14 June 1999

For once,I have to thank MTV!Thank it for the free show it put up!They were recording a live set for MTV Italy and they were giving tickets for free,only to the first 300 people to get there...I queued up for 3 hours but I managed to get the pass!
The show was not a mere 4-song showcase,it was a sweaty 80 minutes of Red Hot Chili Peppers singing,playing,soloing,drumming and having fun!They are better than ever,now that John Frusciante is back into the band!They really amazed me!

I was an MTV guest,apparently!Cool!

Great,I managed to get a band pic!!!I love them!So I can introduce the band properly:from left,Flea at the bass,Anthony Kiedis with the mic,Chad Smith at the drums and John Frusciante at flaming guitars!
See how much Anthony is concentrating on the singing...well,it was a hard bit he was doing:"Giveitaway,giveitaway,giveitawayNOW!" :)
Look at the man on the far right:in the pics,he looks like he's holding the ampli on his shoulders,LOL!!!
A closeup on Anthony.Look at his new hairstyle,it's pretty cool,don't you think?
Here's the whole band again,but this time they conspired against me and they are all hiding their face!!!It's a pity,cause they spent most of the set smiling and having a happy face,especially Chad!
A closeup on John.This man got on a trip in the seventies and he's not out of it yet!Phased-out expression on his face,seventies clothes,and a taste (and ability) for guitar playing that was thought long lost in time!
Another good pic a bit spoiled by the big bush of curly hair that was standing before me...

For any comment,suggestion,or whatever you might want to tell me,my email is:
