bloodsugarsexmagik

I'm right back into a Red Hot Chili Peppers phase. I'm pigging out on Peppers. WARNING: if you aren't into this band, don't bother reading today! If you do like this band... get in here and roll in it!

Blood.




Sugar.




Sex.




Magik.


If you think about it, it all makes perfect sense.

Anthony is the Blood. You might think he's the sex- clearly-- but he's the one that makes it all happen. He's the life force in this band. Without him, it will not exist.He's the juice! Anthony drives it like a heartbeat. He's also a total nutcase in the most delightfully exciting way.He's one hell of a front man.I totally love him (despite my best efforts!)


Chad is the Sugar. Despite him being the backwards hat wearing, stubble chinned, silent drummer, he's the sweetness. He's got the jowly face with the pretty little green eyes. (Like his twin, Will Ferrell.) Chad looks like a mechanic, or a plumber. He's a daddy to three kids. He's the quietest, most camera shy of the four. But if you don't believe me that Chad is the sugar, I suggest you listen with your eyes closed and solo out the drums. Sweet! He's got chops. He lays down the sweet beats, baby. I found a photo of him wearing a John Deere hat. Really that's all I need. I'm kinda shallow that way.

Flea is the Sex. Not only is he a mind boggling player, he's the most naked guy in popular music. Type the word flea into Google Images. The first page is all creepy bugs and a wiry dude wearing nothing but sneakers and a bass guitar.
It ain't a bad sight. And his playing is hot too. I may fall for guitar players, but really, bass is the sexiest instrument.I love him just a little bit more because his shoulders are crooked. We could be twins.

John is the Magik. I love John Frusciante. His playing gets better constantly, he's looking so healthy and angelic these days, in a messed up scrawny slacker kind of way, and his brain fascinates me. I think he might not be from this planet. Here's a quote from the Wikipedia page: Frusciante claims that his music is a gift from spirits that frequently spoke to him. He has said about these spirits, "I was so happy that someone was visiting I’d make food for them. When they were gone, I’d cry." That breaks my heart, it's so beautiful!Believe, I understand weird, but this guy decided a few years back to be a drug addict and went for it with great passion. I don't get it, but I do understand the need to be creative and the struggle to find a way of being that feels right. Drugs or not, his world is different from ours. And yet... it makes a bit of sense to me. I love that quote!
I'm so glad he decided to stay on this planet. There's so much music in him and we get to share it with him.

Four talented guys, four essential elements.



And why does a nice girl like me love a bunch of bad boys like them? Hey. Even farm girls can get funky.

I am not a HUGE fan, but I do love the Keidis. Big time. I could never touch him, not even with a stick. He's very nice to look at, and even better to listen to.

Heidi the Hick said...

Ok but what about a very short stick?

And of course up to date on all shots.

And wrapped in plastic.

Then can we touch?

Damn I do love to look at him. He just keeps getting better. He's one person that I'd be paralyzed if I ever met him. Out of all my famous person crushes/obsessions, the Kiedis is the one that'd have me crying and blubbering. And wishing I was up to date on all my shots.

I love the RHCP!!!! I do. I'm not a big fan of the new album...but I love Scar Tissue. The song. The book. All of it.

The Adult in Question said...

I like Flea too. He is too odd a character not to enjoy. Have you seen what he is wearing in the Tell Me Baby video. I'm not quite sure what it is...very, very interesting.

Heidi the Hick said...

KC I miss out on all the good videos! I know lately Flea has been really into the British country gentleman look with the cap and tweed coat. It's shocking to see him with so much fabric on his body!

I remember when you were up here for a week one summer, when you were 12, I think. Californication was your favourite song and you could pick out all the lyrics that were about you.

good times...

Moon Martini said...

Love Anthony!!!
He's looking better than ever. I would touch him with a very short stick.

Tod said...

Ummm...I think you got "sex" and "magic" on the wrong pictures.

Scar Tissue is one of my alltime fave songs as well as Road Trippin and John is really HOT with a shaved head in that vid.

Heidi the Hick said...

Moon Martini- maybe a short stick and some disinfectant? yeah Anthony is pretty special. He's always been gorgeous but he sure looks good with some health on him!

Tod, you feel the same way about John as I do! I couldn't find any good pictures of him with his head shaved although I know he looked good like that. He went through a very skeletal phase. I think he has lovely eyes and great lips. I even like his crooked nose. His playing seriously knocks me out. So TRIPPY.

Timmy said...

HUGE FAN! GREAT POST SWEETIE!!!

Notsocranky Yankee said...

When I was first dating Cranky, he borrowed my "bloodsugarsexmagik" CD. He had a killer stereo in his truck and would play it VERY loud. It was great!

I had to marry him to get it back...

Heidi the Hick said...

Timmy I was hoping you'd drop by today!

Yankee, that's awesome. I think it's okay to marry a man for his CDs or to get yours back, haha!

dilling said...

LOVE them....

dilling said...

heidi...you should read A Bug's View today.... you'll like it. I promise.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

I love me som RHCP. Every album they make is better than the last. I still remember the first time I heard By The Way. I was playing pool at a friend's house. Blew me away.

Heidi the Hick said...

Dilling I KNOW you love them!!!

Bug- it's true. They're still making exciting records that count and that makes them even more appealing.

terry said...

cara winsor hehir said...

not at all on the subect of peppers. i got to thinking about something over at dilling's... did you watch a show in the early 90's with lots of cute boys on it who rode for the pony express???

Heidi the Hick said...

cara, YES I used to yank the saddle off my horse and run into the house by 9 every Tuesday! I loved that show! The Young Riders! I wanted to be on that show!

(Did you watch it too?)

Terry- I'm going to do another photo comparison coming up, maybe on Friday.

Heidi the Hick said...

I wanna know if anybody typed FLEA into google images...

cara winsor hehir said...
