Costa Rica Show Has Been Cancelled
With plenty of bands canceling tours across the world over coronavirus fears, it appears GUNS N‘ ROSES have cancelled their gig in Costa Rica that was scheduled for March 18th. According to a local newspaper the government has cancelled major concerts after a few cases of the coronavirus popped up. Don’t be surprised if we see more cancellations over the coronavirus fears.
JOSH KLINGHOFFER Reveals How He Joined The Band
“Gnarls Barkley, maybe through a label, they start opening for the Chili Peppers in the Stadium Arcadium period. This is great for me because I’m friends with them, so I’m in there. How did that happen? There was a cancelation due to the snow storm, so there was a makeup show on one of the legs, and Gnarls decided at the last minute not to go down to Mexico.
But because I’m friends with the Chili Peppers, I’m like, ‘You guys are crazy, Mexico City is the greatest place to play. Expletive you guys, I’m going to go with them.’ So I go, and I hadn’t seen John in awhile, because I had been on tour, so we hung out, it was fun.”
SuperHeroSong posted on the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS subreddit “In the podcast Josh states that he dropped out of High School at age 15 around 1995 and practically just stayed in his room playing guitar all the time. He started playing with Bob Forrest when he was 17 in 1997 and the Bicycle Thief record was released in 1999. The guitar playing in that record is very sophisticated, it amazes me how talented Josh became at such a young age. It’s crazy how he and Bob met at just the right time and how that eventually led to Josh joining RHCP. A lot of similarities between John and Josh.”
I think it’s crazy they let Josh go and didn’t keep him. What are your guys thoughts.
