Magazine Scans and Info

I really appreciate any information and scans that are sent to me for the website and everything I’m sent will find it’s way on here.

I know I’ve really fallen behind; real life has been a total pain over the last two years and the demands from all that’s happened have had to take precedence over the websites. I really hope things are a lot more sorted now and I’m on holiday from work so I have a little more time right now. I’m currently trying to work my way through the backlog that’s built up and all I can do is really apologize and say that I am grateful for all the contributions I’ve had. All of the back issues I’ve collected more recently are now scanned and online and I’m currently working my way through the three pages of site related emails I have- I will reply to everyone and I will get the scans I’ve been sent uploaded as soon as I can. 

There are now over 400 magazine articles online between my two websites. If you are interested, the full list is here:

Anthony Kiedis Interview Classic Rock 200 August 2014

I’ve just been to do my parents’ shopping and glanced through the music magazines while in the supermarket as I usually do and today, I found this! Anthony isn’t named on the cover so was a nice surprise to find this lurking on the inside. This edition of Classic Rock is a special edition to commemorate the 200th publication and is featuring lots of interviews; the Kiedis one is in the ‘Family’ section. I’m not sure if it is a repeat of an earlier interview they’ve done with him ( I haven’t seen it  before and it doesn’t state it’s a re-run of something printed earlier) so I’m assuming it is new but I stand to be corrected on that.

Classic-Rock-200-August-2014-Anthony-Kiedis

 

My first thought every day now is: go check on my son and make sure he’s happy. It’s a great relief. A little boy telling you he loves you or holding his body next to yours, those really are the highs that have no comedown.

RHCP in latest ‘Funky’ Classic Rock (UK) Magazine

The latest edition of UK magazine, ‘Classic Rock’ features a couple of articles mentioning the Red Hot Chili Peppers as part of a section on funk music. One article seems to be based on a book, ‘George Clinton and the Cosmic Odyssey of the P-Funk Empire‘ by Kris Needs, as it lists details of the book at the end saying the book will be published in June (the book is listed as not released on several of the main online book sellers such as Amazon; price given on Amazon UK is £19.95) and there is an article entirely about the Chili Peppers. There is also a Classic Rock count down of the top 25 funkiest songs and RHCP’s ‘Give it Away’ comes in at number two.

Back in… Red?! In bed with Cher, Manilla & loads of scans…

RHCP Current news: Anthony Kiedis and a story about his bedtime babysitting with Cher has made it into the current edition of Q Magazine’s 120 best rock stories article. Check out the details HERE.

For everyone going to see RHCP in Manilla, have a brilliant time! My friends Francis and JMS are going to be there so watch out for two idiots (and maybe a pineapple?!) seriously rocking out! Francis tweeted to Flea a couple of years back about seeing the band in the Philippines and was amazed when he got a reply saying the band should play there… I’m so happy for you both that it’s happening and for everyone else attending! I know a lot of you have waited so long to see the band. BTW We’d love to see any photos!

Finally, this site… I’m really sorry about the pauses- real life just keeps getting in the way and I’ve been having issues over my site domain names but hopefully all is sorted now and I can get going again! All outstanding comments have been approved, new plans are being made for the content of the site and to celebrate the return as a kick off, I’m uploading all of my magazine scans that are outstanding. I have some more to add but I’ve kicked off with a massive upload of John Frusciante articles thanks to the wonderful Stephen Mahon who donated his RHCP magazines to my collection for us all to share.

The following scans have been added:

Blackie Dammett: Lords of the Sunset Strip

As we’ve been reporting, Anthony’s father, Blackie Dammett, has been writing his autobiography and I’m really happy to be able to say it’s now finished and online! It’s called ‘Lords of the Sunset Strip’ -obviously referring to the time when Blackie and the young Anthony were involved in the club scene on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles (as also mentioned in AK’s own autobiography, ‘Scar Tissue.’)

Clearly, as it’s Blackie’s autobiography, it contains stories and mention of his son, Anthony Kiedis, but it also mentions the Red Hot Chili Peppers so it’s a great read for fans of Anthony himself and the band as a whole.

It’s available to download from Amazon (I won’t give links as you have to download from the Amazon website for the country you are in; just search for the book and it’s really easy to find!). Blackie has given so much to the RHCP community over the years so please support him in this venture and download it; the book has been a real labour of love to him. Enjoy everyone!

And on a personal note:

Thank you so much Blackie for the mention in the acknowledgements; it means so much to me. It’s been an honour to have helped support you in any way I could. I’m so delighted this book is now published after all of your hard work and efforts. Congratulations! Rebecca Billingham <3

 

 

 

Many thanks to Ines Hrka? Perkovi? for help with this!

Blackie Dammett’s Autobiography

Anthony’s father has been writing his autobiography as many of you know and obviously it will contain details of Anthony Kiedis and also the Red Hot Chili Peppers; it was due to be released a while ago but got delayed for several reasons…. However, publication of this long-awaited book has just moved another step closer! A few minutes ago, Blackie published the list of contents on his Facebook page:

We’ll keep you updated with the release date, etc. when the details are publicly released :)

 

RHCP & Foo Fighters Photo Exhibition

 

(Photo used with permission of Tony Woolliscroft)

 

Apologies due to real life making this on the tail end, but Tony Woolliscroft is exhibiting his Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters photos again in another display to follow on from the UK exhibitions of his photos at Rock City Art, Bedford and then Stoke-on-Trent but this time, it’s made it up to Leeds.

I went to both the Bedford and Stoke displays and if they are anything to go by, this current exhibition is well worth a visit- the photos of it look amazing! It runs until the end of February at Leeds Gallery, York Street, Leeds, LS9 8AG

More information and photos can be found on the events Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/103946599783177/

 

Tony Woolliscroft is the photographer behind the ‘Me and My Friends’ RHCP photography book- this is a great way of seeing the photos close up. You can also purchase prints.
