Anthony Kiedis talks to Rolling Stone

There’s a brief interview with Anthony Kiedis on where he’s discussing this weekend’s RHCP’s benefit concert for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music and also the new album.

About the show he says,

“Historically, it’s our funnest event of the year,” says RHCP frontman Anthony Kiedis, who sits on the school’s board. “It’s shocking and wonderful how supportive musicians and artists are in contributing their time and their art promoting the act of children learning music.”

RHCP are the first to perform with an opening acoustic set;

The Chili Peppers are playing the earliest slot of all, kicking off the festivities with a short acoustic set. ”It’s fun opening up for someone — the pressure isn’t on us to close the show, so all we have to do is warm up the crowd,” Kiedis says. When’s the last time they had that experience? “As a legitimate opening act, jeez, Louise. Maybe for the Rolling Stones in the mid-Nineties.”

Kiedis is particularly psyched about the possibilities of playing acoustic, which they’ve done before at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit. “I love to play acoustic, whether we’re talking about ‘By the Way’ or an old song like ‘Me and My Friends,’” he says. “These very aggressive, loud, chaotic-sounding electric songs work rather nicely on quiet acoustic instruments. We rehearsed yesterday and played everything acoustically from ‘Fire’ by Jimi Hendrix to trying to figure out if ‘Californication’ works on acoustic — which it did.”

 Kiedis  then discussed the other musical contributors to the show:

 ”I told Rick Rubin yesterday that he should come check it out,” Kiedis says. “He said, ‘Who’s playing?’ I said, ‘John Legend.’ He gave me that look, like, ‘Oh, he’s real.’”…”I’ve never seen him live, so I’m about to be enlightened,” Kiedis says, adding that he’s a huge fan of the vibrant West Coast music scene that Washington represents. “It’s been a long time since Los Angeles has had a community of musicians that’s been so dominant and vital, and I feel like we have that now coming out of South Central. I’m very proud of that entire scene.” He cites frequent Washington collaborators like Thundercat (“I couldn’t be any bigger of a fan”) and Kendrick Lamar as among his favorite young artists. “[To Pimp a Butterfly] is one of my favorite records of the year, for sure,” Kiedis says. “It had an energy and an intelligence and a color that reminded me of being a kid and putting on a Funkadelic record. And it had the best videos by far — Kendrick gave me new faith in the medium of video.”

Anthony also talks about the contributors to the accompanying silent auction:

“It’s amazing to call up someone like [acclaimed pop-artist] Ed Ruscha and explain to him that we’re raising money to teach kids music, and he’s like, ‘Where do I send the piece?’” says Kiedis.

“We’ve written some songs that I feel are as good as any songs we’ve ever written.”

The end of the interview includes some information about the new album:

After the benefit, it’ll be back to the studio, where RHCP are working with producer Danger Mouse on their 11th studio album and first since 2011. “The torture about doing this [show] is that we’ve been writing new music for the last year, and we’ve written some songs that I feel are as good as any songs we’ve ever written,” Kiedis says. “We’re just dying to play the new songs — but we can’t, because every single human has a recording device on them at all times.” He says work with Danger Mouse has been going well. “He’s very good about coming up with super-modern ideas, but he’ll also touch on the acoustic guitar in the control room and strip the song down to its acoustic essentials,” Kiedis adds. “Which is a beautiful place to be.”

Anthony Co-hosting Silverlake Benefit 2015


On Saturday, October 17, 2015, FLEA and ANTHONY, will host 350 guests for a private dinner with a silent auction and performance by JOHN LEGEND, KAMASI WASHINGTON, and a surprise guest. With the outstanding help of the GALLERY GAGOSIAN in Beverly Hills, about 50 works of art by major artists will be sold during the dinner in a silent auction.

“Shepherding a non-profit music school for the last 14 years has taken an enormous amount of time, energy, and patience. Having the help from our contemporaries each year at our annual fundraiser has been hugely comforting and enables us to give thousands of kids a quality music education. I am so grateful for the assistance we are getting this year from the visual artists, some of whom are Damien Hirst, Thomas Houseago, Jeff Koons, and Richard Prince, as well as performing musicians John Legend and Kamasi Washington. This promises to be a beautiful evening of music and art to benefit the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, whose students we owe everything to. Thank you and love to all.” — Flea

“The shindigs we throw to raise love, cash and awareness for SCM are as fun as they are meaningful. To see how huge the musicians and other artists contribute is testament to how important they all know the arts are for our young people. Let there be sound and vision my friends…..” — Anthony Kiedis

Smoke Rings, I Know You’re Going to Blow One…


As you probably know by now, I collect magazines featuring RHCP. I have my list of ones I’d really like and there were two magazines on the ‘holy grail’ list for me… I saw one of them for sale for the first time about a month ago but the postage was a rip-off and I reluctantly let it go; but then a week ago, I saw another posting for it which was a lot cheaper and I had to get it!

It arrived this morning so I’ve just scanned and uploaded it – there’s also a full transcript. I don’t think many people will have seen it before as it is pretty rare (why I’ve mentioned it here although it’s uploaded on The Chili Source as the article features the whole band).

Smoke: Don’t let the magazine title put you off; I really wanted it as it’s so rare and one of those iconic magazine covers but I thought the content would be very limited given the publication- I was very wrong! There are a few photos of the band with cigars and a few references to smoking them but it’s mostly a lengthy article talking about working with, then new boy, Dave Navarro and One Hot Minute.

More Info Pages Added

Taking a bit of time off work has finally given me some time to start working on some more of the articles/information pieces I want to add to the website.

I’ve just added an info piece, with a photo gallery, about Anthony Kiedis modelling Shawn Clothing – the clothing designed by his then girlfriend Yohanna Logan (back in 2003).

Yesterday, I did the same with a piece about Sat Hari- the woman who administers Anthony’s ozone treatment.

And before that, a bit of a weird topic but in reply to some requests I’ve had for it, I put together some information on the accidents and illnesses Anthony is known to have had (I was using info I had to hand rather than checking all of my books and magazines but I presume it covers the main things).

Update: Anthony & Sea Shepherd including a photo gallery of him & Flea receiving the first Sea Shepherd “Rock the Boat” Award.

If anyone has an extra info or wants to make corrections please say or if there’s a topic you’d like to be covered, please shout and I’ll see what I can do!
