I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I recently discovered that Under The Bridge by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers describes Anthony Kiedis’s personal addiction to drugs. Originally a poem he wrote for himself, Kiedis transformed it into one of the band’s biggest and most defining hits. ‘The Bridge’ in question was where the singer, in his early years, would visit to buy and shoot heroin.
I’m pleased to say that nothing too eventful was taking place under one of my local bridges on this beautiful sunny morning.
