Have the Chili Peppers 'disbanded?'


Noted sock-codpiece-wearer Anthony Kiedis dropped an alarming bit of news on Red Hot Chili Peppers fans during an interview with Rolling Stone: “We’ve disbanded for the moment.” Kiedis says the band is still coming off the “grueling” process of recording Stadium Arcadium and its ensuing tour. “We were all emotionally and mentally zapped at the end of that run,” he said. “Cooler heads prevailed and the discussion at the end of our last tour was, “Let’s not do anything Red Hot Chili Peppers-related for a minimum of one year, and just live and breathe and eat and learn new things.’” Kiedis -- shown above during what we can only assume must have been a Steve Nash lookalike contest -- says he is getting “just a little bit of a tingle” about making new music, so Chili Peppers fans can probably relax for the moment.

As a postscript, the Juice* would like to point out that we came across this story by reading Whitney Matheson’s indispensible Pop Candy blog, which is a good thing, because otherwise we never would have touched the actual current issue of Rolling Stone, considering it’s got the f---ing Eagles on the cover.


Seriously, Jann Wenner? SERIOUSLY??!??
