Ain’t got me a John Frusciante

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Dearest Nibblers,
Sad news….
Wednesday, December 16,2009 marked a sad day for The Red Hot Chili Peppers and their fans. After a year the band has been on hiatus John announced that he quit the band for the second time over a year ago.

Makes you wonder what else the RHCP has kept from us since stadium arcadium broke out.
This news also makes us wonder if the band can ever really keep it together. The guitarist slot has forever been a revolving door and John has forever been a person you couldn’t depend on. Ever since he joined RHCP when he was just 18 he has had ideas of his own and a free will no one could tame.

With the band going into the studio to cut a new record this year what can we expect? Will we get a one hot minute rerun? Should they even go on without John?

The year RHCP was recording stadium arcadium Flea reported that he had considered quitting the band because of John. Do you think things will get better? I think I will always remember them for their earlier days as a band and whatever comes will come. At this point I think they have been through so many ups and downs that it’s a free for all and I really don’t care anymore. If they come out with a stellar album I will be happy and if it’s mediocre like it has been for a while now it really won’t make a difference.

 Harsh words coming from a devoted fan (me).

PS. Chad the dummer is also going solo. But will he stay with the band?? I guess we’ll have to wait and see

Listen to classic RHCP

Bring back the 90s and “HEROIN CHIC” while you’re at it!

Fashion will go one step further. It’ll be more than heroin chic. It will OD. FASHION SUICIDE….

Oh if those words were true. Too bad they were only in a bubbly Jennifer Gardner movie- 13 going on 30.

I miss the 90s and I feel like I am the only one. I miss Kate Moss on the runway- before she had too much money to decide that she doesn’t like to walk the runway. And I miss James King looking strung out in every fashion campaign. Please see photo….

I miss 90s rock.

Where’s Jane’s Addiction? Where is the classic Red Hot Chili Peppers? Where is the anti attitude? Anti happiness? Anti 80s excess? Where are the singer songwriters of the 90s that would rock out the Lilith fair? Nine Inch Nails  isn’t even touring anymore- I mean c’mon people! The 2000s are so LAME!!! With the rise of horrible teeny bopper bands such as Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, the “Jo Bros” and Miley Cyrus there isn’t much to live for musically anymore.

Music used to mean something other than money. It used to express emotions other greed and mindlessness. People used to get high and actually think! Can you believe that? There used to be people in the world that had drug addictions that would willingly escape reality only to come up with some of the best lyrics some of the best thoughts- ideas on the face of the earth. Not that I’m supporting drug use, addiction or experimenting with any of those. What I am trying to say that it’s sad that now a days “musicians” can’t come up with decent lyrics. They can’t create magic or that feeling people used to get by listening to a really great song. No one gets goosebumps anymore by just listening to that one song on the radio. Today kids go “OMG that’s the jam! That’s my song!” But really what are these songs saying? That we should put our hands in the air- oh my bad it’s not even “AIR” anymore it’s “Ayer” like we just don’t “Cayer”. How more idiotic can this country be?? Am I the only one that is disappointed in the direction today’s culture is heading and/or has already gone? *sigh*

Bite me- Literally.
