Red Hot Chili Peppers split, for nowMay 20th, 2008 - 3:04 pm ICT by admin
London, May 20 (IANS) The rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers has temporarily split, according to lead singer Anthony Kiedis. Kiedis said the group disbanded after their tour last year, reports contactmusic.com.
Speaking to a magazine, Kiedis said: “We didn’t really stop until the tour ended last year. We were all emotionally and mentally zapped at the end of that run. Cooler heads prevailed and the discussion at the end of our last tour was, ‘Let’s not do anything Red Hot Chili Peppers related for a minimum of one year, and just live and breathe and eat and learn new things.’
“I was about to have a brand new son. Flea wants to learn new stuff. John (Frusciante) has been firing away on his own, making different solo projects. And Chad (Smith) joined a jazz band and went to Japan. I’m just home, hanging out with this really cool little kid, learning how to surf.”
