The Zephyr Song
by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Can I get your hand to write on
Just a piece of leg to bite on
What a night to fly my kite on
Do you want to flash your light on

Take a look
It's on display for you
Coming down
No, not today

Did you meet your fortune teller
Get it off with no propeller
Do it up, it's on with Stella
What a way to finally smell her

Pick it up
If not too strong for you
Take a piece
And pass it on

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

Fly on my wind
Rebel and a liberator
Find a way to be a skater
Rev it up to levitate her
Super friendly aviator

Take a look
It's on display for you
Coming down
No, not today

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We'll find a place together

(Whoa) whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - do you
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Whoa) whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - want to
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We're gonna live forever

Forever

This song was playing in the car when friends & I got in an accident many years ago. A truck slammed our car on the passenger side where I was sitting. I'll never forget that surreal feeling during the moment of impact, whirling around in the car with glass breaking, bracing myself for the worst (my door was caved in). And then the car finally stops moving, and all I remember was that this song was still playing... and it was the most eerily - beautiful reminder that I was still alive......Long live RHCP<3

MY ZEPHYR SONG

Can I get your hand to write on
Just a piece of leg to bite on
What a night to fly my kite on
Do you want to flash your light on

Take a look

Did you meet your fortune teller
Get it off with no propeller
Do it up, it's on with Stella
What a way to finally smell her

Pick it up
If not too strong for you
Take a piece
And pass it on

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

Fly on my wind
Rebel and a liberator
Find a way to be a skater
Rev it up to levitate her
Super friendly aviator

Fly away on my zephyr

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We'll find a place together

whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - do you
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Whoa) whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa - want to
(Yeah) yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fly away on my zephyr
I feel it more than ever
And in this perfect weather
We'll find a place together

In the water where I center my emotion
All the world can pass me by
Fly away on my zephyr
We're gonna live forever

Replays, Only Cost a Like.

Amelia

@Mandy Cole Yeah, I don't "strip for a living", but nice attempt at trolling, bitch 🙃

Mandy Cole

@Amelia They use sexual harassment and sex crimes to keep women out of their industry. I guess you are good with having to strip for a living.

Mandy Cole

@Amelia “The art of the Red Hot Chili Peppers is first and foremost that of our music, and we never change our music as a compromise for anybody’s desires or tastes. That we should have to enlarge ourselves on the record is really not that big a deal. It’s what’s inside that counts,” he points out pragmatically.

“These things are so arbitrary, anyway. Nobody kicked up any fuss over our T-shirts…” (The two most famous being the legendary socks-on-cocks number, and the less well known woman-masturbating shirt.)

“It’s a drawing of Madonna masturbating, and she’s dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers,” Kiedis explains with a straight face.

It’s not known if Madonna herself has actually seen it.

“I think if she saw it, she’s want one, that’s the type of girl she is. I mean, I don’t think she’s ever denied masturbating. Or denied masturbating to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, for that matter…”

WHAT ABOUT the serious side of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, though? All play and no work makes Jack a dull jerk… Does it concern Kiedis that some people might not be able to see past the silly faces in their photo’s the smutty T-shirts, the whole zany, kinky, mama-we’s-all-crazy jive? That some people might not take the Red Hot Chili Peppers seriously at all?

“But that’s like people going to see Jimi Hendrix play and coming away from the concert with nothing more to say than, ‘Wow, that guy can play with his teeth!’“ he says. “This is show business, and we are here to entertain. We like to entertain people. The visual value of it is there, but there’s a lot more to it than that. People who are truly interested or concerned will find that out eventually.”

On the other hand, of course, some people take the Red Hot Chili Peppers almost too seriously. To the point of wanting to be them. No, I’m not talking about Faith No More: just their singer, Mike Patton.

I ask Kiedis straight for his opinion on the matter: did Mike Patton rip you off hook, line, and sinker, or what?

“Yeah,” he says, no hesitation. “My drummer says he’s gonna kidnap him and shave his hair off and saw off one of his feet. Just so he’ll be forced to find a style of his own.”

Is the genuine bitterness here, or just another joke?

“It used to really bother me. I thought, what a drag if people get the idea that I’m actually ripping him off! Especially in the UK where Faith No More are much better known than us. In America, it’s a different story, people are aware of the profound influence we had on them.

“But after it stewed in my stomach for a while, I just decided to accept it. He is just a kid. Besides, without his left foot he’s going to have to change…”

IN AMERICA they just received a gold record for ‘Mother’s Milk’. It is only now that the Chilis have started to make any serious inroads into the British or European markets. This month they return to the UK for a clutch of dated.

How important is it for the band to be a success this side of the ocean they named after a record company?

“Everywhere we go in the world we try our hardest and we play our hardest every night we play. That’s basically what we have to offer Britain. The way the industry’s set up over there, the only way to get across is go over there and play. It’s nice to expose what you have to offer to the entire world.”

Does he actually like it over in Ye Olde Country?

