Again apologies due to real life making this on the tail end, but Tony Woolliscroft is exhibiting his Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters photos again in another display to follow on from the UK exhibitions of his photos at Rock City Art, Bedford and then Stoke-on-Trent but this time, it’s made it up to Leeds.
I went to both the Bedford and Stoke displays and if they are anything to go by, this current exhibition is well worth a visit- the photos of it look amazing! It runs until the end of February at Leeds Gallery, York Street, Leeds, LS9 8AG
Edit: I posted this above the Helena Vestergaard section as I wasn’t sure who was in it- I’ve since been told it’s Michelinni Provensi and was taken on 5th January (thanks to ‘God’ for the info- I tried to email you about your other points but the email bounced). It came up on a Facebook post about Helena but I thought it wasn’t her and the video itself gave no more detail.
Anthony and Helena Vestergaard
I’ve just added details about Anthony’s ‘date’ (there seems to be some discussion on whether it was an actual date or not!) with Helena Vestergaard as a new page: Anthony Kiedis and Helena Vestergaard Helena fell asleep during the game and her little nap even got a mention in UK newspaper, The Daily Mail (I think the story just ran on their online version and not in the actual paper)- again details of that given on the same page.
(Sorry real life has been getting in the way again so I’m playing catch up on this!)
30 years ago today, February 13th 1983, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed their first ever gig under the name of Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem at the Rhythm Lounge in Los Angeles… and the rest, as they say, is (RHCP) history!
I’ve just made a post of the latest updates on Lara Bingle and Anthony Kiedis in the ‘About the Man’ section; there are a couple of photos of the two together and details from a news item, that’s just been published in the last hour, claiming that Lara’s split from her boyfriend and that the Twitter photo (above) was carefully staged to give him the message that their relationship was over.
If anyone is interested, Richard Alan White has contacted me to say he is selling some of his photographs of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, including Anthony Kiedis, taken at the Mother’s Milk aftershow party on the top of the West Hollywood Hyatt Hotel on Sunset Blvd, back in September (22nd) 1989.
The photos have been locked in a safe for the past 25 years and were recently uncovered by Richard. A double set prints were originally made (some of the original photos were given to Anthony) and then the negatives were put into a vault and basically forgotten about until recently when they were ‘re-discovered’.
If you are interested in finding out any more details such as prices, sizes, print runs and to see more of the images for sale, further information can be found HERE (Please note; these photos are initially for sale for three days only)
UPDATE: if anyone is interested, these photos will be going back on sale on a regular basis (every three days?) so if you’ve missed them and want to buy them, just check back on the site to see if they’ve been re-listed.
Latest update: Anthony Kiedis has arrived in New Zealand for the RHCP concerts. He was photographed with a fan after his arrival at the airport and there’s also a photo of him holding up a couple of newspapers taken by RHCP photographer David Mushegain
Anthony Kiedis with fan Tori Armstrong
“Tori [Armstrong] made herself known to Red Hot Chili Peppers vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who, to her delight, was happy to be snapped for posterity. Others weren’t so lucky.
Keidis arrived in Kaitaia with his partner and children aboard a private jet to spend a few days relaxing (and surfing) at Ahipara, where the family stayed. He was eventually recognised by some fans while enjoying breakfast at Ahipara’s cafe Gumdiggers’ Cafe, which has also hosted the likes of Johnny Depp and Kiwi singer Jackie Clarke. Several autograph/photo requests were politely declined, but he reportedly enjoyed the scrambled eggs, salmon and avocado. ”
This photograph taken by Dave Mushegain shows Anthony Kiedis holding up a copy of The Northland Age (which is also running the same Tori Armstrong story) and also a copy of The Northern Advocate [BTW I've checked The Northland Advocate website for the Freak Surf article and the page that comes up makes no mention of Anthony and a search for Kiedis on the site just takes you to the breakfast story.]
Thanks to Julien for the heads up on the arrival story and Rich Plenge for information on the source of the photo!
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that the band will reissue their 2011 album I’m With You as a tour edition with added bonus material.
