      I’ve been checking my answer for this with a couple of people before I replied. Sorry none of us can come up with a reason for the broken heart glove; he’s known to have briefly broken up with his then girlfriend, Heather Christie at the end of 2005 but started dating her again in 2006 and several of the photos of him with the heart glove are taken in the middle (July/August) of that year when they were supposed to be back together. Maybe it had significance and maybe it didn’t- I will try to find out more but sorry, that’s all I can say for now.
      There’s never been a given explanation as to why he wears gloves; some people have speculated that he started to hide marks of drugs use but there is no known truth in that (& the counter-argument is that his gloves are too short to hide tracks marks up the arm anyway). The most likely explanations are that it’s for image (he likes how they look) or for practical reasons as they help absorb sweat and stop his hands slipping on the microphone.

        Have asked the leading AK authority :D about this and acccording to them, there is probably no significance to the heart; AK always wears gloves on stage and probably chose the heart because it’s a cool design.

    Wearing of gloves while holding a microphone prevents nerve damage from the mic pressing constantly on the soft palms of the hands.

    I’ve been DESPERATELY trying to find out what show (at least, it looks like it’s from a show) the last picture in the 6th row is from with the long hair? (labeled “kiedis young injun”). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
