In Response to TODAY IN ROCK N ROLL HISTORY - JUNE 1, 2010 by nyadrn
Nine multiplatinum albums are revisited in this tour of the recorded works of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the ongoing cornerstone of L.A.'s alternative rock scene for nearly a quarter of a century. Widely credited as the founders of rap-rock with such efforts as their 1983 self-titled debut album, the 1989 crossover hit Mother's Milk, and their 1991 commercial breakthrough BloodSugarSexMagik, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have remained consistently at the top of the album charts with their potent mix of hard rock and funk, selling 50 million albums and winning seven Grammy Awards along the way. The writing and production of each album is thoroughly investigated and detailed, including behind-the-scenes stories of such generation-defining hits as “Higher Ground,” “Give It Away,” “Under the Bridge,” “Californication,” and “Scar Tissue,” ultimately providing an alternative history to one of the most-loved American bands.
