RHCP Guitar Carousel: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, and There For Tomorrow

"DON'T FORGET ME"  RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

Spinal Tap had the never ending drummer replacement theme, well, the Chili Peppers prove life imitates art when it comes to their lead guitarists.  First Hillel Slovak (heroin OD in 1988), P-Funk's Dwayne McKnight (temp), John Frusciante (their 5 big CDs), Arik Marshall (tour replacement), Dave Navarro (from Jane's Addiction), back to Frusciante after rehab, now Josh Klinghoffer for their new CD.   Frusciante was the best of the bunch, watch after the 5 minute intro the blistering, amazing solo by John.

"BRAIN STEW/JADED"  GREEN DAY
Green Day has been criticized for being too pop for punk, not hardcore, and commercial.   I'd argue that they introduced a lot of people to a new genre who later learned about bands like Black Flag, Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, Bad Religion, and so many more punk bands that never received commercial acclaim.   Brain Stew/Jaded is from 1995's Insomniac CD and the two songs became a medley in concerts.   

"REMEMBER WHEN"   THERE FOR TOMORROW
My favorite song by Orlando's pop punk band, There For Tomorrow.    Like most bands of the genre, the Vans Warped Tour has been critical to their success.   TFT has been on three Warped Tours.  "Remember When" has a great lyric:  "The door was always open but not enough to let me in.  My eyes are wide awake and I can see you clearly, but you don't stand out a bit. "
