Anthony appeared on the Jimmy Fallon ‘The Tonight Show’ on Thursday 20th November. He performed ‘Under The Bridge’ as a ‘sit-in’ with The Roots and there was also a plug for the ‘Fandemonium’ book with Anthony briefly talking about the book; although from the clip below (all I’ve seen here as I don’t think the show is broadcast here in the UK), it seemed to be mostly the host talking about a t-shirt swapping story with Anthony…

I’ve just picked an article up in a search that says that Anthony Kiedis, with his “younger Australian girlfriend, model Helena Vestergaard” has taken part in a campaign staged by General Pants to help raise money for disadvantaged young people in Australia. Apparently over the Christmas period, General Pants will change its name to General Peace Co. and a number of celebrities are taking part in the campaign… Source
I can’t find anything else on this except this article run on the Daily Telegraph Australia website and I can’t find any photos- any extra info would be appreciated! Thanks
So, yesterday and the signing of Fandemonium! The book signing was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. with wristbands being available from 9 a.m. and was held at Barnes & Noble, The Grove, Los Angeles. Originally the event was advertised as having Anthony Kiedis and photographer David Mushegain in attendance but during the day it was announced that more than one Red Hot Chili Pepper band member would be there! …
As it turned out, RHCP were represented by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith and Flea. David Mushegain was of course there (if you don’t know, Dave is the person at the table with a red bandana) and milling around in the background were several other recognizable faces including Chris Warren (Chad’s drum tech whom many of you will have seen playing on stage with the band during the ‘I’m With You’ tour concerts) and Anthony’s girlfriend, Helena Vestergaard.

Many thanks to Feli for this video
A massive thank you to my friends, Angra, Feli and Pamela, who went yesterday and who have shared their photos and videos with us! Love you my RHCP sister and T-shirt Experiment girls! <3

If anyone else has info/photos/video of the event and would like to share, I’d love to hear from you!
As part of the promotion of Fandemonium along with his book signing at Barnes And Noble in The Grove later today, Anthony Kiedis has appeared on the LA KROQ radio station on the ‘Kevin and Bean’ show. Interview can be heard HERE
Bean asked Kiedis if he was surprised that the band has stayed together for 30 years.
“Yes and no. I couldn’t imagine it not being there and I still love it and I still love my mates that we play with, but at the same time if I look at it objectively, it seems impossible for 4 people to stay together this long doing something that involves so much emotion and ego and struggle and travel and strife and highs and lows. It’s mathematically nearly impossible.”
When asked about new Chili Peppers music, Kiedis responded, “We’ve written about 30 songs and we’re trying to make them better and kind of go over arrangements and lyrics, so we’re about to start recording a new record. We’ll start recording in December and see what happens. I feel like it’s a better collection of songs than our last record, and I was happy with our last record, but I think this is sort of Josh’s coming of age moment with the band. It’s fun.”

http://www.alternativenation.net/red-hot-chili-peppers-update-new-album/Update on the new Red Hot Chili Peppers’ album based:
In an interview this morning with KROQ, Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis announced that the Chili Peppers will be returning to the studio to record their newly written album next month. When approached about details, Kiedis stated that he wants the new album to only be 13 songs, however it is likely that they will “put 10 more songs on top of that.” Kiedis felt that this album will show Josh Klinghoffer’s coming of age as their guitarist and that the new material will have him, as a guitarist and songwriter, stand out a lot. Kiedis also talked at some lengths about his friendships with his bandmates, and how they have come to effect him musically and emotionally. No producer or other production members were mentioned regarding the album’s recording and production, reinforcing the rumors of a different producer than “fifth Chili Pepper” Rick Rubin for the new album.

To anyone lucky enough to be going to the book signing tomorrow/today/Monday! (time zones!) to see a certain Mr. Kiedis, I hope you all have an amazing time! I know you won’t probably be able to take photos inside the signing but we would love to see photos of the people outside, you with your book, etc. and anything else interesting We’d also love to hear your accounts of the event (I would like to add an article on here featuring them). Don’t forget to check out the Barnes and Noble website of the event in case it has some useful info on there! The latest thing was that wristbands for the event are limited and they will be available from 9 a.m. Barnes and Noble
Schedule listings for ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ are showing that Anthony Kiedis is due to appear on the show on Thursday 20th November- he will be doing a ‘sit-in with The Roots’.
I’ve just added a couple of new scans of past issue magazines featuring Anthony Kiedis/RHCP. One is ‘Kulturnews‘ from 2006 (German magazine; fully translated thanks to Larissa) featuring an interview with Anthony and the other is an interview from another German magazine, Musik Express Sounds (September 1989), with photographer Chris Clunns talking about his work – from which comes this alternative photo of the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing their own, infamous, take on walking across Abbey Road…
A bit of fun for what is here an extremely wet and dull Wednesday morning; just picked this up in a news feed… An article on Movember and growing moustaches citing several celebrity examples showing how cool the ‘stache can be. And of course, the article features a certain Mr. Kiedis!
Few people in this world exceed Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in coolness, and few people in this world look better with a moustache than Anthony Kiedis. Source
