New Back Issue Scans with Anthony Kiedis Interviews
Two new back issues featuring interviews with Anthony Kiedis have also been uploaded. Both are from the British music magazine Q with one interview from 1999 and the other from 2006.
Here’s an extract from the 1999 interview:
Is there something sexual going on between you and him?
Between John and me? No! Not in the past, present or future. I’m very close to John as a friend and when we take pictures he often expresses his affection for me by slumping over me, but John is the most purely heterosexual man I have ever met.
What did you think of All Saints doing Under The Bridge?
It didn’t really affect me. I might have been more impressed if The Clash had re-formed and recorded it, but that’s as good a song as we have ever written.
And how’s the heroin addiction coming along?
I think that’s an unnecessary subject to discuss in a music interview. For me today, I’m not interested or in need of any mind-altering substance, heroin or anything else. I’m just dealing with today.

Here’s an extract from the 2006 interview:
Dodgy burger van or bring your own sandwiches?
I’m sure a rarefied, elitist pig when it comes to eating clean, good food I can’t even begin to imagine playing a show and having to eat the catering you see at some of these places.
What’s your fantasy festival line-up?
Pretty much any guitar player named Jimmy, whether it’s Page or Hendrix. Jimmy Page came to see us a couple of times when we played London, and it was really the most exciting backstage moment we ever had. But I’ve never been able to see him play. I’ve never also seen Patti Smith play, but I think I might get a chance to see her this summer. She may even join us for a number.
