Man, The Chilipeppers are one of the greatest bands out there... these days everyone is emo or indie and someone needs to backhand them into another dimension... Well maybe just the emo kids, but shit! quit hatin on the peppers
People are over them. The music they put out last year is the exact same as 5-6 years ago. We are tired of them. Let's get a break and then see what they do in a few years. A world tour last year kinda took the wind out of the sail as far as headlining coachella goes.
i absolutely loved "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", but Under The Bridge was the death knell for this band. Because that song was such a hit Keidis got the impression he could sing. HE CAN'T !
so instead of anymore fun punk/rap songs since Blood Sugar we've had 15 years of Under The Bridge Part Deux.
I don't think anyone is doubting their interesting formative years, but since the late ninenties (if not earlier) they have been utter and complete shit. If we could somehow get Flea, John and Chad to play alone with guest singers it would be far more interesting.
Just curious as to how many people who are konocking the peppers have seen them live in the past few years. I'm by no means a massive fan but saw them live in Manchester last year and they played a great set, only 3 songs from the current album and a lot of older material.
Most of all I found out what a great guitarist Frusciante is, one of the best rock guitarists on the circuit today.
they have one of most disappointing "live" sounds i have ever heard.
i love flea, but even he can't save the weak vocals and limp guitar they mix at their shows
it is utterly horrible
i saw them just last year, only a handful of old songs
and for the 1st 10 minutes there was at least 10,000 people chanting "turn it up, turn it up"
