"Being a Red Hot Chili Pepper is about being free and not being tied down to anything, not trying to fit into any mold or any style or any category.
As far as a lifestyle that extends to the way you look and the way you talk and the way you act, anyone that would consciously apply any rock & roll cliches to their life obviously would not fit into being a Red Hot Chili Pepper. Someone who has a natural passion and love for music, particularly funk music, would be someone that could be in the Red Hot Chili Peppers"
'Where I go, I just don't know
I got to, gotta, gotta take it slow
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna give ya some of my good time'
- Soul to Squeeze, Red Hot Chili Peppers
