As I type this, I listen to “The Zephyr Song” by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and I have just begun to contemplate odd ideas. I don’t understand why I feel some sort of awkward attraction for the life of rock stars -- especially eccentric, intelligent, and such wild ones. I am a practicing Christian, and have a good understanding of what good music really is. I do not appreciate the whole "drugs-and-alcohol" extravagance incorporated in the life of rock-and-roll stars. But I can’t help having some sort of fascination with bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead. They seem so abstract and complete in fortitude. Is it their hardships and successes that attract me/us? After all, the lead singer of RHCP endured years of drug addiction, and is now drug-free. Or is it their seemingly philosophical lyrics (which I’m not even sure they intended to write)? Maybe inspirational lyrics and/or music? I can’t seem to pin point what it actually is. Am I the only one?
