It's just so...last ditch cash grab...who cares? I see a few...but it just feels too hollow imho

Is anyone seriously expecting anything of value (aside the all mighty dollar) to come outa this?
Blood Sugar Sex Magik 30th anniversary tour in 2021. Playing the album in it's entirety.

Followed by a re-release of the album in an expanded edition that costs 250 dollars and has a bunch of demos of the songs on the album.

Followed by a live album of them playing BSSM in it's entirety. Expanded edition 90 dollars containing other select live cuts.

I'd say wait and listen to the new album, then judge. Perhaps they can come up with something interesting, I fuckin doubt it, but who knows

That is funny :thumb:

All this has got me back to SA. Love these albums, especially the deep cuts with the layered gutars of Froosh and Omar Rodriguez Lopez. So different than BSSM (which I consider their masterpiece), but the layered/dueling geets on Turn it Again is some magic. :rockon:

The sweetest guy around, it seems...great interview

Saw Dot Hacker open for Jane's at the Echoplex I believe....remarkable band as creativity goes.

Apparently Klinghoffer is opening for Pearl Jam on one of their upcoming tours.

Not sure if USA or Europe.

New JK interview. SUPER interesting and much darker than the Maron one.

FWIW, Eric A. unfollowed Flea on social media. Clearly he is pissed that his friend got tossed.

Really articulate and expressive in his use of language...really the opposite of JF. The whole thing seems a bit underhanded. Oh well, still hoping for something from the 3.0 JF version.

I went to a "live" movie of them basically rehearsing for the IWY tour and JK was abysmal, which now makes sense when I read him relate that he really couldn't play guitar. Thx for the article...went completely under my radar.

I'm curious why they didn't ask him to take back his original place in the band and play backing guitars/vocals and keyboard?

At least give him the option? He seems concerned about his finances. This at least gives him a job, keeps him in the family, etc

It's like getting laid off from a management position while the company is hiring for a subordinate position you were highly competent at.

I’m not sure I understand... what does he mean when he says he didn’t play guitar before...?

Did they replace Frusciante with a guy who didn’t know how to play guitar?

That would be outstanding in many levels, one of which links to Josh’s demand that they should jam some more in order to compose songs and that they should record playing together in the studio. Like... you don’t even know how to play, shut up.

I think he had a rudimentary understanding. He played backing geets and keys for them before, however when I saw him opening for Jane's with Dot Hacker he never touched one.

As for his finances....I thought that was a bit weird. He may have a really high threshold for what makes him (or his parents) comfortable and secure. He must have done really well with them over the decade. And maybe they changed their 25% thing specically for him. :noclue:

As for EA 'unfolowing' Flea....that's hilarious. No one cares.

Its not "much darker" Noonesshocking, what are you talking about? Not to me anyway

I heard Josh say once that he "dropped out of high school so he could play guitar". It confllicts with what he's saying here of course

They want John back because he's a songwriter, Josh is not (even though John 2.0 really only has written one really good song: Scar Tissue, but RHCP don't realize that, they're ok with Cabron and that type of stuff)

The Maron interview was all smooches and hugs. Like literally no bad or weird vibes whatsoever.

In this one, his emotional state is more raw, he worries about his finances, says he doesn’t like the albums he made with them, laments their creative process, and at one point suggests only somewhat jokingly that bringing John back is for record sales and that their relationship will likely go bad again. I’d say my description sticks :thumb:

The thing about him not playing guitar - I think he just means that at the time he was asked, he had not been playing much guitar. Probably was into other things.

that's pretty sad that he wasn't putting money away. I'm sure it wasn't an even split but I'm sure he did pretty well.

you're right, seems like I read that thing a bit too fast or something...
