Red Hot Chili Peppers fansite, news page and forum with dedicated RHCP magazine scan and articles section featuring Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea Michael Balzary, Josh Klinghoffer and John Frusciante.
Finally some details about Josh’s solo work! It’s going by the name Pluralone and will be released on August 16th, 2019.
Pluraloneis a new project from multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Josh Klinghoffer. While best known as the current guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Klinghoffer also fronts the group Dot Hacker, and has played with a long list of notable artists over the years. Pluralone’s debut single release features two covers, both in languages foreign to Klinghoffer. “Io Sono Quel Che Sono” was originally popularized by Italian singer Mina. “Menina Mulher Da Pele Preta” was written and performed by Brazilian popular musician Jorge Ben. Klinghoffer performs all instrumentals and vocals for both tracks. The collage artwork was created by Dot Hacker drummer, Eric Gardner.
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:
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.
Fab is a long-time friend of Anthony Kiedis and RHCP. He’s named-checked on the Live in Hyde Park album. He lived in LA with Flea and was close friends with the band in their early days… Anyway, Fab recently sent some photos that he came across while searching for something else to Anthony & Flea of them with his son, Angelo. Flea posted a couple of them on his Instagram account.The photo of him with Angelo had the caption, “Who is the mystery baby?” leading to much speculation as to who the baby was.
Fab responded with the same photo now captioned with, “Who are them mysterious dudes holding my baby?” 🙂
I’m posting them here as they are such sweet pics and to clear up who the baby is as there’s been a lot of debate online and some people didn’t know/have missed the answer (and there’s also a recent one of the, now grown up, baby).
Many thanks to Fab for the extra info & the photos. (Photos used with permission).
