Charlie was reading in the newspaper that Denzel Washington's son John David was drafted into the Rams. He was surprised because who would have thought that Denzel could have a son old enough to be in the NFL? Well, we checked his birthday, and it turns out he was born in 1954! That means that he was 27 when he made Carbon Copy! Weird, huh?
I woke up with morning with a text message from Dan on my cellphone:
I got an advance of the new Chili Peppers album. This thing is going to be legendary. They basically have just outdone their entire catalog.
On the way home from Boston I was mentioning to Raz how much I was looking forward to this album. While Blood Sugar Sex Magik is one of the benchmark records of the 90s, Californication and By the Way were impressive entries as well (One Hot Minute is decent, but the absence of Frusciante is felt). Now, while Dan has been known to employ hyperbole, he does tend to have tastes that run parallel to mine when it comes to rock, so this is a good sign.
The album comes out May 9th.
