ten years ago, we were gathered around the old tube radio, trying to dial in some late night dj playing the newest cd by the red hot chili peppers' [left] and...well, perhaps our radios didn't have tubes then, and maybe no one was listening to radios, even back then.
[WORD: Mike Ragogna interviews chili pepper drummer Chad Smith Thu Sep 13 at 1pm.]
but my point is that 10 years ago, musically, seems like a long time. and yet, strangely, most of the artists who were making creative and interesting music then (coldplay, infected mushroom [right], the flaming lips, gorillaz, of montreal), are still making it today (two exceptions being george harrison and the one hit wonders, las ketchup).
this week, take a look back 10 years ago, and then ponder this: will we still be listening to these same artists 10 years from now? listen to my 2022 show to find out.
all the artists and all their songs are listed here: 2002.
