Records are in rough chronological order, rough because I don't have exact release dates. If anyone can help me with this...
"True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" by Dave Thompson has been recommended to me as a great source of RHCP info, but I haven't read it.
Also: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Xavi Cervantes, 1995. Ed: Editorial La Mascara. ISBN 84-7974-091-4 (spanish)

Out in LA (will add info) "The Out In LA record is actually an excuse by EMI to publish their first demo tape recorded in Bijou Studios in LA in the Autumm of 1983 by Mark "Rooster" Richardson's advice. In fact, the band was not RHCP yet but Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem. The other material published in Out In LA is clearly there for filler." -email@example.com (Andres Guevara)

About the credit of Flea on Big Audio Dynamite's albums, I really think it's a confusion with someone of the BAD road crew, how could he have something to do with "Megatop Phoenix" which is a total crap ? email@example.com (Yvan Jacquet) played trumpet in Fishbone and Thelonious Monk members' Trulio Disgracias. That's were he met Arik "The Freak" Marshall. After John Frusciante left, they occasionally played with the name "The Tree Amoebas". The 3rd ameba could be River Phoenix, whom Flea tried to re-animate when he died overdosed. firstname.lastname@example.org (Andres Guevara) I beleive the third amoeba i[s] Steve Perkins -Joseph.Breen@cazr.dwe.csiro.au (Joseph Breen) Flea is the barman in Butthole Surfers' video "Who was in my room last night". He gives the main character a smokey cocktail that makes him hallucinate. -email@example.com (Andres Guevara) with Algerian rai singer Rimitti, in which you can hear him play bass accompaning that 70 years old voice, with a background made of synth beds and Magrebbian ethnic instruments, such as a gamelan and others.

He's also credited on the album (in the 'thanks to' section). The track has never surfaced, unfortunately - Friso Kuiper <firstname.lastname@example.org> Jack Irons: I met Jack Irons in Lyon (France) in 1990 when he was drumming with the ex-Clash leader Joe Strummer but I suppose he's not doing it anymore since Joe Strummer is now singing with The Pogues. - email@example.com (Yvan Jacquet) Flea & Hillel: Keith Levene - "Violent Opposition" on "If 6 was 9" ( Hendrix ) ( Oh yeah, Angelo from Fishbone is on this cut too...)

The movie database has Flea listed as in this movie, but it has not been checked. "He (+Jack Irons+Cole Dammett(?fake name for Anthony(his father used to call himself Blackie Dammett))) is listed in the credits I look for him in the scenes when they are in a club where a RHCP song (Fight lik a Brave) is playing, but couldn't make him out. There is a band in the background, but they are hidden by the crowd." -Joseph.Breen@cazr.dwe.csiro.au (Joseph Breen) Dudes (1987, Cineworld) Plays a punker named Milo who gets killed (Directed by Penelope Spheeris, who directed Wayne's World) The Blue Iguana (1988, Polygram) "The only reason to see the Blue Iguana is Flea, whose pistol packing goon is killed off entirely too soon. His (and the films) best moment comes in the scene in which he turns funkmaster and jams big time to James Brown's 'Sex Machine'." - The Motion Picture Guide, 1989 annual, CineBooks, Evanston, p. 27 Plays "Floyd". Let's Get Lost (1989, Zeitgeist) the story of Chet Baker (famous trumpet player) Back to the Future 2 (1989, Universal) he's done up as an old man, and plays Doug Needles ( Michael J.

Roadside Prophets (1992) Too Free Stooges Motorama (1992,?) a busboy at a restaurant that the main character stops. He helps him to steal some gas from a patron's car.

