RHCP LEAKS, FLEA UPSET
Date: Tues, May 2
From: "Michael Balzary"
To: members@redhotchilipeppers.com

Flea when i woke up this morning
i was was confronted with the news that our record has been leaked to
the internet
it does not come out til may 9 but now it has leaked
and not that i know alot about this kind of thing
but i guess now it is possible to down load it for free if you want
well
that's not very nice
if you down load it now off one of these file sharing sites
you will be getting a pale imitation of the record
it will be of the poor sound quality of the technique they used to
get it on there
and that will break my heart
it will break john frusciante's heart
it will break anthony kiedis's heart
and it will break the heart of chad smith
yes, we worked for a year and a half to make the epic record of our
lives
and it is sad to me for the business reasons of course
i think we are selling something really cool and we put all we had
into it, 28 songs, 2 hours of the best that we can offer
and i think it is a fair deal for everyone
and for people to just steal a poor sound quality version of it for free
because some asshole stole it and put it on the internet
is sad to me
but, equitable business reasons aside
the thing that really bums me out is
we worked so hard, and so thoughtfully, all of us, for so long
to make this record sound as warm and full from top to bottom
as was possible
we spent day and night for a year making sure every little sound was
just right
that they were all put together in the most beautiful way we could
we did not leave a stone unturned in doing that work
i can not put in words how much this record, stadium arcadium, means
to us
how sacred the sound of it is to us
and how many sleepless nights and hardworking days we all had
thinking about how to make it be the best sounding thing we could
and now, for someone to take it and put it out there with this poor
sound quality
it is a painful pill for us to swallow
let me tell you
this bums all of us out
and i know that, as sensitive as john frusciante is about sound
the idea of anyone getting and hearing this thing that way
will devastate him
for people to not hear the work the way we meant it to be
will really hurt him deep inside
and all of us will hurt

yes, it is stealing from us, and that is lame
everyone has to live with their own conscience on that one
let it be your guide
but to take a version that has been defiled sound wise
a version in which some idiot has taken our year and a half of soul
baring work and pissed all over it
that will break our hearts

sincerely,

flea

Three things:
1. The version I heard of Rapidshare sounds great
2. Chad Smith is a dick, glad people are breaking his heart
3. Chad Smith is bald, why doesn't he take off that stupid hat? Only two people wear their hats backwards, catchers and assholes. Well, Chad, got a game today?

So Flea has taken the baton from that dick from Metallica, Lars. I couldn't stand it when he pissed & moaned & it is less becoming of Flea. I didn't realize just how sensitive a chap Flea was. What is his address, I'll send him some money. Just SHUT THE HELL Up already.

Dave Navarro isn't even a pimple on John Frusciante's ass! Frusciante and the RHCP went through some serious shit for this album, supposedly. I was gonna download it, but I admire Frusciante so much that I'll wait.

Posted by brassbonanza | May 4, 2006 1:51 PM

C'mon guys, have a heart and feel bad for this rag tag bunch of dreamers!

The poor innocent lambs, fresh-faced and daring enough to tangle with the overgrown beast that is the music industry. And a double record no less? Such idealism! Such bravery!

Though I've never heard of them, this is obviously a band of struggling musicians...otherwise they would have been able to spend more than 20 bucks on the cover design for the cd.

If only they were a more seasoned band with several multi-platinum records under their belts. Maybe then they would have had the wisdom and perspective to deal with this tragedy in stride and it wouldn't have been so detrimental to their collective broken heart.

Posted by d-christ | May 4, 2006 2:00 PM

Just because they "went through some serious s#@t for this album" doesn't make Frusciante a good guitarist.

Dave Navarro gave the Chili Peppers a flexibility as a band that they will never have with this guy. He made an average band great for a short period of time.

Posted by Loop | May 4, 2006 2:08 PM

Didn't Kevin Federline have this problem too? See where he is now, don'tcha? All up in Britney's ASSSS. PO - PO!!

Posted by jesus™, only child | May 4, 2006 2:10 PM

No, Frusciante was a great guitarist before this album!

