My Friends
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


My friends are so depressed
I feel the question
Of your loneliness
Confide, 'cause I'll be on your side
You know I will, you know I will

Ex girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate
On the prison phone
They want, to give her seven years
For being sad

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed
And standing on
The brink of emptiness
No words, I know of to express
This emptiness

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release is peace
I heard a little girl
And what she said
Was something beautiful
To give, your love
No matter what
Yeah, what she said

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so depressed
I fear the question of your loneliness
Confide, 'cause I'll be on your side
You know I will
Y'know I will

Ex-girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate on the prison phone
They want to give her seven years
For being sad

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely, too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed
They're standing on the brink of emptiness
No words I know of to express
This emptiness

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely, too
When you don't know yourself

Imagine me
Taught by tragedy
Release is peace

I heard a little girl
And what she said was something beautiful
To give your love no matter what
Is what she said

I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely, too
When you don't know yourself

Did you know that three of the guys in RHCP have been arrested or convicted of sex crimes, and Anthony Keidis is a child rapist according to his autobiography but was never charged? 

 UPI ARCHIVES APRIL 3, 1990

Singer Anthony Kiedis convicted of sexual battery, indecent exposure



FAIRFAX, Va. -- The lead singer of the rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers was convicted Tuesday of sexual battery and indecent exposure after a concert in suburban Washington, D.C.

Anthony Kiedis, 27, of Los Angeles, was accused of touching a woman's face with his penis after a concert at George Mason University in Fairfax County on April 21, 1989.

The woman, a student at GMU who served on the university's program board, said the incident occurred outside the band's dressing room after the concert.

Circuit Court jurors recommended that Kiedis be fined $1,000 on each charge. He could have received up to 60 days in jail.

Judge Michael McWeeny set sentencing for Friday. Under Virginia law, McWeeny can impose the jury's recommendation or reduce it, but he cannot increase it.

The Circuit Court trial was an appeal of a ruling by a lower court judge, who found Kiedis guilty of both charges and sentenced him to 60 days in jail.

Kiedis denied ever touching the woman but others said they saw the incident and a band member admitted he made an encouraging statement.

Fans of the rock band, whose music is described as 'white funk,' packed the courtroom during the two days of testimony.

The band's latest album, 'Mother's Milk,' includes the hit songs 'Knock Me Down,' and a remake of the Stevie Wonder tune 'Higher Ground.'

2 IN BAND ARRESTED AFTER ATTACKING FAN



March 17, 1990


Shirish Date Of The Sentinel Staff

THE ORLANDO SENTINEL




True to their name, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were hot - so hot that they trashed their stage, then jumped into the crowd to manhandle a bikini-clad woman during an MTV taping on the beach.

Police weren't amused.

Neither was MTV, which threw the band off the set. And neither was the 20-year-old Virginia woman, who filed charges against two band members.

Defenders of the Red Hot Chili Peppers say Wednesday afternoon's episode at an MTV taping was just part of its image, which sometimes includes taking the stage wearing nothing more than strategically placed socks or diapers.



Maybe. But early Friday morning, the Volusia County Beach Rangers decided that arresting bass guitarist Flea and drummer Chad Smith and charging them with lascivious behavior, battery and disorderly conduct were part of the rangers' image.

"I'm not going to put up with it," said Ranger Chief Jon Kirvan, hours after arresting half the band's members about 1 a.m. Friday after a concert at the Marriott Hotel. "That could be your daughter."

Wednesday's melee took place during MTV's taping for its Club MTV dance program. The band was lip-syncing the song "Knock Me Down" when Flea - whose real name is Michael Balzary - started banging his bass guitar against Chad Smith's drum kit, according to police, who seemed to have a tough time making sense of the punk band's show.

"At the end of a set, the band members started jumping around on stage, pushing microphones to the stage floor, swinging instruments around, knocking over the drums and making a comment about the police that was not fully heard by this writer," wrote Daytona police Sgt. Robert Grim.

"One of the band members with a shaved-type head with a multicolored bush of hair centered on top of his head picked up a white female victim, placing her over his shoulders," Grim wrote.

Smith joined Flea, and pulled the woman's bathing suit bottom partially off and started slapping her buttocks, according to Beach Ranger Guy Grasso's report.

At that point, the woman fell to the sand, only to have Flea kneel atop her, start grabbing at her, and demand that she perform oral sex on him, Grasso's report said.

MTV security pulled Flea off and escorted him and Smith off property of the Texan Motel, MTV's base during spring break.



Kirvan said his officers talked to the woman Thursday and got arrest warrants Thursday night from Circuit Judge Robert Miller.

"Last night after their performance - if you want to call it that - we served the warrants and arrested them," Kirvan said. "If somebody assaults somebody, we're going to do something."

Flea, 26, was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and solicitation to commit an unnatural and lascivious act and released on $2,000 bail. Smith, 28, was charged with battery and released on $1,000 bail. All the charges are misdemeanors.

Neither Flea nor Smith could be reached for comment Friday.

The woman declined comment.



This band had charges in 3 states in 1996 for sex crimes against women employed to work at their concerts ( It was on MTV America News)==

I don’t understand why this album got so much hate?this is Great

Finn Tallahassee HTF

If this album was released much later in their career it probably wouldn’t that big of a deal, but the fact that this came after their masterpiece breakthrough album, it’s definitely a huge disappointment. I like My Friends and Aeroplane, but the rest are either mediocre or just terrible.

And 'Walkabout'?

Indeed.
