Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers Cover Jimi Hendrix at L.A. Charity Show
The annual RHCP-hosted concert benefits the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, and this year, its lineup boasted headliner John Legend and Kamasi Washington. For their part, the Chili Peppers played four catalog classics -- “By the Way,” “Sir Psycho Sexy,” “Californication” and “Around the World” -- plus the Hendrix cover. Check out fan-shot clips from the show below:
“The torture about doing this [show] is that we’ve been writing new music for the last year, and we’ve written some songs that I feel are as good as any songs we’ve ever written,” he said. “We’re just dying to play the new songs -- but we can’t, because every single human has a recording device on them at all times.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers are working on their latest album with Danger Mouse behind the boards. When it arrives, it follows 2011’s I’m With You.
