Seriously. Just look at the man. Coolest guy ever, yeah? But wait, there’s more. He’s worked with the most incredible musicians of our time. Of my parents’ time. Let’s discuss: LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Slayer, Mick Jagger, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Willie Nelson, Rage Against the Machine, Jay Z, Brandi Carlile, Pete Yorn, Avett Brothers, Kanye West, Poison, Shakira, Neil Diamond, Weezer, Kid Rock, Josh Groban, Adele. And that’s like 40%.
The stories this guy must have. He’s a totally chill kind of guy. In an interview with Anthony Kiedis (which you can find here) he talks about he recently got in touch with his inner self. Adopting an intense workout regime including surfing on a regular basis, this guy has got to be the coolest, chillest man to hang out with. (Do I sound completely hippie yet?)
I mean let’s be real. Who doesn’t want to be friends with a guy who has a beard like that?
