them are three of the greatest people I could ever consider friends.
Josh Klinghoffer has been interviewed for Winnipeg Free Press. There’s a brief history of the band and then a short interview with Josh where he talks about working with the band, the mundane trials of touring versus the feeling you get when playing liv,e and Chris Cornell’s death.
