Top 15 Red Hot Chili Peppers B-Sides


The-GetawayIt’s been over a month since I’ve written a blog to you guys. In fact, the last time I did write to you was Mother’s Day, and today it’s Father’s Day. This Friday past, the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their 11th studio album: The Getaway. It followed up their album I’m With You which was the first album with new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer after my favourite musician of all time, John Frusciante left the band. I don’t think anyone can argue that the band is better without Frusciante, but that’s not to suggest they’ve lost all their talent and creativity either. I thought since I did a Top 15 Radiohead songs when their new album came out I would do the same for my other favourite band! But to make it a little more interesting, I’ll only do a countdown for songs which didn’t appear on an album. RHCP has one of the best b-side catalogues of modern bands and hopefully I can shed some light on it if you haven’t checked these tunes out already.