“To be blatantly honest, England is not our favourite place to go, he admits without guilt.

“It isn’t because we’re not as well-known as we are in America: it’s the weather we don’t like; and it’s very far away, and the food’s not very good – they tend to overcook the vegetables.”

He adopts a teasing, bitter English accent: “Y’know, steak ’n’ kidney pie is not really me favourite…

“I think that sooner or later, though, it’s inevitable that we will conquer England, as well as Scotland, Ireland and the rest of the world.”

This without a hint of an exclamation mark in his voice.

“It’s very much like the long-term process of making love to somebody: you start off with the foreplay, you kiss them and you suck their neck and you titillate their sensory areas with your fingertips, with the first couple of records.

“Maybe you start giving them head with the third record, then you finally slip it in for the fourth. That’s essentially what we’ve done with our career up to this point.

“ ‘Mother’s Milk’ was incredibly well received in America. Basically, we’re still involved in the foreplay section with the rest of the world, since they didn’t really get our first two records.”

SEX… IT ALL comes back to sex with this guy. Almost as soon as we met, Kiedis told me he was on a ‘sex diet’. And he has the love-bites – one either side of the jugular – to prove it.

“I’ve got a new girlfriend. She’s 18 years old and demands rigorous sexual activity several times a day.”

For those of us who need to know, Kiedis’ sex diet consists of “no fattening foods, lots of protein, and a lot of exercise before and after you eat. Basically, you just can’t afford to have an ounce of fat because a sexual diet is for performance.

“But it’s also for aesthetics: she’s a model and she’s quite perfect in her physical structure.”

So is this lurve, Anthony?

Love is a word taken much too seriously sometimes,” he says enigmatically. “People are afraid to say they love somebody, but the fact if I do love her. I’m not gonna marry her and I’m not gonna dedicate my whole life to her, because I need to devote time to myself and to my music.

“But she understands. I just broke up with the girl that I lived with for two years. To get out of the frying pan and to go straight into the fire would be stupid right now. We’ve decided we’re gonna be blatantly honest about our feelings, at risk of hurting each other.

“But I do love her and she loves me. She’s the biggest sexual genius I’ve encountered in the last 10 years…”

HE STRIKES a post-coital pose and lights a cigarette. Excluding sex, smoking is his one remaining vice. “My guitar player (John Frusciante) is such an avid smoker, and he really loves the quality it gives my voice, the raspiness.

“But he’s the kind of guy who was heartbroken to find out that John Waters, his favourite film-maker, had quit smoking at the age of 44.”

Once upon a time, of course, smoking a cigarette was the least of Kiedis’ problems. Heroin abuse, alcoholism, both had threatened to take him over for much of the band’s seven-year career. Then his guitarist, friend and co-conspirator in the twilight world of drug addiction, Hillel Slovak, died.

“Like me, Hillel had the disease of drug addiction,” Kiedis says, not flinching. “He didn’t die of an overdose; he died from having a disease.

“No one wanted to accept that this young man with so much to offer was just gone, you know, wiped out in a second.

“But in a strange way, we found strength from that. It forced me to make a choice. I could either join Hillel or I could try and finish my life.

“I’ve been completely off all alcohol and drugs for 21 months now. I mean, completely. I don’t drink or use any more.

“But I don’t do it by myself. Hillel tried to do it by himself and he died. I do it with the help of other addicts that have cleaned up. That’s the only way I know how to deal with it.”

A NEW Red Hot Chili Peppers single, ‘Taste The Pain’, the third to be taken from the excellent ‘Mother’s Milk’ collection, is released by EMI to tie in with the UK shows.

A new video, directed by Alex Winter (the weedy blond guy in ‘Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure’), has already been shot, and features, says Kiedis with obvious satisfaction, “some very twisted images of pain and brutal reality. It’s impossible to describe. There’s a sense of surrealism to it all as well.”

When he’s not devouring his new girlfriend, Kiedis says he likes to spend his spare time reading (Bukowski is a big favourite, as is Capote, Hesse, Bach); listening to music (“Sex Packets’ by the Digital Underground is a current favourite, he tells me).

But mostly, he has sex, he insists. Well, it’s a hobby, I suppose…

While still discussing his sex diet and all the exercise involved, I enquire how often Kiedis lifts weights?

No, no weights,” he says.

I look surprised. Where did you get those big arms from then, I asked him?

“Sex,” he replied.

No way! What does he do, carry them around over his head before he gets them into bed?

At last, he allows himself a small chuckle, amused by my puffing and blowing, my envy and disbelief.

“The only exercise I ever get, unless I force myself to do push-ups, is sex and onstage. Stage is the cardio-vascular scenario, you know; an hour-and-a-half running around every night. That’s a perfect exercise.

“And sex. You’d be surprised. I mean, if you’re holding yourself up above a girl for any length of time… you know, utilizing your pelvis or whatever. Don’t you feel pumped up after you have sex?” he asks, face a perfect mask of sincerity.

Outside, it’s stopped raining…
