EDIT: Updated with the 3 song videos & the interview
Red Hot Chili Peppers have appeared on UK TV on Jools Holland’s show for the
second time this week (tonight’s show was recorded along with Tuesday’s live
footage). The show, like Tuesday, opened with RHCP playing
the Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie, they also played Look Around (screen caps
below) and Anthony Kiedis and Josh Klinghoffer were briefly interviewed: They
talked about the departure of John Frusciante & Josh joining/ fitting into
the Red Hot Chili Peppers; Anthony Kiedis mentioned having Everly Bear with him
in London and showing him some of the sights (before Everly Bear has to stay in
school and the world ends next year!) and he also said how much he enjoyed the
set by Bjork. The show again ended with Monarchy of Roses.

Jools Holland: And now I’m delighted to welcome Anthony & Josh from the Red Hot Chili Peppers at this table, here, direct. Very nice to see you both. Welcome back to the show.
Anthony Kiedis: Thank you.
Jools Holland: OK great. Band sounding great. Very good new record but it’s five years since the last record and er… how come you left it sorta so long? Five years, is that right?
Anthony Kiedis: Umm..It seems like five minutes and it’s never really that long. Yeah, maybe since we actually recorded the record before it but then you know we go out on the road for years on end, took a little break and found Josh.
Jools Holland: Exactly. And how did you find Josh?
Anthony Kiedis: Umm Josh is a friend who happened to be in our circle of people and …umm… it was just kinda perfect and magical transition where our previous guitar player, John, was ready to go and do something else and we said that sounds sensible, and then we thought about it for a while and really just let it come to us where we should go. And instead of forcing it in some weird, uncomfortable, awkward direction, we drifted towards the comfortable beauty of Josh.
Jools Holland: Lovely, comfy Josh.
Anthony Kiedis: Yeah right. Which has been. Not to praise him too much wildly on television while he’s sitting there
Jools Holland: No sorry.. yeah.. but [talking over Anthony Kiedis]
Anthony Kiedis: … it’s been the greatest thing that could have ever happened to us
Jools Holland: It sounds great as well. You sound beautiful. Do you feel as though you’ve blended straight in?
Josh Klinghoffer: Umm… yeah… I mean I’ve known those guys these guys for a while so umm yes, you know…
Jools Holland: It’s kinda hard , it’s kinda difficult to be accepted into?
Josh Klinghoffer: No not really cos they are so open and they just kinda want me to be me and you know have as much fun as they are
Jools Holland: And when you are on tour, what do you do? Do you go and see the sights of the cities you are in or do you stay in your room. What do you do?
Anthony Kiedis: Yeah sometimes the sights. Umm I’ve been bringing my son on tour with me and trying to show him around a little bit. He’s four.
Jools Holland: That’s great! Show him the world
Anthony Kiedis: Show him the world
Jools Holland: That is great, good time to see it before it ends.
Anthony Kiedis: And before he gets too locked into school. True before it ends, yes. Yeah, it could be next year according to the polar swap. Did you read about that?
Jools Holland: Is that right? Oh yeah, I knew there would be something else to worry about
Anthony Kiedis: Oh yeah, you got about about a year.
Jools Holland: And show him the world. Great to have you on the show. Its sounds great and it’s great you blend in beautifully with them if I may say so?
Anthony Kiedis: We love Josh and by the way, Bjork was radically wild and wonderful. That was so cool.
Jools Holland: Great wasn’t she?
Anthony Kiedis: Yeah
Jools Holland: A lot of great guests tonight
Anthony Kiedis: A great line up of guests. Yeah.
Jools Holland: Well I’m glad you’re one of them, so it’s very nice to have you both here. Thank you very much. Anthony and Josh! We will be hearing more from the Red Hot Chili Peppers later *
