Some miscellaneous facts about the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
(1) When he was a kid, singer Anthony Kiedis had some gigs as an actor. You can see him playing Sylvester Stallone’s son for all of six seconds in a 1978 movie called F.I.S.T. He was about 14 at the time.
(2) Flea is a rabid fan of the LA Lakers. He even wrote for a blog on the team at NBA.com.
(3) Chad Smith, the drummer, is a hockey fan. He played a lot of minor hockey growing up in Detroit. He was the goalie.
And (4) John Frusciante used to be a hopeless heroin addict. It got so bad that he lost all his teeth, something that look more than $70,000 to fix. (Yeah, you heard me: 70 grand on dental work.) The good news is that John is healthy today. He meditates and runs every day.
Who invented rock? That was the subject of yesterday’s post.
