Happy Birthday RHCP!

They were asked to play an opening song by friend Gary Allen at his Rhythm Lounge in L.A. Anthony Kiedis has recently been to see Grandmaster Flash and knew that he didn’t have to be able to sing in order to front a band, he could rap! AK’s poem about his friends and life he had witnessed in Los Angeles fitted perfectly to a riff Flea was playing and thus the first Chili Peppers’ song, ‘Out in LA’ was written for the gig’… And a suitably over the name top, Tony Flow & the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem,was penned for the occasion. High on drugs and adrenaline, the group went out and played their one song… and blew the audience away! So much so, they were asked to return the following week with two songs; they did and with the new name of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and thus the legend was born!!!

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up AnthonyKiedis.net along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