I think they won. :-) Everyone: Nike ad with Andre Agassi. The chilis play unfunky rock as Agassi plays tennis with a light show. Something about the Rock 'n roll school of tennis Late Night with David Letterman (I= firstname.lastname@example.org (Ray Kuo) ) I saw them about two years ago on this show which started out called "Sunday Night" or something like that and was changed to "Michelob presents Night Music" and was hosted by David Sanborn. They used to show a lot of interesting groups along with some really neat jazz. I remember seeing the Residents, Sun Ra, Jack Bruce, and some rap group on this show. Anyways, the Chili Peppers were on here and they played Subway to Venus and Sexy Mexican Maid. Flea wore his trademark stuffed animal pants, and they were totally spastic, jumping all around and raising their usual hell. At the end of one of the songs, while John was wailing away in a feedback frenzy, Anthony did a handstand and walked into John, nailing the guitar with his crotch. They both went crashing and flailing onto floor, ending the song. Cracked me up! You might also want to add that they hosted City Limits (Much Music's alternative show) but I can't be certain if they did the whole show... And they did a great interview last year on MM which had to be censored when it was replayed later on in the evening. (It was shown live the first time...). - email@example.com (Oliver Postlethwaite) Saturday Night Live, Feb. 22, 1992. Played Stone Cold Bush & Under the Bridge i heard the chilis and nirvana were on the ABC In Concert show friday night [4/19/92]. friends say that it was pathetic though.. no live concert footage just under the bridge and give it away videos with a couple of questions for the band. - firstname.lastname@example.org ( Jay) Played "Give it Away" on the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards - the stage was awash in people dancing, and Flea was only wearing a baggy pair of underpants. They also won the Breakthrough Video and Viewer's Choice awards. Angelo Moore (fishbone), Ice T and Dave Abruzzesse (ex-Pearl Jam) joined them on stage. [thanks email@example.com (Andres Guevara) for catching Ice T and Dave!] The Larry Sanders Show - they were announced guests but weren't shown because that's the kind of show it is, so they didn't really appear, but in some sort of wierd alternate universe they DID appear so that's why they're listed here. Played on the 1993 Grammy Awards I've just got to say that watching the Chili Peppers and George Clinton's Funk All-Stars (I think that's the name) perform "Give It Away" for the Grammys was unbelievable. George may be getting up there in years, but the man (and his band) is still talented as hell. A friend of mine commented that Arik Marshall looked as if he felt outclassed... -firstname.lastname@example.org (Jeremy Lyn Hart) In the 1993 Grammy Awards, Anthony kissed Eddie Vedder in the mouth. -email@example.com (Andres Guevara) The Simpsons, "Krusty Gets Kanceled", [9F19], originally broadcast 5/13/93 (last episode of season 4), w/ Ari Marshal.

