Q Magazine Issue 301 – August 2011
CHILI PEPPERS MAKE AN ‘HOFFER
New guitarist, new start for rock vets.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have told Q Magazine that new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer has revitalised the band. “It’s been like starting over again,” says RHCP frontman Anthony Kiedis (pictured). Josh Klinghoffer was recruited 18 months ago to replace John Fruscianie and makes his recorded debut on new album, I’m With You. Produced by Rick Rubin and with cover art from Damien Hirst, I’m With You mixes their trademark funk sound with classic rock inflections. “It was a big thing for us to decide to continue without John,” acknowledges bassist Flea. “But we came back really enthusiastic and wrote a shit-load of stuff. I’m excited about the whole deal.”

I’m With You is out August 29th in the UK and is available under wider release on August 30th. Click here to Pre-order your copy on Amazon.

If you could describe Los Angeles in five words, whot would they be?
Land of a thousand faces.

What is your favorite LA music venue where you’ve played?
Historically, my band has taken the attitude of “we’ll play anywhere, anytime.” Venues, nonvenues, even a laundry mat will do. Today, I’ll say that the Troubadour ranks as my favorite.

What is, in your opinion, the most promising up-and-coming LA band?
There’s a new band born every day in Los Angeles. The most fun band I know to be next to right now is Crazy Band. The best songwriter I know whom no one has ever heard of is Elijah Forrest. The most promising— let’s say Warpaint.

How long have you called Los Angeles home?
I went to a West Los Angeles nursery school in the 1960s, moved back to Michigan for a spell and then started living in Los Angeles by my own choice in 1973. I was 11 years old.

Where do you go in LA for creative inspiration?
Creative inspiration is a funny thing. Sometimes it can be found anywhere; sometimes it just can’t be found. Lately, riding my motorcycle back and forth between Hollywood and Malibu has been working for me. When I was just starting to write music and lyrics for The Red Hot Chili Peppers, I used to go to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Santa Monica Boulevard. Other times the parking lot of a supermarket will get the creative inspirado job done.

It’s your first time in LA, what do you do?
Go to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl and then walk around all night. Next, seek our exquisite selection of nature. How do you stay grounded in LA? I think it’s hard almost anywhere. So easy to float away with the clouds or find yourself caving in the subterranean spaces. Be of service every dav, whether it’s convenient or not. Choose love or fear every time the choice arises. Climb the Hollywood Hill alone or with your friend.
