Flea szerint a rockzene halott


Nemrég volt egy interjú Flea-vel, ahol többek között felfedte, hogy a Go Robot lesz az új kislemez, de szóba került a 90-es évek, amikor még a Pearl Jammel és a Smashing Pumpkinssal turnézott a Red Hot Chili Peppers, ennek kapcsán fejtette ki a véleményét a mai rockzenéről.

“I just remember being so excited that we were playing with [Pearl Jam] and with Smashing Pumpkins, because it was just an exciting time for rock music. A lot of times, especially recently, I look at rock music as kind of a dead form in a lot of ways. Nothing to take away from us and [Pearl Jam], because obviously I believe we’re relevant bands that come with a real energy,” he continued.

“But if you’re a kid today, and you get in a rock band, it’s like – when we were kids, when I said I want to be in a rock band and that’s what I’m doing for my life, that’s what I was going to do, no question. You’d get: ‘You are a fucking lunatic, you are crazy. You’re never going to get a decent job in your life. What are you doing? You’re ruining your life.”

“I was like fuck it, I don’t care, this is what I want to do, this means everything to me, I found a home. I’ve been a weird, neurotic, loner kid all my life, I was always the kid you called fag in high school, punk rock gave me a home. But nowadays, you decide you want to be in a rock band it’s like, ‘Oh great, let’s get you an image consultant, and a lawyer, and a manager, and let’s see what we can do here. It’s a great money making opportunity for you junior.”

Josh Klinghoffer is basszusgitározik az új lemezen

Josh Klinghoffer egy igazi multitalentum, erről már elég sokszor tanúbizonyságot tett, hiszen dobol, szintetizátorozik, gitározik, de most azt is megtudhatjuk milyen amikor a basszusgitárt veszi a kezébe, ugyanis az új Red Hot Chili Peppers lemezen az egyik dalban -a The Hunterben- ő fog basszuson játszani.

A Red Hot Chili Peppers új lemeze, a The Getaway június 17-én fog megjelenni.
