Kurt Cobain’s height has been listed anywhere from 5″7 to 5″10 with most agreeing on around 5″9. Kurt had scoliosis and a spinal curvature as well as the bad posture he sang about in the song Pennyroyal Tea “I have very bad posture”…
On Decemeber 13, 1993 Nirvana rehearsed and taped their MTV Live & Loud concert performance at Pier 48 in Seattle, Washington. The concert aired on MTV for their 1993 New Year’s Eve special. The hosts were Anthony Kiedis and Flea. And that’s where these pictures of Anthony and Flea in drag with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic come from…
At the height of their fame, Red Hot Chili Peppers graced the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine’s June 25, 1992 issue. Famous for sometimes performing naked with only socks covering their private parts, it is not too shocking that Chad Smith, Flea and Anthony Kiedis are completely naked on the magazine cover.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers album “Mother’s Milk” features a black and white photograph of the band being held in the arms of a larger naked woman. A rose conceals one of her nipples while Anthony Kiedis body conceals the other.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers don’t mind getting naked for pictures, on stage and Flea usually only wears a pair of tighty whities when performing. For the cover of their “The Abbey Road E.P.”, The Peppers, like The Beatles, depicts the four bandmembers walking across a zebra crossing in single file, the twist being that they are all naked except for white tube socks covering their genitals.
Flea’s super rare vintage “Shell Pink” ’61 Fender Jazz Bass” sports a sticker of D. Boon, former lead singer of the Minutemen. Flea used this bass to record the Red Hot Chili Peppers album “Stadium Arcadium” and even toured with it for a short while. The bass is extremely valuable because it is one of very few original “Shell Pink” jazz bases ever produced by Fender.
After the release of Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic, John Frusciante began to develop a dislike for popularity of Red Hot Chili Peppers. He would become distant on stage and resented the hit song “Under The Bridge” so much that he would play long intros, play in different notes and octaves and tried to purposefully throw Anthony Kiedis off while singing.
In 1991 the Red Hot Chili Peppers wanted to record their next album in an unconventional setting, believing it would enhance their creative output. The Blood Sugar Sex Magic album art features a photograph of a strange orb or face captured during a group photograph on the property.
