Happy 10th Anniversary to “Desecration Smile”.

I love the feeling when it falls apart.
I’m slow to finish but I’m quick to start and
Beneath the heather lies the meadowlark
And I’m… Slow to finish but I’m quick to start.

Never in the wrong time or wrong place.
Desecration is the smile on my face.
The love I made is the shape of my space,
My face, my face…”    Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Desecration Smile”.

I’m not trying to be the “stage-mom”, pushing him into the stage. He suggested that he was comfortable a verse of that song and I was kinda like “Okay, well, let’s practise” and he’s like “No, I already practise that. I’m good, I’m ready.” He’s a little bit smart than his dad.”  — Anthony Kiedis about Everly Bear on stage, February, 2017.

“Josh is wildly generous as a musical partner, he is super patient and giving and I don’t seem to have any sort of an ego conflict with Josh. Whatever he does, whatever I do, it’s just supportive. Sometimes when you’re working with musicians they can be like “Eh, I can think of something better”, but with Josh is just like “Dude, I love that, let’s go play!”. 
So he makes me very comfortable, really puts me at ease.”
