Anthony Kiedis Exec Director on ‘Low Down’ Movie

I’ve just been emailed about a new movie called ‘Low Down’ starring Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close and Flea. Flea and Anthony Kiedis are also executive producers of the film:

The film is based on a memoir by Amy-Jo Albany and looks at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), “…a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction”. The movie is set in 1970s Hollywood.

 


The film opens in New York on Friday 24th October; more information in the flyer below:

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.

I only post magazines directly related to Anthony Kiedis on this website (e.g. he’s on the cover or it’s a solo interview with just him)- all of my Red Hot Chili Peppers scans go on The Chili Source. There are now over 400 magazine articles online between my two websites. If you are interested, the full list is here:

The Chili Source RHCP Articles & Scans Index

There is a chronological index, an alphabetical index and a list of all none English language articles, etc.

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.

Full transcript can be found in the articles section: Anthony Kiedis Classic Rock 200

Anthony Kiedis at Isle of Wight Festival 14th June

I’m currently on holiday from work and trying to play a massive catch up on life. I can’t believe I haven’t posted these before (have a write up of the concert nearly done which I hope to get online tomorrow) but I’ve just added a gallery of the photos I took of Anthony Kiedis at the IOW Festival.

It was really hard taking them as I was a couple of rows back (I did start out on the second row from the front but got pushed out and decided I wanted to enjoy the concert rather than be crushed so I moved a little bit back and to the side) so loads of my photos ended up with hands across them but I managed to get some shots I’m really happy with so I hope you enjoy them too.
