I think these guys are one of the best bands around today. Their songwriting is brilliant and each member is brilliant at his instrument.

For those that don't know them - they started out as a funk band in California and got big in 1991 with Blood Sugar Sex Magic. Since then they have become less funk and more rock but they are as good as ever.

They have just finished recording a new album and will be out in due course.

Let's get some discussion going! Surely there are heaps their fans here. Let's start with your predictions for the next album.

They are an incredible band, one of my favorites. John Frusciante is one of my musical idols.

Discussion of them dies out pretty quickly, though:(.

Frusciante practised so much he could have been a virtuoso but he chose not to because he thought it sounded like ****! :amaze:

Yes, they're my fav band (see my nick) and I'm not being biased when I say I think they're in the top 10 or 15 greatest ever rock bands. I also like Iron Maiden and Queen a lot. Frusciante once had one twelfth of the clean blood in his body that he was supposed to have at one point in time. IMO, he's one of the greatest guitarists ever. Incredibly creative (brilliant songwriting included), can be technical when he wants and perfect tone. I think Frank Zappa tried to recruit him but I'm not sure on that. He (and RHCP) have been through the greatest challenges and I'm eagerly anticipating this new album. I don't you if you guys realise it, but one of the reasons RHCP talk dies out is because they are hard to classify by genre, and the fans are dispersed throughout the whole of mx rather than in R&M.

Yeah, that might be right (about the genre thing).

Do you prefer the older funky peppers or the modern rock sorta stuff? I think I prefer the modern rock.

just a great band, althought a love death, grind and thrash, Californication is my 5th fav. album of all time, just great music, you can never be mad listening to this band.

I like the Chili Peppers. I met Anthony at a friend of mines 12 Step meeting and he told his story and was really cool. I told him afterward that I thought his singing had really improved and he laughed and said "thanks, I've been working at it". I thanked him for the lyrics he wrote to Californication and he said they were among his favorite. Then he hugged me goodbye. 'Cause that's what 12 steppers do, I suppose. Anyway, I like 'em a lot and think they are a bit underrated. Which may not make sense to some, but it makes perfect sense if you admire them as much as I do. Really good band.

I got Mother's Milk, One Hot Minute and Freaky Styley last night off my Uncle, they're great.

I'm not so keen on the By The Way album...it was a bit bland.

Hearing the songs By The Way and then Power of Equality two years later were complete revelations for me, id never been touched by a song as much as i had been by By The Way and when I heard Power of Equality i suddenly realised in one moment I was in love with funk music. It was amazing.

I think they are a purely amazing band, californication was one amazing album, and whats better is that i heard there one of the most amazing live bands....thanks for the info on the new cd :)

Their good, but ni prefer the old funky stuff. Great live though, I have their Hyde Park CD and it sounds really good.

06-26-2005, 04:55 AM
They are among one of my favourite bands. I have all their albums post Mothers Milk including Live in Hyde Park as well as the live in Slane Castle and I fall in love with them more everytime I listen to them. Flea and John are great improvising in their live shows coming up with great little fills. If only they toured Australia more.

i have every album apart from the Abbey Road EP however its a compilation with fire and other songs on it, i hav also seen them live on their greatest hits tour at manchester they were brilliant and so was james brown! anywho i prefer they earlier stuff mother's milk is my favourite for funkiness however blood sugar sex magik and californication come close behind, whats your favourite song/album?

from the first to the recent albums, peppers never fail to amaze me. naming 5 bands who could do this for that long span of time is difficult.

06-26-2005, 05:43 AM
I like the One Hot Minute era music the most out of all of it, dunno why. It seems to me that it's a shame they don't (and won't) play any of some of the best music ever written. I like John, but Dave's work on this album was just sublime IMO.

I would like to hear John's interpretation of some of the OHM stuff, that's all I'm saying. I think you completely missed my point.

06-26-2005, 12:08 PM
I find I like the new stuff (By The Way, Can't Stop) and their old stuff (Higer Ground, Suck My Kiss) equally.

The Chilis are probably my favourite bands of the 90's. My brother has alot of their albums and I usually steal them. I bought him Mothers Milk for his birthday last year. BSSM or Californication are my 2 favourites.

06-26-2005, 05:00 PM
Did anyone notice that on the Live at Slane Castle DVD John uses the intro solo for kind of a basis for alot of his later solos? It got kind of annoying.

I still love that DVD, even though I think they should have ended on Under the Bridge.

06-26-2005, 05:29 PM
That's true, keeping with the theme of the concert I guess (solos). I reckon Power Of Equality was good to finish on.

