And here we are again with the latest installment of awesome lineups! This morning Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival released it’s lineup for this years festival which will take place June 8-11 in Manchester, Tennessee. If any of the recently announced festival lineups are any indication of how the year will go, I’m not mad about it. Red Hot CHili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, U2, and the Weeknd are set to headline.
I’m personally most excited about Major Lazer after seeing them last year. Also set to play the fest are Glass Animals♥, Flume (remember what I said about him taking over the festival scene this year?), The XX, Lorde, Louis the Child, Marshmello, Big Gigantic, Tegan & Sara, Milky Chance, Bad Suns, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, COIN, Leon, Cold War Kids, Crystal Castles, Gallant, Portugal The Man, and more!
It seems as though we have been hearing about this drum off between Red Hot Chili Pepper’s drummer Chad Smith and his doppelganger, comedic actor Will Ferrel for over a year now. Last night on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, it finally happened and it was hilarious! Take a look for yourself…
I love to read. Aside from YA Dystopian, Rock and Roll Autobiographies are my favorite genre to read. My favorite book I have ever read from ANY genre is “Scar Tissue” by Anthony Keidis which chronicles the insanity of the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s front man. Even if you don’t like the Red Hot Chili Peppers you will love this book! Unless sex drugs and roll bother you…if that’s the case you may not want to pick it up. Anyways the point I am getting to is Scar Tissue was filled with the most crazy stories, adventures and so much trouble that Anthony Keidis got into along with his band mates. One of which Michael Balzary aka FLEA, has recently decided to write his very own memoir which will be released via Grand Central Publishing! This means that we will get a chance to relive these adventures from a different perspective and also discover new ones. If you’ve read Scar Tissue before then you know there is a fair share of drug abuse that seemed to follow these guys around, this is something Flea will be writing about along with his experiences in philanthropy and acting as well. Scar Tissue really helped me to fall in love with RHCP’s music so much more, knowing where the music came from and what inspried it. I think this memoir will certainly fuel that flame of RHCP love I’ve got burning even more and hopefully it’ll do the same for you! Here is an excerpt from the press release regarding Flea’s memoir that he will be writing all by himself (go Flea!)… Continue reading
