I know not anything directly to do with Anthony Kiedis himself, although I’m guessing he will be mentioned in the book as he and Flea have been friends since childhood, but I’m posting here in case people are interested in going to one of the events with Flea for the book launch of his autobiography, Acid For The Children.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to headline Oceana’s fourth annual “Rock Under The Stars” fundraiser event in LA this Saturday, 12th October. The event will be held at a private residence.
Oceana is a charity dedicated to helping rebuild abundant and biodiverse oceans and the aim of ‘Rock Under the Stars’ is to help the charity to fund its mission to stop the scourge of ocean plastic pollution.

*The concert was broadcast live.
*The concert took place on Josh Klinghoffer’s 40th Birthday.
*The setlist was leaked pre-concert to much excitement about the inclusion of Sikamikanico which saw its live debut as a gift to Josh for his birthday:
Anthony Kiedis, at the end of Sikamikanico:
“That was our gift to Josh Klinghoffer. [Thank you]. It’s his birthday; and when he was a fifteen year old boy, out in the San Fernando Valley, he got a hold of that song and that time he was a drummer, wasn’t really playing the guitar. He was frickin’ killing the skins, one skin at a time, and he learned how to play that sh*t on the drums so now, what have we got, is it 25 years later?, he’s rocking that sh*t on the guitar. Happy Birthday, Josh!”
The concert took place on Josh’s 40th Birthday. Sikamikanico saw its live debut as a gift to Josh for his birthday because it’s his favourite RHCP song.

This interview from 1996 has just been posted on YouTube. I’ve not seen it before so I’m assuming some of you haven’t either 🙂 It’s a French interview, but talking to Chad Smith and Anthony Kiedis in London. It starts off with the Warped video, but after that moves on to discuss One Hot Minute, Dave Navarro and Anthony comments on the French government performing a nuclear test in Tahiti.

This is an old video featuring Anthony Kiedis that’s just been (re)posted – I’ve seen a photo of Anthony by the pool from it, but never the video. Lots of info about his tattoos (the tattoo FAQ has just been updated to include it). Enjoy!
