PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve always been more of a casual fan of the RHCP when it all came down to it, but I really do enjoy the early works that my buddy Joe turned me onto many years ago. Historically speaking I have not caught the band in concert and that means no photography or live concert reports on the website. That’s a status that I would like to end with this next go round because there is nothing better than Madison Square Garden for a rocking show with an energetic band. What about you readers? Will you be catching them in concert? Let me know in the comments section.
