Happy 50th Hillel...

It would have been Hillel Slovak's 50th today, April 13th, had he still been with us.

The first time I heard the Chili Peppers it was hearing the awesome Blackeyed Blonde from 1985's Freaky Styley LP in Thrashin'. A b-grade but completely awesome movie with a skate story line.. The song was playing in the background and it instantly got into my veins and I was addicted to the Peppers.

It was through that song that my obsession began with Hillel, the band and later John Frusciante. The Peppers are now sadly a shadow of their former selves but I will always love the band, JF and my man Hillel.

Much love & respect.
