Q Magazine Frenzy!

I was very kindly given virtually the entire backlog of Q magazines. I’m wading my way through them looking for RHCP related stuff and today I’ve scanned the things I’ve found so far (about halfway through the magazines). Here’s a round up of what I’ve scanned and uploaded to date:

There are a number of concert adverts which I’ve put together on one page as it’s not worth posting them separately: Concert ads page

Californication 20 Years Later…

Californication turns 20 today. Hard to believe it was released 20 years ago! RHCP are releasing a special edition vinyl  picture disc of the album in September- pre-order details HERE and there’s a whole range of articles online about the album to celebrate its anniversary. Here are some of them:

SPIN Released article ‘To Live and Die in LA’

Kerrang! A sort of release of an article but with added commentary.

Billboard A couple of paragraphs about the album and then the tracks are ranked in order with comments about each song.

Music Radar have reissued a Rhythm magazine interview with Chad Smith about Californication

Some Early Days RHCP Concert Reviews

I’ve been sent a few scans of early Red Hot Chili Peppers’ concert reviews from The Daily Nexus which was the UC Santa Barbara student newspaper. Enjoy!

1984 October Zany review of a gig at Casa De La Etna- not sure whether due to RHCP, or the interviewer, or both!

1985 October A review of a concert In San Diego

1988 April A review of the band playing at The Pub.

1988 October 13th A very brief news item talking about the band’s earlier gig at the Pub and the fact they were about to appear at the Graduate in IV (Irving?)

1989 January   Review of RHCP doing a surprise four song set at a Thelonius Monster concert.

Many thanks to Hamish at RHCP Sessions for the scans.

Body Parts (Flea’s Body Parts!)

I didn’t have the RHCP book, Body Parts by Grier Govorko, in my collection; it’s out of print and the copies I’ve seen of it have been really expensive. However, my lovely friend in LA saw a second-hand copy in Amoeba and bought it for me! It arrived today. The text is mostly the author describing people and places poetically without any detail of the band, but it contains loads of photos of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on tour. And a lot of photos of intimate parts of Flea’s anatomy – hence I think the ‘Body Parts’ title 😀 There is one photo involving a wine glass that has scarred me for life 😛 Obviously, I can’t post ones here involving nudity but I’ve scanned a few photos to show people what the book is like in case they haven’t seen it (hoping that’s OK as the book is out of print). I’ll put some more AK ones on my Anthony Kiedis website. BTW it’s a Dave Navarro era publication so he is the guitarist shown.

Site Update: Magazine Scans Added

I’ve added a load of scans- think this is everything I have now. Many thanks to A and Hamish at RHCP Sessions for their donations! Really appreciate them all – loads of very early stuff thanks to Hamish and a more recent one thanks to A.
