Shame you weren't, if you cut out all the crap their early singles up to (and peaking with) Under the Bridge were all great, OTT funk-rock fun.
Then, like most bands formed in the 80s, they just went boring and "tasteful."
I think most people had a secret soft spot for them till the overblown vanity project that was Stadium Arcadium.
remember downloading that off soulseek for a girl i liked at college. listened to it on a trip to skegness. never again.
i was alone
this bird had flown
so I lit a fire
isn't he good