About the behind the sun video, have you notice that it's exactly the same video that the one for "Higher Ground" ? Only the background have changed (the paintings) and the cuts (?) are different because of the tempo of the song ... - firstname.lastname@example.org (Yvan Jacquet) Psychadelic Sex-Funk Live From Heaven (live - 40 minutes) (from Positive Mental Octupus tour, Long Beach, CA) There's also a video called I think "Skate Rock" or something like that which was a Vision Street Wear sponsored skateboard contest which the chili peppers played live for. Lots of cool skating and flea going haywire. This is circa Hillel and Jack. Funky Monk (60 minutes) it is mostly a "cockumentary" as anthony says. it was filmed by a friend of theirs when they were recording the album and has just little tid bits of all sorts of things, like anthony singing, to flea playin, and john trying to be really deep and stupid, and so on and so on. theres no real music in it, dont expect any videos if you buy it. whether or not its any good depends on your tastes, some friends of mine wish they never saw it cause they have lost most of their respect for the chilis. -email@example.com ( Jay) the O'Neil Surf Video - Funky Crime What Hits (EMI, 1992)
Misc Info- fIREHOSE interview #2 with Mike Watt (3/5/92). K ==> (interviewer) firstname.lastname@example.org (Brian K!z!K MacDonald) M ==> Mike Watt K: Well, anyway, the Chili Peppers dedicated their latest album to you. What do you have to say about that....? M: SOUNDS LIKE SHIT, STEVE! [Turning and directing his displeasure at the soundman] ....[Turning back to me].... Ok, what do you want me to think about that -- I thought it was a very sweet thing of Flea and Anthony. I don't know the two new guys so much. Well, I GOTTA tell ya, about the Chili Peppers. I mean, the first Chili Pepper gig was opening for Minutemen, so we go way back...Flea and Anthony. Anthony Kiedis was chosen as one of the 1993(?) 10 Worst Dressed in the October 29, 1993 issue of People Magazine
Bio - (A special thank you to email@example.com (Karin Zirk), who typed the following in - what follows is almost verbatim of the mail I received from her) Here is the official Red Hot Chili Peppers Biography as put out by the Rockinfreakapotamus Peoplehood, Inc. (August 1990) Red Hot Chili Peppers were conceived in 1983 in a living room in Hollywood where four close buddies from Fairfax High School (Anthony Kiedis, Hillel Slovak, flea and Jack Irons) performed an acappella rehearsal for a performance to take place at the legendary Rhythm Lounge. The performance consisted of one song, "Out In L.A." which, traditionally, remained their opening song in every live show to date. [Up to November '89 definitely not for BSSM tour in '91, maybe not for '90 tour - lsh] The band soon developed a strong following in Los Angeles, something unheard of considering the fact that the band had only been in existence for a couple of months and had not yet pressed a single album. It was at this point that Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons decided to continue their prior commitment in their former band, WHAT IS THIS?, while Flea (also formerly a member of WHAT IS THIS?) and Anthony Kiedis recruited Jack Sherman (guitar) and Cliff Martinez (drums). After being signed to EMI Records this line-up recorded the band's first and self-titled debut album. In 1985 Hillel Slovak rejoined the group while Sherman pursued a career as a studio musician. The band recorded their second album, FREAKY STYLEY, in Detroit with the FUNK GOD, George Clinton, acting as producer. In 1986 Cliff Martinez was replaced by Jack Irons, reuniting the original line-up. The band's third LP entitled THE UPLIFT MOFO PARTY PLAN was released in 1987 and, as always, the "Hardest working band in show business" followed it's release with a ridiculously extensive tour. They maintained as unusually huge (sold out) live audience, considering their record company had chosen to ignore them purely because of their confusion about the band's type of music. Nevertheless, the tour was great success. In June 1988 Hillel Slovak died, leaving Anthony, Flea and Jack devastated at the loss of a beautiful friend. It was as that time that Jack Irons left the band, unable to continue with a constant reminder of such an intense loss. [He ended up playing with Pearl Jam -firstname.lastname@example.org (Andres Guevara)] Anthony and Flea made the choice to continue on. Anthony says "Flea and I realized that we couldn't stop because of the death of our best friend. It was going to be a permanent source of sadness in our lives, but we wanted to keep the Red Hots going because, after five years, it had become our lives." Anthony and Flea then set out to find two partners who would not only be top of the line musicians, but lifelong friends as well. Enter John Frusciante, a then 18-year old guitarist who Flea knew from impromptu jams in those recent months. Anthony happened to be present while John was trying out with another Hollywood band, Thelonius Monster. It was via this try-out the John joined the Peppers. John recalls, "Anthony heard me that day and went home to tell Flea that I should be a Pepper, not a Monster. Anthony then called me and told me the same thing and that I was now an equal member of the Red Hots." "They were my favorite band in the world. I knew every lyric, every guitar part, every solo, and bass part, and had always felt their music to be a source of peace and beauty in my life. I always felt very spiritually and philosophically connected with the band's ideals and way of life. The moment I joined the band was probably the most intense rush of pure happiness I will ever experience in my life." Finding a drummer was more difficult. After auditioning, and playing with about 40 drummers, none of whom had the mind, body, spirit, and cock that was necessary to be a Pepper, the threesome found Chad Smith. "Chad is a human power plant behind the drums" says Anthony. "He gives it all he has and looks hysterical doing it." As Flea so eloquently puts it, "He has the soul of ten thousand soul monkeys from outer space." Anthony, John, Flea and Chad jumped right into recording their most recent album, MOTHER'S MILK and, following it's release, began a nine month tour of the world and elsewhere. MOTHER'S MILK was a success, both artistically and financially, bringing the band their first Gold Album. On June 16, 1990, the band was introduced at the Greak Theater, (in L.A.) by none other than David St. Hubbins of the legendary group Spinal Tap, which the band apparently feels is the greatest honor a group could receive, in this day and age. Now that this current line-up is, as Flea puts it, "Tighter than a mosquito's asshole," they are putting their bodies, brains and sexual organs to work to write and record the best music that GOD and the cosmic forces that be will allow them to make. About their direction John claims, "The funky stuff will be funkier, the heavy stuff will be heavier, and the melodic stuff will be more beautiful. Some of it will just be out. Our lives are based on our music and vice-versa and we just want to keep expanding while retaining the energy and flame of cosmicity that this band has had from day one." At the time this is being written (August 1990) Anthony is spending the better part of his time with his beautiful girlfriend - Carmen, John with his cigarettes, Flea with his confusion and Chad, in the presence of the Martocci moment. Red Hot Chili Peppers is not four individuals, but one Positive Mental Octopus. It is here to spread love and peace to whoever wants it. For those of you in search of the meaning of life: find a good burrito place, eat there and be kind to your fellow man. ************************************** Notes: Gina Martocci is Chad's girlfriend and the moment is sexual. They played four of the new songs on New Year's Eve. One was slow and pretty, the other three more like Knock Me Down (eg less funk, more rock) Hillel died of a heroin overdose. I hope this helps you all out. When I got this I was real surprised because I had always thought that Hillel and Jack were there for the entire thing. Also, there was no mention of Flea playing in FEAR which I know he did but for how long I don't know. There were great interviews with the band in the January or February 1990 issue of SPIN Magazine and if I remember correctly, in August, September or October in Thrasher Magazine. May the funk be with you, Karin Zirk
NOTE: Since the above was written, John Frusciante has left the band and Ari Marshal has replaced him. Ari went with the RHCP's on the '92 Lollapaloza tour, and has since left - as of 7/93 they do not have a guitarist. Dave Navarro joined the band in ??? & recorded One Hot Minute with them.
