Who are this band? Sometimes they sound like rock, other times their songs sound like rap and then they got the slow songs too like Stadium Arcadium. They come from Southern California and have sold more than 60 Million records. The band began in 1983. Two band members Kiedis and Flea know each other since 1983 in high school. In Los Angeles.
The 1991 album Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic was their introduction to the world and their distinctive sound. It sold more than 15 Million copies and included the Under The Bridge song. During the late 90’s and early 2000’s the band dominated the charts and airwaves with albums including Californication, By The Way and the 2 CD Stadium Arcadium which won 5 Grammy awards.
The 2 year break changed things in that guitarist John Forchante who helped write some of the Pepper’s biggest hits decided to leave the band. So, Josh was invited to the band and recorded the latest album I’m With You that shot to the top of the charts when it was released this summer. In September they were nominated to be in the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. Not bad for a bunch of old rockers.
