I’ve just tackled another job off the ‘to do’ list. I’ve gone through the 1993 Details: Changing Fashions video featuring AK with Debbie Harry and Sofia Coppola (who AK dated) and taken screencaps which I’ve added to a written summary of the piece.
Think it’s actually an advert for CK underpants the amount of times you see AK stripping to his in the video!! If you haven’t seen the video and want something to do during a coffee break today, it’s well worth watching!
I’m hoping that all of the main news stories from over the summer have now been posted and I’ve done a round up of the videos, set list, etc. from Sunday’s RHCP concert in San Diego. I’m further hoping that life stops chucking things at me for a while and I can now update as soon as I see new news items!
A back issue magazine arrived yesterday and it’s now scanned and online with a transcript: Rolling Stone December 2000. Anthony Kiedis is featured in ‘the best people of the year’ section of Rolling Stone
The Red Hot Chili Peppers played a one-off gig on Sunday at the Belly Up Tavern in San Diego. It was a fundraiser for youth performing arts education groups including Heartbeat Music Academy, San Diego Young Artists Music Academy and the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Unfortunately the $1000 ticket price put it beyond the reach of most RHCP fans but it was in a good cause! And those lucky enough to be able to go got to see the Chilis play in a small venue and also see them digging deep into their back catalog to pull some old songs out and give them an airing for the first time in years!

Surfer Kelly Slater actually launched his Outerknown clothing brand back in July but the official launch party was delayed until mid-August.The party was held at the house of architect Harry Gesner in Malibu, California and attracted number of Hollywood stars including Anthony Kiedis.
A while ago, I read an LA Weekly article about on the actual location of the bridge and I decided to put something together on the song as a whole rather than just to link to the article as this is the song that began everything RHCP for me.
I’ve covered the content, background, meaning, etc. (all backed up with quotes- mostly linked to articles on this site) and also added the information from the LA Weekly article which started all of this off.
Life got in the way and I’ve just finally finished the piece after it sitting there for way too long but at least the couple of weeks I’ve taken off work have allowed me to complete it. It’s here if anyone is interested: Under The Bridge
A number of new scans have been uploaded on here and The Chili Source over the last few days. A massive thank you to the lovely Claire R and Conocido COnocidos from RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS CLUB MÉXICO from taking so much time and effort to scan & send articles to me.
2006 May Piranha (Germany) Article about Stadium Arcadium with several large photos
2006 May In Rock (Japan) Long article with some lovely photos
2006 May Rock & Folk (France) An article about Stadium Arcadium with some brilliant and unique photos.
All English language clippings and magazine scan articles on here now have transcripts (Any help with transcripts/translations of any none English language articles would be gratefully received!)
I’ve also tidied up the sections so sorry, a few things have moved around and also some have found a new home with The Chili Source Scan Collection (full index of all of the scans over the two websites here - there are now over 440 scans online!) With the exception of one very long Chad Smith interview I’m getting too, all of the English language articles on The Chili Source also have transcripts.
In addition, I’ve added a traditional link index for just this website HERE for anyone who would prefer it (the pop-up menus have been driving me mad when I use my phone).
Due to personal reasons I’ve not been updating this site over the summer; my mother unexpectedly died at the start of the summer holidays and I’ve not felt up to doing very much. She had Alzheimer’s Disease so we knew we didn’t have forever with her but she fell out of bed & broke her arm and it all went crazy from there; she was readmitted to hospital two weeks later on end-of-life care as the Alzheimer’s had very suddenly reached terminal. Those last six days was so awful which is why I’ve not been active as I was so exhausted and drained- losing my husband and my mother in three years has been so hard.
But I’m trying to get going again! I’m hoping to play catch up with all new photos, etc. this week and I have been working on transcripts for all of the English language magazine scans I have on both my websites- are virtually all completed now. I’ve been sorting out the scans on here today and the ‘quick’ job of adding all magazine links to a page (to use in addition/instead of the drop down menus that have been driving me crazy when I try to use them on my phone) ended up taking hours but that is done now and can be accessed here. I’ve also got some more scans that people have kindly sent me over the last few weeks so I’ll hopefully be adding them this week too- will make an update page of everything that’s new when it’s all done.
