    An unreleased song from when Dave Navarro was with the band has surfaced. I enjoy it

    Yep, totally. Really, the only Peppers I consistenly liked were Slovak years. They have some good stuff here and there, but the funky stuff (Uplift mofo party plan, and Freaky Styley) are good shit.

    These Navarro years were bizarre (I think the only album they reelased was "One Hot Minute." It created a completely different vibe for the band. As much as I LOVE Janes Addiction, I dont know how good of a fit he was for the RHCP.

    I actually liked that era but most of their hardcore fans don't. I saw them on the One Hot Minute tour and they were great. It was at the Boston Garden and Flea is a lakers faggot so he pulled down his pants and showed his bum.

    Yea. really.

    It used to bother me, until I read Kiedis' autobiography (ironically, after I stopped listening to the band), and realized that the dude is the personification of Los Angeles.

    Its an interesting time, for sure. The band kind of explored a more darker tone. Not that they didnt touch upon heavy stuff before, but this one just seemed....I dont know... bleak?

    I remember Kiedis had a relapse around this time....perhaps that had something to do with it, along with Navarros sound.

    rhcp was a terrible show for me though. Kiedis can't hear himself