I like "Californication", "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", "Can't Stop", and "Suck My Kiss". The basslines are what hook me, except for "Can't Stop". The funky guitar got my attention for that song. "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" also had the guitar I like, but Anthony's vocals got me on that one.
I like "One Hot Minute" because Dave brought some cool stuff with him. I like "Aeroplane" and "One Big Mob" off of it.

I thought By The Way was genius.

I don't know, it seemed much more mellow, and I do love some good mellowing songs, but BSSM sort of makes me wanna jam a bit more. I like it when I hear a band that makes me wanna jam.
I did like "Cabron" though. That song was cool. I didn't know how to really classify it. It sort of sounds like something you might hear on the streets of New Orleans or something.

'Tis a shame that the One Hot Minute stuff is completely ignored in concert now, even one of their more successful singles in 'My Friends'. I guess it's hard not to ignore at least one period in the Chili's 20 year career, as I'm missing the point that all the pre-BSSM material is being left out aswell. Down the road, on tour I would really like RHCP to throw in a random 'Jungle Man' or 'Backwoods' to the unsuspecting masses. I wonder how many people would be familiar with those tracks?

I just bought Scar Tissue. I always liked biography's and Anthony's extremely good at expressing his thoughts in words so I'm expecting good things from this.

Yeah they probably would never play those songs at a concert becasue it's not what the audience wants to hear. its a lot like that concert in toronto where it was the rolling stones, and all these other classic bands and then justin timberlake got up there and he got booed off stage. You have to please the crowd and your fans. They've changed so much over the years that the majority of the audience would be pissed off at what they were getting.

John's album curtains is out, and I just saw the video for the past recedes. (if you go to redhotchilipeppers.com there's a link that'll take you there) The song is really good. I always enjoyed his solo work but thought that his lyrics, though very personal and emotional, kinda slowed him down. Few can relate or understand what he's singing about.

06-27-2005, 04:32 AM
scar tissue is a rather interesting book, the main part i can remember from it is when he was shagging his girlfriend under the stage at an oasis gig and he hit a switch and he thought he turned all the power off but it was just in the room he was in

06-28-2005, 08:14 PM
Flea has a cool style. I think he's a good bassist. I prefer the earlier stuff he gave us, though, as compared to "By The Way". His basslines are still awesome and smooth now, but I liked the funkier stuff like from "Blood Sugar Sex Magik".
It actually makes me want to pick up their earlier stuff and have a good listen.

I'm listening to their cover of "Higher Ground", and I actually like it better than the original by Stevie Wonder.

Old RHCP is the best, Mother's Milk, BSSM, Breaking the Girl is, In my opinion one of their best songs.
Newer Chili Pepers doesn't impress me too much..

06-28-2005, 09:36 PM
For anyone who hasn't read Scar Tissue its a great book I'm not really into RHCP alot but it was pretty interesting hearing about how they got started. I really like John Frusciante's style and Anthony is one jazzy man.
My favorite song would have to be Give It Away that video is crazy.

I really like RHCP's cover of Sly and the Family Stone's 'If You Want Me To Stay' off of Freaky Styley.
I remember Mr. Bungle did a parody of RHCP on Halloween 1999 I believe. They mixed all the songs together, such as Give it Away, Around the World and Under the Bridge and Patton interpreted some really funny lyrics. Since there are more than 4 members in Mr. Bungle, one dressed up as a Chad Smith arabian fanboy, one as River Pheonix's ghost and another as Hillel Slovak's. Classic.

im a big Chilli Peppers fan...i think their music is amazing also...i think that this new album is gonna be more rock and maybe more hard core than the last album By the Way...It will be fun to see what they have in store for us.....i heard rumours that this new albumis to be called Ice Cream

but well i dunno...just have to wait and see

I've heard the Slane Castle performance is rather awesome.
I like "Fight Like A Brave" off of "The Uplift Mofo Party Plan". I confess I only heard it from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, but I liked the funky sound. I'm glad I liked it more than the pop punk on the soundtrack.
It's still a favorite of mine.

One of my favourite bands. It seems to me that Chad Smith could do so much better then he does during recording. He does some pretty good stuff at live shoes I've heard.

Brandnewlow
06-29-2005, 06:22 PM
Best band ever imo. Its crazy how john is still alive. I saw a bio on the chilis and it showed a video of john in his worst point to his addiction to heroein, crazy, his head was huge, and as someone said had 1/12 his bodys blood, pretty heartbreaking. And now he has no teeth because of his past, but his voice suits the chilis so well live like on dont forget me and otherside. My favourate song would have to be dont forget me, the live at slane version, that last solo is the most amazing and heavenly solo ive ever heard.

