Chili Peppers at Continental Arena

I took a bunch of kids to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers last night at the Continental Arena. Three of The Four Fellas were there as well as Emily and a friend of hers.

It was the first time I’ve seen the Chili Peppers do a whole set live and I was impressed. Flea plays the bass like nobody I’ve ever seen. It’s like a weapon in his hands.

But John Frusciante was the real eye opener for me. He is a throwback to the guitar gods of the 70s and 80s. The recent Stadium Arcadium record has a song on it called Turn It Again (second to last song on the record, should have been the ending song) in which John Frusciante delivers the most amazing guitar solo on a studio record in years. He is something to behold.

And behold him we did (short 30 second clip).
