We did a huge outdoor show in Finland on the same bill as the Ramones. It was a great show, one big massive orgy of eighty thousand drunken half-naked Finnish people. We rocked this enormous audience, but they weren’t there to see us, they were there to see the Ramones. After our show, we all assembled to watch the Ramones, who weren’t the most engaging fellows if they didn’t know you. They kept to themselves in the backstage area. Before they went on, they went through their entire set in the dressing room with unamplified instruments. When they went out, we huddled at the side of the stage, and someone came up with the idea of taking off our clothes and running onstage and doing a little dance in homage to the Ramones. Hillel was dead set against it, but Flea and Jack and I stripped down and skanked naked across the stage during “Blitzkrieg Bop.” Later that night, I ran into Johnny Ramone and their manager in the lobby of the hotel. Johnny bitched me out: ‘Who the fuck do you think you are to get on our stage during our show without your fucking clothes on? That was not cool.’ ‘I’m sorry. We did it because we love you. We didn’t mean to interfere which your aesthetic,’ I apologized. Johnny stormed away, but Joey Ramone, who’d been lingering in the shadows, came up and whispered to me, ‘Personally, I thought it was kind of cool,’ and then walked away.

Hillel Slovak, original guitar player for the Peppers, died of a heroin overdose in his Los Angeles apartment in June, 1988, after a headlong dive into addiction which had been deepening for years. His wacky, perverse sense of humor and his natural hunger for funk and freedom were the spark which became the Peppers’ signature hyperkenesis. Flea, Tree, Anthony, Jack Irons and Hillel grew up together in Hollywood from age 16. Hillel taught Flea – an accomplished trumpet player whose father was a jazz musician – the rudiments of the bass and convinced him to join his high schol rock band, Anthem. Anthony Kiedis would start Anthem shows off with a crowd pumping rap. Without Hillel, the Chilis would not have been. (SPIN, February 1990)

Happy 52nd birthday, Hillel. You will always be missed!

tem uma parte do livro do anthony que ele fala do brasil, não tem?

Tem sim, ele fala sobre a recepção que eles tiveram aqui em 1993 quando eles participaram do Hollywood Rock Festival. Essa é uma parte (em inglês por que eu não tenho em português):

"Even though Nina Hagen had told me that after the rest of the world had forgotten her, she could go to Brazil and get a welcome like she was one of the Beatles, I still couldn’t believe the fervor of the Brazilian fans. We needed members of the armed services to help us leave the hotel. The fans had an exuberance that bordered on being dangerous."
