    It is all water Under The Bridge.

    red hot chilli peppers have enough really good songs, all from 20 plus years ago though, pre blood sugar sex magic was quality. turned into a relatively bland pop rock band ever since though.

    I don't know if anyone's reading this.

    I had high hopes for both bands when they first came out.

    REM foundered due to inaccessible vocals and incomprehensible lyrices; their melodies, too, started sounding alike. I saw them once, four rows from the stage and i believe I may have been spat upon by Micheal Stipe as he sang. Not a very glorious night at all.

    I liked the first HCP hit. But their followup stuff foundered on excessive weirdness.

    Let's face it: to be successful you have to be presentable in some degree.

    So true. Where would Janis Joplin have been without her beautiful face and and the care she put into looking good?

    I thought that for decades myself. Then I got wise, and realized they do some great stuff; many excellent covers.

    American Beauty and Workingman's Dead were superb albums,they showed great versatility transforming themselves from doing psychedelic jams to folk/country stuff...
