James Corden Red Hot Chili Peppers Carpool Karaoke

You all may know by now that I am a fan of the late night talk show shtick (Jimmy Fallon IS my boyfriend). “History of Rap,” “Mean Tweets,” Really?” “Freestylin With The Roots” – If I hear it was done, I am on my DVR or Youtube the next morning (my bedtime is 9pm). Recently, and maybe I am late to the party, I chanced upon a lovely bit on The Late Late Show with James Corden, that I could swear he got from me (sans celebrity guests)… Carpool Karaoke. The discovery was made when James Corden had the lovely Gwen Stefani riding shotgun, and they then picked up George Clooney and Julia Roberts (cue brain explosion).

Well last night Corden delighted us by showing his experience driving around and singing around with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Check out the video below.

Lookalikes Will Ferrell and Chad Smith Have A Drum Battle! (Video)

Will Ferrell and Chad Smith drum battle on The Tonight Show featuring Jimmy Fallon

For the longest time, people have been saying that comedic actor Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and Chad Smith, the drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, look like one another. These two make every “celebrity lookalike” list ever made. But while those lists oftentimes really stretch in their celebrity comparisons, the Will Ferrell/Chad Smith pair is spot on – these dudes really look like twins.

So, last night, the two men made an appearance together on The Tonight Show featuring Jimmy Fallon where they had a drum battle!!!

Watch the video here below of the drum-off, as well as the video of Fallon interviewing the two men – and as you can imagine, it was very hard for Fallon to not fall over laughing.

$5.99 MP3 Album Deal: Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Mother’s Milk’
space

Mother's Milk

Mother’s Milk, the record which propelled the funky punky ensemble Red Hot Chili Peppers into the mainstream, yet stayed true to its roots, is now available in MP3 format from Amazon right now for only $5.99. If you’d like a physical copy of Mother’s Milk, the CD is currently is $10.73 and is an “AutoRip” selection, which means if you purchase the CD, you’ll ALSO get the MP3 download for FREE.

This album is now, almost 25 years after its original release in 1989, a dynamic sonic belt notch in the band’s oeuvre and is the first to sport the now-classic lineup of leadman Anthony Kiedis, bassman Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and the ex-guitarist John Frusciante. From the opening notes of “Good Time Boys,” the group still has that sort of looseness which was funkified no doubt, but had a deer in the headlights lack of musical discipline that permeated on their earlier albums (albums with original guitarist Hillel Slovak, who had recently passed away around the original release of Mother’s Milk and thusly the record is pretty much dedicated to him body and soul). That said, Mother’s Milk still sports a much better arranged tightness from the band that only adds pounds of muscle to the tunes, which range from quasi hip hop in the ode to the famous NBA great “Magic Johnson,” the horns-a-plenty “Subway to Venus,” the genitals in the cookie jar sex up of “Sexy Mexican Maid,” and the wonderful “Johnny, Kick A Hole in the Sky.” If that ain’t enough, they even do a nicely browned on both sides version of Hendrix’s “Fire” as well as a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground,” which brought upon their first taste of mainstream popularity (in part thanks to the song’s video), along with the album’s other single, “Knock Me Down.” The band’s last record before people like Rick Rubin and the folks at Warner Brothers Records put the band into the superstar stratosphere, Mother’s Milk is almost like the demo or the pilot, of what was to come.

Listen Now: ‘In Love Dying,’ A New Song From Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘I’m With You’ Outtakes

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Funkmeisters Red Hot Chili Peppers have just made available a brand new track, via their official website, entitled “In Love Dying,” which is another hot release in their 18-song series of outtakes from their 2011 release I’m With You.

Check out the song here below.

The song is an almost 9-minute slice of hypnotic groove-laden ambience, driven by one of the best basslines to come from the mind and soul of their bass player, the incomparable Flea, back beated by the great tight-as-a-drum four on the floor attack from Chad Smith, the special, sprawling, relentless, endless melodic passes by guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, and of course, the almost reggae-ish, shamanic vocals by Anthony Kiedis.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Yesterday I wrote that though the Red Hot Chili Peppers were just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, to a early fan like me, they will always be four guys with socks on their dicks.

Now, the band has announced that in honor of their recent induction, they will be releasing a digital-only 6-song EP of cover tunes, called We Salute You. The EP, which will be available online starting May 1, 2012, has songs from previous Hall Of Fame inductees which the band was musically influenced by: The Ramones, Iggy & The Stooges, Neil Young, David Bowie, The Beach Boys, and Dion and the Belmonts. Three of the tunes are live versions, while five of the six tracks have never been available digitally.

Below is the full track listing, along with details on each track.

Music Review: Red Hot Chili Peppers – I’m With You

Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm With YouRed Hot Chili Peppers
I’m With You
Warner Bros.
Produced by Rick Rubin
U.S.: CD | MP3
UK: CD | MP3
Release date: August 29, 2011

A lot has happened to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the last 5 years. Since the release of their last album, 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, drummer Chad Smith joined Chickenfoot, bassist Flea went to school, singer Anthony Kiedis grew a moustache, and guitarist John Frusciante left due to ‘musical differences’ (why won’t bands just tell the truth and put out a statement that reads – to paraphrase Friends – ‘it’s just…we hate that guy’?). Now with Josh Klinghoffer on guitar duty, the Chili’s have released album number 10, I’m With You.

As I opened the case I kept repeating to myself, “don’t let me down, don’t let me down…”

Someone heard me. Loud and clear.

Stadium Arcadium had, apart from a small selection of songs including “Dani California” and “Hump de Bump,” had very little to revisit. At 28 tracks long, it was too much and a little self-indulgent. I’m With You includes half its predecessor’s number of tracks and twice the quality.
