Despite its short run however, the Outside Lands' organizers have managed to pull together another very impressive lineup this year, which includes Paul McCartney,...

While the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ muses typically consist of sex, sex, sex, heroin, sex, California, sex, California, and sex, the band decided to break their self-imposed mode by including LSD as an influence on their new album, Dr Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head.

While the technology to create a playable crotch-sock controller is still at least a decade off (although developers are making huge leaps and we should have playable heroin and supermodel arm candy by 2014), it looks like California kids the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be getting their very own Guitar Hero game, according to Spinner.  Guitar...
