Yo bro! As you recall you and I had some conversations about the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I just wanted to contact you and let you know that as of October 5, they are officially back in the studion writing and recording their next album.
If you like em chack out the Greatest hit DVD and CD. and look at these song:
Death of a Martian
True Men Don't Kill Coyotes
Apache Rose Peacock
Breaking the Girl
Most of those are older songs and have a heavy funk attitude about them. They are really good but you have to appreciate their funk heritage. In addition get the DVD's: RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS LIVE AT SLANE CASTLE and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS LIVE IN JAPAN.
Also, the book "Give It Away" tells the stories of al their songs up until the "By The Way album.
Also, check out Anthony Keidis'es autobiography called "Scar Tissue."