Dave Navarro almost ruined the Chili Peppers! One Hot Minute was a horrible album. Let's thank Navarro for such great gems like, "Aeroplane" and "Love RollerCoaster." In Jane's he belonged, but not in the Chili Peppers.

The sooner people come to terms with Frusciante being one of the best guitarists out there, the better!

Posted by brassbonanza | May 4, 2006 2:22 PM

I have had plenty of opportunity to nab this album off of rapidshare & guess what? I didn't. Know what else. I probably won't buy it. Music I will only hear blasting from some jocks Jeep.

break your heart? oh fuck off. I would never buy this record, but now, because I can, I might listen to it...does that break your heart? That I might hear it? Then I might even but it? But nah, you guys haven't been relevant in 15 years.

But here's what breaks my heart, mr. flea, when file-sharing software is corrupted and innovative companies are shut down because the music industry is trying to protect a distribution system that is inefficient and outmoded. My band wants to use grokster to give away songs. But now we can't because bands like Flea's representatives sued them into oblivion. Punish pirates, not technology. Of course, it's perfectly non heart-breaking for SONY to sell cds loaded with spyware, thought, right Flea?

This is not about piracy, mr. flea. This is about control of the distribution system. Record companies don't fear lost album sales as much as they fear the idea that rather than have to buy the shit they put out, their products will have to compete with bands that didn't have to pay off radio djs to get heard or buy co-op sales position in record stores.

The music business can suck my c*ck. The have been screwing us all with ridiculous prices for the past 20 years. Revolution NOW, RIAA. I hope you go the way of the dinosaurs.

Posted by 15 | May 4, 2006 4:23 PM

stop with all the pissing and moaning
the digital age and this argument about stealing is no different than when I was in 7th grade and my buddy dubbed Dokken's beast from the east for me.

and for whoever is arguing that Navarro is a better guitarist and added more to the band than frusciante is out of their freaking minds. John Frusciante is one of the greatest guitars players of this generation. The guy is insanely prolific and gifted. Dave Navarro is good at looking in the mirror and wearing leather pants

Posted by Anonymous | May 4, 2006 4:41 PM

andrieu, do you think anyone would have given a rat's ass about your unknown band's songs if you had uploaded them to Grokster? I can't imagine that anyone but a very miniscule sliver of P2P network users looks for music other than that which they've already heard or music from bands they've heard a little buzz about.

You mention the SONY spyware. The companies that create the P2P software make their money by bundling spyware with it. Then they wink at the fact that the users of their software use it to obtain copies of copyrighted material without paying for it, because the more users they have, the more they can charge to bundle spyware with their software. You shouldn't assume that these companies are powerless to stop users from violating copyrights; BitTorrent agred to a deal with the MPAA to remove copyrighted movies. True, they probably did so hoping to get a piece of the future action of legal movie downloads, but it just shows that it's possible to monitor.

I am not defending the major record labels' business practices here. I just fear that a future in which audio recordings can earn only very little money will be bereft of sonically sophisticated recordings that cost a lot to create.

And another thing: If you want to get your music out on the Web, what's wrong with MySpace?

Posted by Sgt. Pepper | May 4, 2006 4:50 PM

MySpace Sucks. I will NEVER use it again. I refuse to submit any marketing info (ie: personal habits, likes, etc.) to one Mr. Rupert Murdoch & company. They can go to hell.

Posted by TheMan | May 4, 2006 5:13 PM

MySpace asks the musicians who set up profiles for their music (as opposed to their own personal profiles, which lack the music player) for personal info? Why not just give MySpace phony personal info except for the e-mail address? The e-mail address can be that of a free e-mail account that you set up just to sign up for MySpace. I imagine you'd use it only to log onto MySpace and to check it occasionally for important e-mails from MySpace and just ignore any spam that gets sent to it.

sgt. pepper: from what i believe the BitTorrent agreement was simply to remove copyrighted movies from their search engine results....but the BitTorrent client (and other clients using the bittorrent protocol) can still be used to download movies from other search engines/trackers.

im not really sure what the agreement with the MPAA accomplishes.

