Last night (Friday 5th February) the Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first live gig of the year- it was a benefit concert for a US presidential candidate, Bernie Saunders- at the Theater connected to the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. It wasn’t a full concert and apparently there were massive problems with the sound according to my friend who was there.

BTW Josh appears to have dyed his hair red! My friend who was there said about it when she phoned me and it does look red on the videos! Update: Have just been told that it was done as a tribute to David Bowie.

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.
