Rolling Stone posted an interview with Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers) yesterday and it has had the internet wondering up a storm. Your two cents?
Rolling Stone: Did you run into any other major problems during the booking?
Anthony Kiedis: For some reason, this is the summer of bands getting married. I ran into that twice. I'm very keen on M.I.A., I think she's a rocking live performer. She wanted to play, she was very into it and it seemed like a great deal and suddenly she's getting married. Same with Hot Chip. They have a real groove; they write good songs and have an interesting personality. Except for the fact that they're getting married. Undone by matrimony, but not really undone.
If you're curious about Kiedis' festival and don't really give a shit about Hot Chip/M.I.A. weddings, then check out this line-up.
