30 years ago today, February 13th 1983, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed their first ever gig under the name of Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem at the Rhythm Lounge in Los Angeles… and the rest, as they say, is (RHCP) history!
Here’s to the next 30 years!

If anyone is interested, Richard Alan White has contacted me to say he is selling some of his photographs of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, including Anthony Kiedis, taken at the Mother’s Milk aftershow party on the top of the West Hollywood Hyatt Hotel on Sunset Blvd, back in September (22nd) 1989.
The photos have been locked in a safe for the past 25 years and were recently uncovered by Richard. A double set prints were originally made (some of the original photos were given to Anthony) and then the negatives were put into a vault and basically forgotten about until recently when they were ‘re-discovered’.
If you are interested in finding out any more details such as prices, sizes, print runs and to see more of the images for sale, further information can be found HERE (Please note; these photos are initially for sale for three days only)

I’m trying to play catch up after the chaos of last year and have begun by scanning the remaining back issue magazines I have- I can actually get to my desk now!
All of my back issue collection featuring articles on the Red Hot Chili Peppers is now scanned and online; there are over 350 articles ranging from the 1980s right up to the current day with interviews from Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Chad Smith, Josh Klinghoffer, Flea, Dave Navarro, Arik Marshall…. enjoy
The collection can be viewed from the ‘Articles & Scans’ tab under the banner or HERE
I’m now working on getting translations for the articles not written in English and also to get transcripts of all of the articles so if anyone can help with translating or typing out the articles, I’d love to hear from you! Thanks
Please note: I’ve deleted the video for now
Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating and peace and blessings to all of our followers.

Just a reminder that the photography exhibition of photos of the Red Hot Chili Peppers & the Foo Fighters (are several Anthony Kiedis photos) taken by Tony Woolliscroft currently on display at Stoke-on-Trent, England is coming to an end of Friday 30th November so you need to be quick if you want to visit!
I went to see it on Tuesday and it was worth popping in As well as the photos on display, you can order copies and get a chance to buy the exhibition poster as well as the photo book that accompanied Woolliscroft’s photo display in Bedford a couple of months ago.
Opening night poster:
The exhibition is free and is on display at the Burslem School of Art in Burlsem, Stoke-on-Trent:
Burslem School of Art, Queen Street, Stoke-on-Trent, ST6 3EJ, United Kingdom 01782 810 808 (Take the number with you as if you’re using Sat Nav, Tom Tom goes totally crazy and sends you round in circles about 1/4 from the venue- I had to park and phone for directions in )
The centre is open 9-5 daily during the week.
If anyone fancies babysitting my two children while I pop over to the US for a few days….?!!
