The best money I spent this year.
Now showing: Austin City Limits Music Festival. Channel one, Chili Peppers; Channel two, Jack White. Decisions shouldn’t have to be this difficult.
33, the little cutie? A mere babe in the woods.
Happy Birthday Josh Klinghoffer! 33 Today! :)
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Never is a Long Time
30 day music challenge
Day 15: A song that has been covered by another artist.
I was going to go with Brandon Boyd’s vast improvement on Elvis Costello’s Alison, but with all the chatter about Timelapse Consortium during the past couple of days, I thought something progressive would be appropriate. So here’s early Yes with a brilliant cover of Paul Simon’s America. My other idea was to focus just on the tons of great covers of Bob Dylan’s work, my favorites being Rage Against the Machine’s version of Maggie’s Farm, The Dead Weather’s New Pony, Eric Clapton’s Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, The Pretenders’ Forever Young, and the Band’s I Shall Be Released. Probably the most famous take on the latter was done by Joe Cocker, and of all the bazillions of Beatles covers, I think the best is his version of With A Little Help From My Friends. Then there’s Linda Ronstadt, who pretty much did nothing but covers, many of them great, but none better than her version of Neil Young’s Birds. (She covered Alison too, by the way.) I could go on and on forever with this, but I’ll just mention three more: the Chili Peppers’ cover of Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground, Chris Cornell’s cover of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, and the Foo Fighters’ cover of Arcade Fire’s Keep the Car Running.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Victorian Machinery

Big fat yay, but I wouldn’t kick this short-haired guy out of my house:

what would you rate Anthony Kiedis 1-10? would you marry him?
Haha, I don’t think I could give anyone a number, but I can tell you for sure I would never marry any musician or artist. Been there, done that. What attracts you to them is exactly what drives you crazy in the end. Now, to be fair, my ex-husband left me - not the other way around, but part of it was because he was the grasshopper and I was the ant (or, if you’re an Incubus fan, think Isadore and Erica), and grasshoppers have to hop, if that makes any sense. That said, I’m sure Anthony Kiedis is at least an 11.
A rare glimpse in this livestream. The camera guy doesn’t seem to want to acknowledge that Josh has a face. Frustrating.
The Chili Peppers live streaming at 9 EDT … maybe.
