Meanwhile,work on the new Peppers album has already started- expected to be launched this winter.

The Peppers have already started to work on their new album, after having completed the very last leg of their street sweeping Californication World Tour in Argentine.
John Frusciante has layed out several "walls of sound, some of them containing dub elements"(John)

Chad told SonicNet that the new album is expected to be released around Christmas 2001! And if that wasn't good news enough, the Peppers have promised to hit the road again once the new album has been launched- According to Chad Smith,the Peppers are definitely planning on touring the UK as well as the Rep. of Ireland (first gig after 5 years!).
According to Flea, the band are considering to use some of the new riffs, grooves and sampling techniques, that they have been experimenting with while on tour.
The RHCP bassist feels
very optimistic about the bands current creative drive and chemistry - A phenomeneon which will certainly be reflected in this forthcoming LP of a band already infamous for conveying vibrant energy and positive vibes.

Like to know more about this mysterious new project + John and Flea's solo albums?

27.12.00- update:New single Road Trippin'- Release date, tracklist -and the streaming video!

1. Road Trippin' (Album Version)
2. Californication (Live)
3. Blood Sugar Sex Magik (Live)
4. Under The Bridge (Live)

The video for "Road Trippin" is shown on MTV Stations all over Europe now!
"The Jonathon Dayton and Valerie Faris production set the band in a house on the beach: Using a warm sepia/yellow/orange colour scheme, soft lens and superimpositions throughout, the video depicts John and Flea playing guitar while Anthony is singing. Scenes of the interior of the house bathed in a warm late afternoon glow from panorama windows overlooking a beach, intermingle with shots of Anthony running along a beach playing with a young dog, or the artists' torsos framed by a blazing fireplace.The overall feel is tranquil, profoundly content and glowing. Rarely have I seen a video whose imagery corresponds this well with the song!"
(Review by Fuxia©)
The single Road Trippin' hit continental Europe on December 4th 2000.
This latest release from the award winning album Californication is available internationally only.

Dearest Rockinfreakapotami and new visitors alike..

Should you have any questions,I will answer them gladly to the best of my ability!
(Please note though: I do not snoop under the bedsheets of RHCP, nor hang around the bushes in their gardens armed with an infrared camera.. Please understand that therefore I cannot answer questions concerning their private lives, other than authorized info - nor would I want to)
And most of all any comments, suggestions, criticism - and contributions(!) - are more than welcome!  Love, The webmistress xxx

"Troublekids in Funk Heaven"
traight from the heartland of sexual hypocrisy, in the land which recently condemned it's president for having a penis, these guys are singing - oozing sex, with the natural ease of birds n' bees.

Propably number one on the scale of most undesirable son in laws, their liveshows resemble punky Chippendales - minus the perfumed backdoors - plus brilliant brains on top of brawns.

In a day and age where any serious music lover can't get no satisfaction when turning on the radio, and where MTV is dominated by groups of model - puppets miming to studio singer's voices doing remixes of old chart successes, this band is truly food for the soul.

They dare to be original, are changing their style from album to album instead of watering down and recycling previous hits, yet always remain true to themselves through the decades.

And that is not only most unusual but almost impossible in this business!
