New Magazine Scan Added:Classic Rock August 2011

And still the Red Hot Chili Peppers’s stuff pours in…. 🙂 I’ve just added a full scan and transcript of the current edition of Classic Rock

new line up Red Hot Chili Peppers Flea Chad Smith Anthony Kiedis & Josh Klinghoffer

Here’s an extract:

Quiet and introverted, Josh Klinghoffer is either uncomfortable or unimpressed with the interview process, leaving Kiedis to do most of the talking. At 31, he’s young enough to be one of his bandmates’ sons.
“We tested for that,” says Kiedis with a laugh. “We made sure.”

Klinghoffer: “Age honestly doesn’t come up in my mind. I think I’ve now finally admitted to myself that I’m an adult. Even though I don’t look or act like one most of the time.”

There are trace elements of old school Chili Peppers in The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie, the first single from the album. It’s key line -”I want to rock you like the 80s” – sounds like it’s beamed in straight from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Proving there’s life in the old horndogs yet, this snigger-worthy lyric has already upset the stuffed shirts at the BBC.

“Referencing the 80s is a fun thing to do,” says Kiedis. “Getting cock-blocked for saying ‘cock’ on British radio. British radio does not love the word ‘cock’. Hopefully the original will rise to the surface. Because it is a poignant moment in the song. You can hang your teacup on the word ‘cock’.”

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.
