Búcsú Anthony Kiedis apjától

Tegnapelőtt este Grand Rapidsban, Anthony Kiedis szülővárosában lépett fel a Red Hot Chili Peppers, és elég érzelmesre sikeredett a koncert. Anthony közölte a közönséggel, hogy az apja, Blackie Dammett hamarosan meg fog halni, és egy kis szeretetet kért tőlük, majd eljátszották a Soul To Squeeze-t.

…If you could be so kind. My father is fixin’ to die and that’s OK. He’s had a wild, great journey and a helluva colourful badass life but he’s sick and he’s gonna to die now.. He’s pretty lost; he’s just a spirit but I would like for everyone just to take ten seconds to send him some love, to send his spirit some love because pretty soon he will be sailing on and I would appreciate it if his home town could send him love for a whole ten seconds of love. Let’s give it up. Ten!
Thank you. Let’s do this tune. Appreciate it.

Anthony Kiedis beszél arról, hogy miért hiányzik neki John Frusciante


Ha jól emlékszem, mióta John Frusciante elhagyta a Red Hot Chili Pepperst, a zenekar tagjai nem szívesen beszélnek erről, és nem is nagyon kerül szóba a dolog. Most viszont Anthony Kiedis egy interjúban megosztotta gondolatait Johnról, és hogy miért is hiányzik neki.

“[John is] a very special person to me, a special person to many people, but my experience with John was one of the most wonderful and easiest people to make music with. We could sit down on the floor, John and I, and I could take out a piece of paper, and I would say, ‘Okay, I wrote these words.’ He would say let me see those words, he would read them, and go okay. He would start to play something, I would start to sing it, and I would say, ‘Can you play something that feels like this?’ He would say, ‘Okay, let me try this.’ Then we would have a song. Never did I meet someone who was so easy to write songs with, and really good songs.

If I called him up and said, ‘I’m very sad today,’ he was like, ‘come over right now, we’re writing a song.’ So I would bring my sadness to John: ‘Sit down, get the notebook, start writing your feelings.’ Then we would have a song.

I miss him, but I also accept the separate lives. But I miss him.”
