RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
STILL PUTTING THE JAM INTO EVERYONE’S MUSICAL SANDWICH
THERE’S AN idea in Hollywood that you do ‘one film for them [the studio] and one for you’, suggesting that giving people what they want provides you with the leverage to indulge in personal passion projects. It’s a philosophy that the Chills continue to adopt in their live shows, as the LA veterans gild their hits-strewn sets with the kind of funk work-outs that people negatively associate with them. Admittedly, tonight they exercise uncharacteristic restraint, but we still have to go through ‘jams’ before opener Can’t Stop. Such indulgences are made more palatable by the fact it’s all imbued with the kind of energy and vim that can’t be cultivated in a practice room — not to mention a little charm (“Make me a bed of mud, I’ll sleep next to you tonight,- purrs frontman Anthony Kiedis after Dark Necessities). Meanwhile, the unbeatable trio of Californication, Under The Bridge and By The Way provides some of the weekend’s most unifying moments. (JH)
Notes: This was a private concert e.g. competition winners were able to attend. It was the first concert in Germany to be filmed in 360 degrees.
For those watching the live stream in Europe- it seemed that US IP addresses were blocked- there were mixed results. Some streams (with the 360 degree camera?) were giving really fuzzy results with lagging sound but other streams (traditional cameras?) were giving excellent quality- which is why my screen shots are from the latter half of the concert as initially I was battling with the poor quality stream until I found out about the other link. A couple of screen shots from the poorer live stream:
RHCP’s drummer Chad Smith’s art work is featuring in a multimedia exhibition at the Orange County Great Park, Orange County. The exhibition is entitled RHYTHM and features art work from four celebrities produced in a collaborative project by SceneFour. Along with Chad Smith the featured artists are Bill Ward (Black Sabbath), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Fantamos) and Chad Sexton (311).
Exhibition Runs: Saturday September 3rd to Sunday November 13th 2016 Price: Free/All ages Location: Great Park Gallery
… Well, Anthony Kiedis goes robot at least! (Flea seems to have a white face in some of the photos too but I guess we’ll have to wait and see!).
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have recorded the video to accompany the second single, ‘Go Robot’, from their new album The Getaway.
Tell me now, I know that it just won’t stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don’t care where I’ve been
You’ve got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin.
Many thanks to everyone who sent me links and especially Shalhevet for putting things into one file! I’m not sure of the origins for these photos so please contact me if you wish to be credited (or have a photo removed).
