Gem of the Week: “Snow (Hey Oh)” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers

4 Mar

snowMy gem this week goes to the 2006 hit “Snow (Hey Oh)” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This one was off their double album Stadium Arcadium. I have always loved the catchy guitar riff.  Guitarist John Frusciante is one of my favorites he always brings that unique hook to The Chili Pepper songs.

Now “Snow” is actually referencing drugs and the issues that singer Anthony Kiedis struggles to overcome but the title came to my mind this week with this bitter cold winter.

The Chili Peppers are one of those bands that hold a high spot among my collection. My favorite albums are Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991) and Californication (1999).

Another thing I admire about the band is that they really appreciate fans. Last year they released a fan tribute book called Fandemonium filled with random shots of fans taken at their live shows worldwide.

Honoring their fans in that way has made me love The Chili Peppers a little more and I have seen them twice in concert. They definitely like to get crazy and interactive with fans.