Ah. I stand corrected.

Still, are struggling musicians really willing to declare that the enemy (P2P networks of users who steal, and not just sample, copyrighted recordings) of their enemy (the major record labels) is their friend?

Most RHCP fans, of which I am not one, will buy the album when it comes out whether they download it first to listen to it or not. The rest who download it probably weren't gonna buy it at first place. Listening to the album might make these people go and buy concert tickets, which will make more money for RHCP than album sales. Also I can't believe he mentions the audio quality. I'm sure the leaks are better quality than the 128kbps DRM crap they offer at iTunes. And they support iTunes by giving them exclusive bonus material. What a hypocrite.

Sgt. Pep, we'll never know because i can't upload them. But the web has far greater reach than Virgin Megastore, right? YOu wouldn't argue that i could give away thousands of copies online? But my point is this: we need to get past this idea that listening, dowloading music is automatically theft. U2's last record was leaked, it sold. More to teh point: P2P technologies offer millions of bands and solo artists the opporunity to distribute music and make a modest living do it. But these avenues are being closed off in the name of piracy. You wonder who would want to hear my band's songs, well I'm confident someone in the whole wide internet world does, and may pay me to play for them. DOn't be so cavalier about that idea because i'm not Flea. I'm still pretty good, and I deserve the chance to distribuite. Yet I'm supposed to believe that p2p technology hurts artists? That p2p is bad for the ecology of the music world? Truth is P2P does threaten the starmaking, cigar chomping major labels, but it enables so many more people to make a living making music. Maybe not MTV cribs-style lives, but good honest real lives. Hey, I sell t-shirts, tour, and sell records for people who still want the thing, all as a cottage industry. I want anyone who wants to hear my shit to find it online. Will that be possible? Sgt. Pep, trying to stop people from downloading by banning technologies that have substantial non-infringing uses for artists is simply bad for culture. Period. I believe this to the core. Punish pirates, as i said. Find the guy who leaked Flea's record, punish him. But technology is neutral. Leave it alone. If we give the keys to the future to the people who controlled the last century's distribution of content, what are we locking out?

The red hot chili peppers are the best band in the entire world. If you don't agree than you should go die. Take a look at the record sales, talent and look. They are all that and a bag of chips, maybe a couple bags of chips. Best bassist best guitarist best drummer and best vocals ever. If you can find a better frontman than Anthony Kiedis then comment here so i can laugh at it.

John Frusciante is better than Dave! WHO made the rhcp shine? I mean BLOOD SUGAR SEX MAGIC! It all went good when John joined the band! Dave is good 2.. I like warped.. but one hot minute wasn't a grat album.. Dave is very sweet but I LOVE the band as they are now-with john..
Whatever people- It's not supposed 2 get out on internet like that- and if it does get out be4 the release it's going 2 be a BIG probem. EVERYBODY is curious and wants 2 hear it.. And then they will not buy the real album.. RHCP is musicians (like them or not) and their job is 2 make a living from their music. I mean OK they DO get millions BUT they worked on that album 4 a year or MORE!!! You go and count what your parents makes in a year and multiply with 2 =4 persones (band members)... That's a lot of money I think...

If I downloaded the album becuase I was curious I wouldnät buy it later.. I mean if I already have it why should I buy it.. THAT is the problem..

LOVE RHCP :D:D

everyone should look in their own pond before talking and judging the work of someone else.Have you ever aclomplished something great in your life that is comparible to that what the band did ?
I guees not...

We all have big mouths,dont'we.But when it comes to action,we are all just big pussies and shit our pants.Go try and create something equal to the work of the band.And you'll will fail.Becouse you talk to much and do nothing but shit around all day about someone elses actions.

Fuck you

It's all easy on the back of someone else.
I'll say it again

Fuck You

Flea is right in every single word he said.If you don't understand it it's you're fuckin problem.

You idiots, none of you can say anything against Flea or the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Do something godly and come back.
