Thread: RHCP kicked ass , lets say sorry.

    Default RHCP kicked ass , lets say sorry.

    I wasn't there but watching the live feed RHCP tore it up. Give some respect for this much hated band. The new guitarist was one of the best of the weekend. Yeah we all hate them , but they came through. Respect to the whole band, nice show.

    I saw them at the Staples Center and out of the 3 dozen bands I've seen over the last few years they actually had the most energy and crowd appeal right behind Foo Fighters. Normally the crowds I see are very passive in relative terms, there's some cheers, people dancing etc, but I never seen a crowd get as riled up, or as loud as the show at the RHCP show in August. You could actually FEEL the cheers just like you could feel the sound from the speakers. It's really amazing when you see them in a place like that honestly. Only band to have more stage presence has been Foo Fighters, though Muse puts on a damn good show too but I think a lot of people like Muse cause of stupid Twilight bullshit.

    Korbinn I know you mean well, HOWEVER you just ended this for yourself, UNLESS you have thick skin. How thick is your skin Korbinn?

    what roboto said. Wasn't planning on seeing them but what I saw on the stream made me rethink. Klinghoffer really surprised me as well - that guy's really good indeed.
    Just hope their weekend II show will be equally good!

    I'm a dinosaur so I'd say roughly 4inches thick.

    And I don't mean anything. I like what I like people like what they like, I'm only saying what it's like to be there. I could tell you what the crowd was like from bands like Smashing Pumpkins, to Muse, to STP, to Airborne, to Scars on Broadway, etc. All I know is that it feels like, the crowd is rather listless at a majority of the shows I go to. Honestly at one show the only one really rocknig out was an old man around 60 years old, kinda sad honestly. Maybe EDM and shit is where it's at now?

    you are in that stage where energy equals quality. However most here would argue a redbull just doesnt compare to a gourmet dinner. Yeah youre hyped up , but for what? We indulge on lobster , you ingulge on tuna packed with meth.

    meh it's not exciting to be at a show where the crowd is as listless as the band is. When people are just standing there, and the band's playing mindlessly, it's not an entertaining show. If nobodys excited to be there, what's the point is what I think.

    also your analogy is deeply flawed because one, lobster is overrated, second seafood is gross and contaminated with mercury, some with more than others.
    Just saying.

    i've always thought they were awful live.
    it's not the band i hate, it's their fans.

    They sounded exactly as any stand alone arena act should sound. That by no means meant they were good. Putting "heart" into soul less music is all bad
    Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls

    And if for some reason you don't get a chance to say your sorry at Coachella, you can do that at Outside Lands were they will be headlining AGAIN.

    That's a terrible reason to sit through a set.

    Flea and the new guy were the most energetic people of the whole weekend.

    They sucked ass in 2007, and I was actually excited to see them back then.

    I was there in 07. The crowd there was huge. Seemed like half the festival came to catch the set, crowd was at least 3x as big as Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, etc. Can't remember the rest of the line up that year....was so long ago. Bet the crowd won't be half as big this time though...lol

    brilliant. couldnt have said it better myself.

    To be fair rock music is not adequately represented this year; its an EDM year.

    its just unfortunate that most of the the 'rock' acts this year catered to the hipster (La Roux, ((synthpop but same shit)), Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse, Tame Impala, etc.), as opposed to the fan of rock, and live music; last year was a much more balanced lineup...it was way more lobster than meth-stuffed tuna; but i completely agree with your post nonetheless

    hahahahaha you spelled bass wrong, unless you meant that Flea is a god of freebase cocaine, which would be a weird observation

    I made it 4 minutes in... atrocious. The guitarist's backing vocals were unbearable, not to mention Keidis being out of key

    Wow. I knew they sucked, but jeez. Kiedis really can't sing. At all. That's painful. Maybe it sounded better if you were there?
