Back cover copy

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are the unique high-priests of funk rock: a gang of high-school misfits who began their band as a joke and exploded to mind-blowing heights of acclaim and fame. With their potent mix of funk and rap, inspired by Geoge Clinton (who also produced the band) and Jimi Hendrix, the Chili Peppers are a show-stealing, crowd pleasing, raging onstage fury, an alternative band with a massive mainstream success, an intelligent group who aren't afraid of acting stupidly.
