RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Honor ‘EDDIE’ VAN HALEN

New striking strokes

Between their 11th LP The Getaway and this year’s double one Unlimited Love,
there was a time gap of six years and now RHCP are gearing up for their 2nd double album this year. Good job, guys.

It’s baptized Return Of The Dream Canteen and
hits the streets on 14 October. More info here.

One of the tracks is called EDDIE in memory of guitar wizard
Eddie Van Halen who passed away (almost) 2 years ago.

Anthony Kiedis ‘frontman): “Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind. The day after his death Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started playing along and pretty soon with all our hearts, a song in his honor effortlessly unfolded. It felt good to be sad and care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives. Although the song doesn’t speak to Eddie by name, it talks about his early days on the Sunset Strip and the rock n roll tapestry that Van Halen painted on our minds. In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream.”

A full-hearted ditty for Eddie.

The PEPPERS Are Really Red Hot – Their Second Double Album Of 2022 Hits The Streets In October

Notorious funk-punk-rock celebrities RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS just announced a new double album, coming in October, only six months after Unlimited Love, also a double longplayer, made thier millions of devotess happy last Aptil.

Weird guys. Between 11th LP The Getaway and this year’s Unlimited Love there was
a time gap of six years and now they bomb us with 2 double ones in just 6 months.

The new one is named Return Of The Dream Canteen
and will be dropped on 14th October via Warner Records.

Press statement: “We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly.”

And Flea and Kiedis broke the news heir way,
on stage, two nights ago in Denver, Colorado

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Released One Of Their Best Albums ‘BY THE WAY’ 20 Years Ago Today

Back in time

9 July 2022

Band: RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS (Los Angeles)
Active: Since 1983 / 12 LPs (so far), with this
year’s Unlimited Love as the most recent one.

Anniversary album: BY THE WAY – 8th LP
Released: 9 July 2002 – 20 years ago today

NME said: “By god is it ever long (it’s 16 tracks), but on the whole it showcases
enough of what makes the Chili Peppers a very good rock group – chief among
these are John Frusciante’s excellent, inventive guitar playing, and the fact that
it is with tremendous conviction that Anthony Kiedis belts out even the most
ridiculous words.”
Score: 7/10.

TUTV: I’m not an ardent RHCP fan, but this LP is their best ever to my
ears, after deleting the 6 not-so-good tracks out of the total of 18.

Singles/clips: By The Way / The Zephyr / Can’t Stop
