    Give It Away! Red Hot Chili Peppers Concert Review

    I’m late writing this, but I saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers for the first time last week in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum Center.
    Their original drummer, Jack Irons, opened the show (RHCP bassist Flea introduced him) playing drums to a lot of different kinds of music with no band (he had a singer for one song).
    Another band, Irontom, played after him.
    Jack’s son Zach plays guitar.
    Then, the Chili Peppers came on and jammed out like only they can, playing many songs from throughout their career.
    I wish I would have seen them many years ago, but better late than never.
    They’re still very good and have a lot of energy.
    Their drummer, Chad Smith, was worth the price of admission alone.
    He is a beast on the drums.
    Guitarist Josh Klinghoffer is very good.
    Bassist Flea is amazing.
    And Anthony Kiedis is the perfect singer/rapper for this band.
    Another good show.
    Many more to come.
