Published Dec 20, 2012Red Hot Chili Peppers were already confirmed for the new series of Nigel Godrich's From the Basement show, and now the band's 27-minute set has hit the net.
The intimate performance finds the core Red Hot Chili Peppers lineup augmented by percussionist Mauro Refosco and keyboardist Chris Warren. They perform five songs from last year's I'm with You, with guitarist Josh Klinghoffer remaining seated, while singer Anthony Kiedis and pink-haired bassist Flea strip off their shirts partway through. As for drummer Chad Smith, he keeps steady time while wearing a Red Hot Chili Peppers shirt (just in case you forgot which band you were watching).
