How Funky is YOUR Monk ?

Published On September 24, 2018 | By Matt McNeill | Afternoons

27 years ago – In 1991, the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their fifth studio album
“Blood Sugar Sex Magick”. The album’s hits included “Under the Bridge”,
“Give It Away”, and “Suck My Kiss” – and one of MY favourites… Funky Monks.

And so I dug up one of my favourite interview clips of Andy and John  chatting on a boat,
going down a canal in Amsterdam, talking about where that super funky riff came from in
Funky Monks.. and guaranteed you’ll wanna cue up your Blood Sugar Sex Magick CD
to hear it again after this description of how the song game to be
(Warning: Severe Funk Awesomeness + some Frusciante F Bombs, as is tradition…)
