John Frusciante is gone and Anthony Kiedis now dons an unsettling mustache, but the new music video from the Red Hot Chili Peppers definitely brings plenty of the old RHCP SoCal spirit back to the table. Doing their best Beatles of Venice, CA impression, Flea, Kiedis, Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer filmed a rooftop performance of their new single, “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie,” last month, complete with seagulls flying overhead and waves crashing on the horizon.
We still, admittedly, miss Frusciante quite a bit, but I have to give the guys credit for pulling together some fresh, inspired material after all these years. Check out the
Kreayshawn Marc Klasfeld-directed clip below.
