συνεντευξη στο Q magazine για το νεο δισκο την φυγη frusciante και για την ταινια του justin bieber!!
He recently sat through Justin’s 3D release Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which follows the young Canadian’s rise to the top. Anthony was deeply affected by what he saw, bursting into tears on two occasions.
“I’m a crier. I could cry every day, in a good way, if I just sit and think about my boy. But I sat on an aeroplane recently, coming from Hawaii to Los Angeles, with [record producer] Rick Rubin just across the aisle, watching the Justin Bieber movie, Never Say Never.
I cried twice during that film and I want the world to know that!” he laughed to Q magazine.
“They were doing this very cheesy giveaway of concert tickets to 16-year-old girls. The cheesiness didn’t matter – it was the reaction of the kids. When you saw those little girls crying deliriously, I lost it.”
Anthony has been open about his addictions, detailing his use of heroin and cocaine in his memoir Scar Tissue. He had an unconventional upbringing, with his father John introducing him to drugs and arranging for him to lose his virginity when he was 12.
The 48-year-old doesn’t blame anyone else for his problems though, and thinks his life would have been the same no matter how he was raised.
“That was a little time bomb inside of me that was always waiting to go off,” he mused. “Environment has an influence, but I think that would have happened regardless of my upbringing. There was some demon in there waiting to have its time.
“I never felt like dying was a good idea. I’ve just had a kid, so I’m looking for a long haul at this point.”
Flea: You’d really have to ask him: probably a billion different little reasons. John is a very intelligent man and he’s doing what he wants to do. What more could you want for anyone?
Q:Did you have any sense that it was coming?
F: I’m open for anything to happen at any time.
Anthony Kiedis: It did not surprise me in the slightest. When the tour ended i knew that change was coming – and as the months went on, and i heard… things about John, then i knew it was a matter of time. But i never once felt like it was over for the band, just that John was going to bow out gracefully, which he completely did. It was for the good of everybody and a blessing for us all.
Q:So you never considered not continuing as the Red Hot Chili Peppers – given you’d now been through seven guitarists?
AK: Gosh. Do you know, i have not counted guitarists.. But no, speaking for myself, i did not. I think it would have been kind of quitting to do that, because i always think the best is yet to come.
F: I’d thought that if John did go that i would definitely not want to continue the band without him, But after he left, something kind of shifted in me and i found myself a really profound love fo the Chili Peppers and particually Anthony. You know, we’ve been friends since we were 15. We were inseparable. And even though are relationship has been really antagonistic… We’re very different types of people: we offend each other and we can both be a couple of self-righteous twat cunt-faces. But i really love the guy and he’s my brother.
Q:There was a precedent of One Hot Minute to consider, though. Not good, was it?
F: There might have been a little element of fear creeping in a while. But the thing is, Josh puts his heart into doing it and i knew if he did that then wee could’nt go wrong. God bless Dave Navarro, and he’s great, but his heart wasn’t with us. The whole process of getting that record done was like pulling fucking teeth in every way.
AK: It was weird period for sure. Musically it was odd because personally it was odd. I had kind of gone off the deep end and Flea was having his own personal struggles. God knows what Chad was doing, but it was probably in a darkened closet somewhere. And then, Dave Navarro is rather unusual and colourful character. All things considered, the fact we wrote songs and made a record was an accomplishment.
Q:Josh looks irriatingly young…
F: Oh, he’s going to get all the pussy.
Q:… But going on first impressions of the album, he appears to have brought some zip to the band…
AK: It’s kind of like starting over again without having to do 25 years of legwork.
F: The trickiest part of gettting together with Josh for me was also the best, which is that he’s completely different to John. There were things that i had come to expect John to do: he’s such a phenomenal musician that i was used to playing something and – bam! – John would hit it. He and Chad and I would lock in, and it was undeniably good. Josh is way different. He’d be floating around the outside with this ethereal, texture thing, It was like, ‘Whoa! When’s he gonna do that thing we know?’ And he didn’t. I had to consciously say to myself, ‘Dude, relax’…
