Red Hot Chili Peppers’ vocalist Anthony Kiedis was born on this day, November 1st in 1962! When I think of the RHCPs – which, trust me, is not often – I remember that one really great album they put out back in 1991, Blood Sugar Sex Magik (which is all about boning and taking drugs, so how could it not be awesome?), and how, when I saw them live on tour in support of that album, the support bands were… Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Ah, memories. Happy Birthday, Anthony!
Matt Cameron, drummer for Soundgarden and Pearl Jam was born on this day, November 28th, in 1962! I interviewed Matt a few times for drumming interviews and also for one of his solo projects, Wellwater Conspiracy, in which he sings lead vocals from behind the kit. He’s a hilarious interview. Sadly, none of these interviews are online. Happy Birthday, Matt!
