Rolling Stones

Anthony Kiedis  is in the news again.  However, it is not for the most ideal reason.  Following one of the two recent Rolling Stones performances in Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center, the Red Hot Chili Peppers singer tried to meet the band.

The Rolling Stones were staying at the Four Seasons hotel following their June 21 performance.  After the show, Kiedis and his female companion were trying to gain access through the hotel entrance to meet the Rolling Stones.  Kiedis was mistaken for a fan by hotel security and when he was confronted he proceeded to shout and escalate the situation and shoved the security guard.  The Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman was then put into a chokehold.  After the altercation Kiedis had only one thing to say, " I love the Rolling Stones."  You can see the video of the altercation below.

Morning Mix Red Hot Chili Peppers Rolling Stones

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh's finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Scott Mervis of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

In case you missed it here's what he played with commentary by Scott:

The Rolling Stones, "Doom and Gloom": Having devoured Keith Richards' book and been blown away by Mick Jagger's 'SNL' appearance, I half-expected a new single from the Stones would be good. It's not. It's great. "Doom and Gloom" sounds like it could have come off of "Let it Bleed" or "Beggars Banquet" or one of those classic late '60s/early '70s albums. It has that dirty Stones guitar sound, and Mick is singing like he's discovered the fountain of youth.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse, "Walk Like a Giant": This was the centerpiece of the band's set at the Petersen Center earlier this month. The new song from "Psychedelic Pill" is one of those
distortion-heavy Crazy Horse stomps very much in the vein of "Hey Hey My My." It devolves into about 14 minutes of feedback. What we played on the air is the more reined-in single version, which is still killer.
