hey ron, have you ever heard of a band called the red hot chilli peppers ? if you ever get the chance you should go and see them live, i think you might like them
i've actually seen bands that were playing to thousands of people and they were like zombies: son volt, the wallflowers for starters. blood sugar sex magic is, i think, their best album. that album is one of my all-time favorites. and sure, there is less funk, but when they bring it, they bring it!
nope. never. nope.
i've seen the chili peppers twice myself. first @ lollapalooza in '92 without john frusciante and then in 2001 with. both shows were great and lots of energy and thats to be expected of bands that play 20,000 seat amplitheaters. the last couple of records they have lessened their music with funk and actually slowed down songs and seemed to really emphasize songwriting and broadening their creative process by adding moogs in a very subtle way. anthony kiedis' voice may not be the greateast but his style of funk/rock/rap singing fits the music. it may not have great range but most male singers don't. doesn't anyone remember the topic about Jeff's voice? some people were saying that it was the "weak spot" in the IDAHO sound, but without out it's not IDAHO. same debate is possible with any band.
ironyman? what? sure, you're entitled to your opinion, but you're still wrong about 'em. sure, you can think what you want, but...
hey ho lets go ron the ironyman. i might be a close minded one but that is my opinion. and as far as i know i am pretty free to think whatever i want. but thank you for your opinion.
I went and saw the Chili Peppers 2 years ago and it was definately a great show, they had tons of energy and played really well together. At one point in time they did play awesome funk rock but after this last album I think they are getting a little soft. I haven't seen them on this tour, but Ron i'm sure your right, they probably still rock just as hard.
so are you music fans for genre nazis? i mean, seriously. i absolutely love IDAHO. i think they're seriously one of the greatest bands i've ever heard. they're original and talented and real and all that other stuff. but in the same right, the chili peppers are just as amazing. just because they aren't in the same genre as IDAHO or RHP or Low or whatever doesn't mean they're not good. sure, you can choose not to like them, but you can't say they're not great at the funk rock.
JR: it's good to hear you're keeping an open mind. and it's good to hear you're basing an opinion of a band off a TV appearance. good call.
i bought some of their cds and thought they were pretty good once. then i saw them play live on tv and it sounded like shit. they needed a second guitarist and a vocalist that could sing. i will never lend them my ears or/and attention again.
I saw them back in fourth grade and thought it was pretty amazing. The singer sprained his ankle dancing around so much, so he came back out with a cane and proceeded to hop around on one leg.
i know this is an IDAHO message board and everything, but i've gotta say this: i saw the red hot chili peppers last night. it was one of the best shows i've ever seen by anyone... ever. first of all, John Frusciante absolutely stole the show. now, i don't care what kind of music you like or whatever, but this guy cannot be denied. secondly, they were tight as hell. thirdly, i got the sense that they genuinely love playing live and being in a band. and with their success, who wouldn't, right?
