Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea ripped Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump in a new Rolling Stone interview.

“I can’t take Donald Trump or anything he says seriously,” he says. “I just think that he’s a silly reality-show bozo and blustering guy who likes getting attention. I don’t think he wants to be president, and I don’t think he has a chance to be the president. He’s just some egotistical, silly person whose main concern in life is getting a blowjob. He wants to be on TV and he wants everyone to thinks he’s important.”

For Flea, Trump’s controversial statements on immigration and terrorism are more “silly theatre” than bold provocations. “I don’t think he even believes what he says,” Flea says. “He’s just a product of, if you yell loud enough and bluster around enough, people are going to pay attention to you. He works the media and they love it. I’m hesitant to even discuss it because I just find it all to be really trivial.

He later added, “He’s a real-estate bozo who was born rich and has parlayed it from being a money-scammer guy.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis Talks Bernie Sanders: “He’s Old And Cute”

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis discussed his support of Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Jonesy’s Jukebox earlier this week.

“This cat Bernie Sanders stood out as being honest and likable, and actually human, a human being who cared about other human beings. So right away, we said if we ever get a chance to play a benefit for this guy, we’ll do it. If he’s real, and he makes it that far, we’ll play a show for him. Low and behold, 9 months go by, he needs us to play, so we’re there for him.”

We offered to pay for the rent of the hotel, and Bernie would not accept, he said, ‘No, I can’t take your money. That’s not how I work, I’m not taking those size contributions from any groups or organizations. If I get the nomination, you are able to donate up to $2,700.’ [That is] very unpolitical like of him.

“He’s cute. He’s old and cute.”

“I think in this case I like the dude better. God bless the whole Clinton family. Bill, I like a lot, but I prefer Bernie to Hilary.”

Alice In Chains Frontman Performs For Bernie Sanders

Alice In Chains frontman William DuVall performed at the ‘Rockin’ the Bern’ show for Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at the Adler Theatre in Davenport, Iowa over the weekend as part of an All Star Band featuring Wayne Kramer from MC5. DuVall performed “Born In The USA” and “I Won’t Back Down.” DuVall reportedly said at the show, “I don’t want to go backwards… I’m feelin’ the Bern.”

He also said, “Bernie Sanders is the most genuine person I have ever met in politics.” Sanders, a self-described Democratic Socialist, is running as a Democrat against rival Hilary Clinton in the primaries. See photos and video below, including a full video of the entire concert.

Nirvana Bassist Talks ‘Beautiful’ Kurt Cobain Dreams, Grunge Being Feminine

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic appeared on Fox Business’ Kennedy on Wednesday. Kennedy, who hosted MTV’s Alternative Nation in the 90’s, asked Novoselic about Grunge’s impact on the music industry and how it killed hair metal. Alternative Nation transcribed Novoselic’s comments.

“Things flipped like day and night. You had the hair metal bands, they had these really soft features and fluffy hair.”

Kennedy added, “Like Chris Cornell, great metal voice.”

Novoselic responded, “I love Chris, but Soundgarden wasn’t like a hair metal band. They had these soft physical features, but this macho bravado. Then Grunge rock came out, and we had facial hair and flannel shirts, but feminine sensibilities.”

Kennedy also asked Novoselic if he still dreams about Kurt Cobain. Novoselic described the dreams, “I do. It’s beautiful, it’s just loving. You know when you lose somebody, and you see them in a dream, and you just feel all this love, it’s nice.”

He also discussed Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

“I think if Bernie Sanders gets elected, we might have Sanka, but that’s his charm, he’s like the uncle who drank Sanka. Bernie Sanders is cool, I’m concerned about the position he takes on Citizens United vs. FEC.”

“First of all, it’s a very cynical title. You have someone like Bernie Sanders, standing in front of a crowd of 14,000 people, and he’s disparaging the term ‘citizens united.’ The last I checked citizens united, coming together, is a good thing.”

Dave Matthews Praises Bernie Sanders, Discusses New Album Plans

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Dave Matthews had some serious praise for Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders:

“When I hear someone speaking in terms of the workers rising up and the working people feeling like they have a voice, when I hear someone like Bernie Sanders talking, I think there’s a hope. And I have no party affiliation [laughs]. I’m not saying with his half-a-million donators and supporters that have committed 30 bucks on average to his campaign, he can win without a Super PAC. But that’s a guy who is talking about something real and that isn’t insulted by being called a liberal. Someone could call me a liberal, and I’d say, “Thank you.” Someone could call me a socialist, and I’d say, “I wish I was a socialist.” I should get a shirt that says, “Tax me! Tax the fuck out of me!” At least we’re hearing more of a voice from him by having him out there and speaking in complete sentences rather than a bunch of slogans that don’t mean anything. So I feel like there’s hope as long as some people are speaking to the real problem in this country.”

Matthews continued:

“We shouldn’t look down on homeless people in this country or the mentally ill or the people who don’t have work or migrant workers who want to come here and work hard for their futures, and they’re trying to make something. That in the richest and the most powerful country in the world we can’t house our own people and we can’t take care of people who have fallen through the cracks and that we don’t have a safety net to look after each other is fucking astounding.”

He also took time to bash the GOP and their latest debate performances:

“When I listen to the bold-faced, impossible and nonsensical, disconnected claims at the last debate, I’m like, “What the fuck are you all talking about? None of you are remotely connected. None of you have an actual plan!” I can stand up and say, “If I was President, I would make everybody’s boobs bigger, and I would make men stronger, and everybody would be happy, and everybody would be fed, and the oceans would be clean, and everyone would have jobs. And that’s what I’ll do if I’m President.” Wait, do you shit money? What are you fucking talking about? There’s no way you can do anything but damage our children’s future by claiming you can spend more money to make us stronger, make us better, make us happier, make the whole world a better, more peaceful place, and cut taxes and have less government. ‘Cause you’re just talking about something that’s fucking impossible.”

Dave also took time to address plans for a new DMB album:

“We’re going to have an album at some point. It’s not the Eighties or Nineties or Seventies when it mattered. We’ve always let people record our music, so probably they’ll end up getting some of it anyway if they just tape the shows or we put some live releases out. But at some point, we’ll have an album that we’ll put out for whatever reason people still do that.”
