Kids these days don’t know anything. All they want is a selfie like and to walk around in skimpy jeans! And music? Oh, brother! Can you even call what they’re listening to music? Between the EDMs and the pop tarts, there’s no room left for people who actually make music! Like the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They’re kind of the music of the generation that’s either close to or already in their 40s. And I know that they’re considered good. The band was headlining KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast but had to cancel due to illness afflicting lead singer Anthony Kiedis.
Billboard is telling us that a little after 10pm, Anthony was taken in an ambulance from the venue. Flea, the bassist, came out on stage to make an announcement about their set being cancelled as well as saying he and the rest of the band being “devastated“. A rep for KROQ said that Anthony was suffering from severe stomach pain. KROQ also tweeted this message in response to the cancellation:

Eventually, Weezer filled the spot the Chilis were meant to be in. Other acts included Garbage, Miike Snow and Blink-182. Thinking about that line up just makes me feel old. Ugh. If things get worse, the Chilis can always call up Axl Rose. He didn’t let a little case of broken foot stop him. I’d like to know his secret because it seems like his bloated ass is invincible.