It seems to me that Chad Smith could do so much better then he does during recording

ya i got that too, but then again, all of them are much better live, but chad definately excells live. I guess they keep it simple when recording.

07-01-2005, 07:27 AM
They'd be fools to even say that. Flea isn't the best, as awesome as he is. They might have said best rock bassist, but best bassist ever? No. I wouldn't even say he's the best rock bassist ever. You can't really determine who is "best", you don't know what all they're completely capable of. Tim Commerford could be able to solo like Eddie Van Halen on bass and we may never know it because it doesn't seem to be his style. Nate Mandel may be able to play funkier rhythms than Flea and we may never know it because Foo Fighters are not funk influenced.
If they did say that he was the best ever, they've overlooked Jaco Pastorius, Stu Hamm(whom I've been told is freaking awesome), Les Claypool, numerous funk and jazz musicians, numerous rock bassists, etc.
While Flea is a geat bassist, he is in no way "the best".
I do admire his work, however. Very precise and very melodic. Nice stuff to really mellow out to.

07-01-2005, 07:33 AM
Flea is not the best bassist in the world

People who dont know about music as much as others come to that conclusion because he is one of the most characteristic bassists. Listen to Les Claypool of Primus for starters and then youll realize Flea isnt the best (still is a great bassist)

By the way its bull**** that AEROPLANE was left out of their greatest hits album

AEROPLANE is my favourite Chilli Peppers song and its a joke that it was left out :angry:

Shaft!
07-01-2005, 07:38 AM
Aeroplane is awesome. My friends and I were singing it through a theme park one time and we were almost kicked out for singing "that mother****ers always spiked with pain."
I like the bass and guitar in that song a lot.

ArmyofDarkness7
07-02-2005, 09:51 PM
the Red Hot Chili Peppers are a great band. they are my favorite.

although flea isn't the best bassist ever, he is my favorite bassist, next to Cliff Burton. Flea is one of the most creative and catchy bassists ever in my opinion. He did a very well done job on "Aeroplane" with his sexy slap bass line. And on "Higher Ground" with the awesome intro and the end of the chorus with he desending bass specialty; and "Stone Cold Bush"- unbelievable slap solo played live.

John has a beautiful voice and breathtaking solos like in "Soul to Squeeze" and beautiful riffs like "Under the Bridge" and one of the best guitarists in my opinon.

Anthony is one of the best frontmen i think, and my favorite next to Bruce Dickinson. He has a great voice.

Chad is very underrated and should get more attention. he is a great drummer live. and he fits the songs perfectly, and doesn't give you just the boring simple drum beat, he acutally improves them to be catchy.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are like Dream Theater: a band where ALL the members are super talented and hard to find a band with all the members like that. And another fantastic thing about them is they dont do just one genre music. they play any genre: Funk, rock, rap rock, soft rock, funk metal, rap metal, you name it. With songs from the beautiful riffs of "Under the Bridge" to the heavy punk of "Jungle Man" from the tear-making solo of "Soul to Squeeze" to the heaviness of "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" you name it. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are the greatest band to ever live.

SO anyone know when the new cd is coming out??
No idea. Late this year, early next year?
My best estimate. They were working fairly hard on it. I might just go with later on this year, maybe October-November?
I wish I knew. I'll do some reasearch.

It has recently been revealed that the band are finishing up work on their ninth studio album with the final vocals tracks being recorded. The songs that were debuted last summer are said not to be included on the album. John Frusciante has recently said the following: "There's heavier stuff than the band's ever done, and there's also a lot of beautiful, soaring melodies, I feel like everybody's taking their instrument to a new level." He has also cited that his favourite track off the album is entitled "Only 18". The band spent seven months writing and rehearsing before entering the studio to record. Flea has also said the following: "There are also a lot of ****ed-up aspects to it, all kinds of flaws and dirt that I like to hear on records." The band played a free concert in Las Vegas to celebrate the city's 100th aniversary with Weezer on July 2nd. Two new songs were played at this event.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are busy recording a new album. A release date is widely anticipated in early Autumn.

Flea didn't start playing bass until he was 17! and he is asome. I can't belive he just picked up a bass and just started playing it.

It's not like he was completely new to music though, he'd been playing trumpet for a long time before he touched a bass (people were saying that he was a borderline trumpet virtusoso), that and he grew up surround by musicians (father/step-father, i forget which, played upright bass in a jazz band)

it was his step-father. when his parents divorced, they moved to new york and his mom got married, and his new dad was a big jazz musician and played a lot of shows and let flea come along. so then flea started playing trumpet.

rhcp aren't anything like metal though, but i guess you could still like them. The only people who don't like the red hot chili peppers are people who haven't really heard songs outside their hits or just someone who just likes metal or somthing and dislikes all other kind of music. The thing that makes them so great is that they have lots of great songs outside of their greatest hits.

