This is temporary, I hope.

From Wikipedia:

Anthony Kiedis told Rolling Stone Magazine in an interview published May 20, 2008 that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are "disbanded for the moment." Following the last leg of the tour promoting Stadium Arcadium, the band members have been on a break. Kiedis attributes this to the band being worn out from their years of nonstop work since Californication. Kiedis explained that he is currently preoccupied with taking care of his new son, while Flea is experimenting with new musical ideas, Frusciante is continuing his solo career, and Chad Smith is in Japan working with a jazz band. The band plans to remain on hiatus for "a minimum of one year." However, Kiedis has stated that he is anxious to start thinking about new material.

I recently saw a poll on the MTV website asking if people will go see the Chili Peppers if they were to perform in Manila and I got the impression that they were seriously considering it... so I guess this interview confirms that they're not. haay. I watch footages of their concert at the Slane Castle over and over again and I wish to see them live one day. At least before any of them dies of drug overdose.
That's not Kiedis in the picture. It's Flea in his favorite outfit.
