Back Issue from 2007

I’ve just scanned and uploaded a magazine from 2007 which features Anthony Kiedis on the cover. The magazine is from Poland and has a four page feature (on Blood Sugar Sex Magik?) and a review of the Chorzow concert.

2015 Gershwin Award Recipient

ANTHONY

KIEDIS

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Anthony Kiedis went from a short-spanned childhood acting career to becoming one of the most influential artists in the alternative rock boom of the early ‘90s. After he moved to L.A. at age 12 to live with his father, he graduated with honors from Fairfax High School and attended UCLA from 1980-81. While at Fairfax, he met original band member and lifelong friend Flea, a relationship that eventually led to the formation of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the best-selling bands of all time with over 80 million records sold worldwide. Best known as the frontman of the Chili Peppers, lead singer and lyricist Kiedis has led the group through what is considered one of the most legendary paths of evolution in modern music.

Since their debut album in 1984, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the group’s music has ranged from thrashy punk funk to psychedelic punk rock to “ruminative California pop” with more lyrical rap influence in the early years. Lyric themes include friendship, loss, teen angst, social and political issues, loneliness, romance, dealing with relationship and substance abuse, and overcoming struggle. Kiedis’ songwriting has changed throughout the years, weaving through these themes and writing from a place of personal growth. Five of the band’s albums have been certified multiplatinum in the United States; they have received a total of six Grammy awards, among other countless awards including the Video Vanguard Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2000 at the MTV Music Video Awards. Their 2006 album Stadium Arcadium was their fist Number One album, topping the charts upon its release.

Anthony Kiedis holds a number of other achievements, such as the 2004 publication of his autobiography, Scar Tissue. The New York Times best-selling book takes a deep look at the ins and outs of Kiedis’ childhood, adolescence, and the first two decades of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In recent years, in addition to almost non-stop touring, the band has played at hit music festivals around the country (?)  in front of hundreds of thousands of fans. In 2012, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kiedis and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently recording their eleventh studio album which is scheduled to be released later this year.

Many thanks to my friend Angra for the photos!

UCLA Spring Sing… More

Another brief clip of Anthony Kiedis and Josh Klinghoffer preforming ‘By The Way’ has been posted:

The Daily Bruin is also running a feature saying that the guys played ‘Otherside’, ‘By The Way’ (both confirmed with videos that have been posted) and a cover of “If You Want Me To Stay” by Sly and The Family Stone which hasn’t been confirmed by another source. It also contains a snippet of Anthony’s speech:

Kiedis, the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and a political science student at UCLA from 1980 to 1981, was presented with the George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement. In his acceptance speech, he thanked the UCLA Alumni Association even though he said that receiving awards can be detrimental to inspiration.

“A lot of successful songwriters start off having a great connection to life and the awards start coming and suddenly they have nothing to say,” Kiedis said. “But I am grateful to (the UCLA Alumni Association) for pointing out someone who writes songs.”

After Kiedis’ speech, he brought fellow bandmate and guitarist Klinghoffer on stage to perform Red Hot Chili Peppers songs “Otherside” and “By The Way,” and a cover of “If You Want Me To Stay” by Sly and The Family Stone. Their performance earned a standing ovation from the audience.

Sorry I don’t know the source for this but apparently it’s Anthony receiving his award:

Anthony Kiedis at UCLA Spring Sing

Anthony was with Josh Klinghoffer at the UCLA Spring Sing where Anthony received the  UCLA Student Alumni Association annual ‘George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement’  for 2015. He performed on stage with RHCP’s Josh Klinghoffer. The first clue that there was to be a live element came with a post showing the two rehearsing:

Finished Animals Asia Campaign Featuring Anthony Kiedis

Animals-asia-anthony-kiedis-courtney-money-2

Anthony Kiedis with model Courtney Money

The completed video for the Animals Asia “Let a Bear Sh!t in the Woods” campaign has now been released- we’ve already posted the video trailer teaser and some photos from the video shoot (previous posts) but here are the photos and video from the final thing!

animals-asia-anthony-kiedis-Courtney-Money

The Animals Asia ”Let a Bear Sh!t in the Woods”campaign is aimed at putting an end to the seriously cruel practice of bear bile farming in China and Vietnam. The video was directed by Shaina Danziger with photographs by Katarina Benzova. All photos and donation links can be seen on the Animals Asia website.

Anthony Kiedis opens the video as the narrator but is continually interrupted. The first interruptions are by a make-up artist who puts some bear ears on his head before returning seconds later and adding a black dot on his nose. Kiedis resumes but is then interrupted by Ozzy Osbourne who does his best bear impression while walking through the set along with his wife, Sharon, who apologizes profusely for the interruption. Anthony shakes his head, throws his script over his shoulder and walks off set. The video continues with cameos by other famous people and a number of models plus a song by Moby…