Frusciante. I can barely listen to them without him. However, Hillel was pretty good, I must admit.

Also, Dave Navarro is a talented guitarist, but his sound doesn't really fit in with the Chilis.

I don't have a favorite, as weird as that sounds. I've respected all of their guitarists. Hillel, Frusciante, Navarro, Flea, they're all excellent at their craft.
They make the sounds people love. I pretty much like everything from the Peppers so there's no point in choosing my favorite..
It'd be a hard choice to make for me.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are great. When By The Way came out I just listened to it over and over again. They are all such talented musicians and work so well together. Something that I really love about By The Way is the Magnificent vocal harmonising, Many a time when I'm singing along I'll sing the Harmony instead of the lead.

It was meant to be late this year, although that's been bumped back to early/mid 2006, for some reason. Hopefully just because they've got loads of material and have been busy with other things, rather than drugs, or anything like that. I heard rumours that Anthony may have relapsed, but obviously I don't know how accurate they are. Apparently the new album's going to be a combination of funkier stuff and the harmonies on By The Way, which sounds promising to me.

It sounds promising, but at the same time I can't help but feel that the album won't be all that great. To be honest, RHCP have failed to impress me on a large scale since BSSM. They're not all bad these days, but they're not that good either.

I really believe these guys are going to deliver. Is Rick Rubin producing? If so I think they can come up with something exceptional. I know they don't like to be backed into a corner creatively, and it never looks good when an album is pushed back, really. But if it is because they are working hard and the material just keeps coming, then some good stuff is around the corner, I'm sure. When the Chili's hit there stride they usually deliver the goods. I'm expecting a lot.

Well what can I say look at my username...

The Chili Peppers are by far my favorite band... period.
They got me into rock music and just completely changed my view and interest in music. The first album of theirs that I listened too actually knowing who they were was By The Way when I was about 10 or 11.( I actually remember hearing Otherside on the radio when I was like 8 years old and liking it 3 years before I even discoverd the band so it was awesome when i did discover them). After that me and my brother started exploring more into their music and buying pretty much all the rest of their albums. I am probably one of the few chili fans that actually likes their new more modern rock and their old Freaky Styley/funkier era equally. I honestly can't say I've heard a chilis song that I don't like and I have about 20 songs of theirs that are equally my favorite. They are such a great band because they made each one of their albums pretty much in a significantly different style and made them all masterfully.

If I had to pick my favorite song by them i would have to say Brother's Cup/Aeroplane/Under The Brigde /Power of Equality/Californication/I could have lied/Tear / The Zephyr song
but there are still others that are equlally my favy

As for predictions for the next album:
I think that they will start regressing back towards where the came form(more funky) because i really dont think that any of their current fans would like anything farther away from their funk roots(although i think by the way was still a great album)

'Tis a shame that the One Hot Minute stuff is completely ignored in concert now, even one of their more successful singles in 'My Friends'. I guess it's hard not to ignore at least one period in the Chili's 20 year career, as I'm missing the point that all the pre-BSSM material is being left out aswell. Down the road, on tour I would really like RHCP to throw in a random 'Jungle Man' or 'Backwoods' to the unsuspecting masses. I wonder how many people would be familiar with those tracks?

Freaky Styley is a great album, and it is their second album....and you already have it, so...
The Red Hot Chili Peppers (self titled) it's a good album.
If I were you I'd get The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (third album ). Hillel playes some great guitar in this album and Flea does some wicked awesome bass lines.

Then By The Way. It rocks. It's a genius record.
Then BSSM. This was their breakthrough, I think it's one of their best albums.
Then Californacation-this is good, Has some good tracks on it.
OHM is pretty good, but Dave kinda took them out of their regular style.

This is kind of a shame. There are some good cuts on that album. Some have already been mentioned, and I think Warped, One Big Mob, and Tearjerker are also worthy. Shallow Be Thy Game is another good rocker.

Navarro was never a good fit for this band, though. He's too much of a ROCK guitarist for the Chili Peppers. And I think most know what I mean by that. He just has a heavy handed style that didn't lend itself well to the band. But I suppose he served his purpose well while he was around. Now he's free to make cheesy reality TV shows, and host cheesy ones, as well. I'm not real fond of his celebrity activities these days :-\

^^Hell yeah, Slovak was brilliant. Just really a fantastic guitarist who understood his instrument and Chili Pepper music. And yes, of course talent goes far beyond speed and technicality. I think many beginners think speed and technicality set some sort of benchmark or something. And those who pursue it can sometimes become arrogant. I personally feel a musician should just take what they know and apply it to music they love to play. Whatever the genre. If it was all about shredding, well, it would be a pretty musically stale world out there.

