Chili Peppers Fuming Over Album Leak
Flea says its like someone pissing all over the record...
Red Hot Chili Peppers are seriously ticked off about their new album Stadium Arcadium being leaked on the net.
In a long angry posting on the Chilis official site, bassist Flea says that the band are all heartbroken, mainly because the version that has been leaked is not the finished article, and as such lots of people are hearing it in a sub-standard form.
"It is a painful pill for us to swallow", writes Flea." 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"
