For me one of my all time favorite bands is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They have a unique sound and style in their music, which is probably why I like them so much. Most people I know one like them for their new music but I like them for their old and new music. They have changed their style of music from a mix of somewhat rap/funk and rock, to a slower tempo rock and alternative style. It’s nice to see a change in the type of music they’ve played started to play in this decade. To me this shows a well roundness, since they can play more than one kind of music. The individuals in the group are unique and great at what they do. Anthony Kiedis the lead singer has a great voice and a nice style. Michael Balzary known as “Flea” is my favorite bass player and one of the best around. And Chad Smith is a great drummer who just happens to look just like Will Ferrell, which I find hilarious. For me it’s more than just the music, it’s what the band has gone through as well. They have overcome drug use that has almost ended the band. The original drummer died from a heroin overdose which caused his friend the original guitarist to leave. With Kiedis a user of drugs as well as the loss of his friend, this could have caused the breakup of the band but he eventually got clean and they added some new member. To me this shows adversity in a bad situation. With their great music, ability to overcome and change they are a step above other bands.
