Anthony Kiedis (& Flea), took part in a LA Lakers “All Access” event. Both Chili Peppers were on members of the panel onstage and spoke about their experiences with Kobe and the LA Lakers. Anthony was accompanied by his son to the event.
Posts are still coming in so I’ll link to our Facebook page for now and then sort through the best ones to post here once I have time)
I’ve tidied all of the FAQs and moved one or two things around with some posts added and others updated e.g. I’ve put together a new piece on Flea’s book, Acid For The Children, detailing all of the AK mentions in it including several screenshots as I know the book isn’t available everywhere.

Thanks to everyone who posted and shared things from the night- so appreciated (sorry we can’t use it all!). A big thanks to David Mushegain for the Instagram livestream and to my Sisterwitch for researching the best links for me to use.
It has been rumoured and whispered about for some time that Anthony Kiedis, together with the rest of RHCP, have been filming a documentary. It was originally believed that it was going to be based on just the special Red Hot Chili Peppers’ concert at the pyramids in Cairo earlier this year, but speculation and some reliable sources have since suggested it contains more than that with recording taking place at other events too. However, the whole thing, rumours and gossip, have recently dried up… Until now. David Mushegain has just posted:
such a rad day previewing our new @chilipeppers documentary and hanging with @chadsmithofficial on his bday
Really hope this is going to see the light of day for fans soon! Before Christmas release to hit the Christmas market? Would be perfect! We can hope…
Details: This was a fundraising event headlined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, for Oceana (a maritime conservation charity). The concert was held in a private garden. Tickets cost between $2500 and $50,000 for a table.

By the way… how does it go again?
The finale of the night provided the lucky guests with a bizarre rarity: the Chili Peppers forgetting how to play one of their biggest hits. Flea and Klinghoffer turned to face each, apparently to start their 2002 smash “By the Way,” but looked completely perplexed by the horrendous, out-of-tune racket they created. For a good minute, the duo looked utterly stumped as guests giggled (“I blame the bass tech” quipped Kiedis) before Flea switched out his instrument and the band launched into a note-perfect “Give It Away.” As back-up plans go, it’s a pretty good one to have up your sleeve.