Slovak knew what he was doing. And J.F. knows what he is doing, as well. Both excellent musicians in there own right.

01-04-2006, 01:53 PM
I don't really have a boundary of genres that I enjoy. As long as the musician puts soul into his/her music, i'm into it. But I have to admit, RHCP were the first band I really listened to, the first band I bought a CD of, and the first band I attempted to learn a song of.

If it weren't for Frusciante and Slovak I wouldn't be playing guitar.

^^lol

It's funny you should mention that. I grew up listening to all different kinds of genres. My mom was a single parent, and whoever she dated would often times have different musical tastes. So she would always get into different styles of music and play them all around the house. So I was exposed to country, old school funk, oldies, "classic rock", jazz, pop, and the whole spectrum, really, starting at a very early age. And her own taste was "alternative" (at least then. It was "pre grunge"). So i heard a lot. But I really didn't settle on a band/style of my own until I was 11 and saw The Kids Are Alright Who documentary. It just struck a chord with me. Then my mom found an old vinyl copy of Face Dances at a flea market, and that was it. I was introduced to my all-time favorite band. This is the point where I stoped simply hearing music, so to speak, and actually started to listen to it. Got my first guitar not soon after and learned I Can't Explain. And I swear to this day Townshend is the best rock guitarist ever. I have my reasons for thinking this. And although I know in reality he is not, he is to me. :)

ArmyofDarkness7 ,

you ve said everything i wanna say about rhcp, and it's great to feel that there are other people who feels the same love i feel about the band.

i adore rhcp and they re my life. i can play every single bass note,slap solos and i worship flea. i feel amazing when i listen to them and playing their songs.

only thing i want to add is i hate ppl who knows only by the way or californication. and i hate that they play nothing from freaky styley,umpp and mother s milk ( knock me down in particular ). if only they play organic anti beat box band, party pn your *****, funky crime,knock me down,jungle man, subway to venus, nobody weird like me and otherz just like in old days..if only..

Exact same with me.

I've always liked Slovak. His style is fantastic, he's unparalleled. True proof that talent goes far beyond speed and technicality.


I love Slovak, and Flea is my biggest influence. Without Hillel, Flea wouldn't play bass and therefore neither would I....It's a chain.

I love Hillel Slovak. Shame he's gone...

Hey IM from Mexico and im a really huge RCHP fan, im a basssist myself and im a huge fan of Flea, hes great. I was wondering, does any of you know the fingerings, Flea Uses in the Song "RIGHT ON TIME" from the Californication Album?, i believe he uses his 3 main fingers, but its actually easier if you play it with just 2 but any way, if you do know the exact fingerings, or have an acurate tab, score, or song book please let me know.

I don't know if it's funkier... but it's definitely heavier. They're bringing back a lot of funk metal influences, along with a lot of other styles thrown in. I think you're gonna be satisfied with the result though

Notice the plural of guitarists meaning more then one. J. Fru could spin circles around those wankers even if there are two of them or whatever.

This isn't news to me so I'm not excited, I probably won't buy the album but I hope John sing in a few songs, he has such a good voice.

Either that or he's an idiot.

I love Green Day and the reason they are more popular than other bands is because they are better than them.
That's one of his posts in a Green Day bashing thread. Who does he think he's kidding?

01-16-2006, 08:50 PM
First of all, I liked Green Day... until I discovered what actual music sounded like

Secondly, to compare the a7x guitarists to John is pointless in the first place. Some people are better than others depending on genre, I respect all 3 guitarists, but John above all.

Apparently, Live at Slane Castle DVD is pretty good. If you like the funky stuff, go for their earlier work. That's what I'm trying ot get more of.

Live At Slane Castle is great. Way better than Live At Hyde Park, I was really disappointed with it. Funk ftw.

robo2448, for funkier stuff try Freaky Styley or Uplift Mofo Party Plan. For heavier (similar to Blood Sugar Sex Magik) stuff try Mother's Milk. If you like their newer stuff have listen to By The Way.

Flea was one of the many big inspirations to me (obviously!) but the whole band in general is just flat out awesome. music wise their older music was harder to play, although their new stuff is very good as well. i give the older stuff a little edge over the newer stuff. I cant wait for the release of their next album. does anyone know when its comin out?
