I’ve just been emailed about a new movie called ‘Low Down’ starring Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close and Flea. Flea and Anthony Kiedis are also executive producers of the film:
The film is based on a memoir by Amy-Jo Albany and looks at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), “…a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction”. The movie is set in 1970s Hollywood.
The film opens in New York on Friday 24th October; more information in the flyer below:
The Daily Mail (UK newspaper) recently featured two things featuring Anthony Kiedis and Helena Vestergaard.
One is a feature on Helena’s photo shoot for Ksubi clothes- Anthony is mentioned a couple of times as her boyfriend:

The other is an article featuring a paparazzi video of the two having coffee and kissing.
As many of you know, photographer Dave Mushegain has been travelling around with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their tour in support of the ‘I’m With You’ album meeting with RHCP fans and taking photographs of them to include in a new book celebrating RHCP’s fans throughout the world. The book is about to be published and is called ‘Fandemonium’. As well as the photos by Dave Mushegain and accounts of 50 of the most devoted fans of the band, there is a forward by Anthony Kiedis. The book is due out in November and can be pre-ordered at most major online book sellers.
There will be two book signings with Anthony Kiedis to promote the book. One will take place on November 17th at Barnes & Noble, The Grove in Los Angeles and the other at Barnes & Noble in Union Square, New York on the 21st November. Both events take place at 7 p.m. and the New York date also features Anthony Kiedis in conversation with David Fricke who writes for Rolling Stone magazine.
A video featuring Anthony Kiedis to promote the book has also been released:
More can be found out here at the official Fandemonium website including sample layout pages, photos and a fan photo of the week section which currently features my online friend Henrik who I had the pleasure of meeting a couple of times at concerts:

I really appreciate any information and scans that are sent to me for the website and everything I’m sent will find it’s way on here.
I know I’ve really fallen behind; real life has been a total pain over the last two years and the demands from all that’s happened have had to take precedence over the websites. I really hope things are a lot more sorted now and I’m on holiday from work so I have a little more time right now. I’m currently trying to work my way through the backlog that’s built up and all I can do is really apologize and say that I am grateful for all the contributions I’ve had. All of the back issues I’ve collected more recently are now scanned and online and I’m currently working my way through the three pages of site related emails I have- I will reply to everyone and I will get the scans I’ve been sent uploaded as soon as I can.
I only post magazines directly related to Anthony Kiedis on this website (e.g. he’s on the cover or it’s a solo interview with just him)- all of my Red Hot Chili Peppers scans go on The Chili Source. There are now over 400 magazine articles online between my two websites. If you are interested, the full list is here:
The Chili Source RHCP Articles & Scans Index
There is a chronological index, an alphabetical index and a list of all none English language articles, etc.
I’ve just been very kindly sent the scans for this magazine. Anthony is on the cover:
There is a four-page article with double page photo on the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a whole but the magazine also contains a re-run of the iconic images of Anthony Kiedis featured in the 1994 June edition of Rolling Stone but this time without any text over them!

Thanks again to Manu for sharing!
I’ve just been to do my parents’ shopping and glanced through the music magazines while in the supermarket as I usually do and today, I found this! Anthony isn’t named on the cover so was a nice surprise to find this lurking on the inside. This edition of Classic Rock is a special edition to commemorate the 200th publication and is featuring lots of interviews; the Kiedis one is in the ‘Family’ section. I’m not sure if it is a repeat of an earlier interview they’ve done with him ( I haven’t seen it before and it doesn’t state it’s a re-run of something printed earlier) so I’m assuming it is new but I stand to be corrected on that.
My first thought every day now is: go check on my son and make sure he’s happy. It’s a great relief. A little boy telling you he loves you or holding his body next to yours, those really are the highs that have no comedown.
Full transcript can be found in the articles section: Anthony Kiedis Classic Rock 200

I’m currently on holiday from work and trying to play a massive catch up on life. I can’t believe I haven’t posted these before (have a write up of the concert nearly done which I hope to get online tomorrow) but I’ve just added a gallery of the photos I took of Anthony Kiedis at the IOW Festival.
It was really hard taking them as I was a couple of rows back (I did start out on the second row from the front but got pushed out and decided I wanted to enjoy the concert rather than be crushed so I moved a little bit back and to the side) so loads of my photos ended up with hands across them but I managed to get some shots I’m really happy with so I hope you enjoy them too.
Anthony Kiedis was present at the UFC Lawler vs Brown contest held in San Jose, California on 26th July.
At the end of the fight he was he was invited by UFC President Dana White to meet another fighter; you can see the video here on a Facebook post.
The latest edition of UK magazine, ‘Classic Rock’ features a couple of articles mentioning the Red Hot Chili Peppers as part of a section on funk music. One article seems to be based on a book, ‘George Clinton and the Cosmic Odyssey of the P-Funk Empire‘ by Kris Needs, as it lists details of the book at the end saying the book will be published in June (the book is listed as not released on several of the main online book sellers such as Amazon; price given on Amazon UK is £19.95) and there is an article entirely about the Chili Peppers. There is also a Classic Rock count down of the top 25 funkiest songs and RHCP’s ‘Give it Away’ comes in at number two.

Anthony Kiedis has added his support to the campaign to place pressure on world authorities to act on the case of the 276 Nigerian girls kidnapped from their school by the Islamist militant group ‘Boko Haram’ on 14th April.
