About Mother’s Milk in brief
Mother’s Milk is the fourth studio and video album by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released August 16, 1989 by EMI America. Mother’s Milk was a greater commercial success than the band’s first three albums, peaking at number 52 on the US Billboard 200. It received widespread airplay for the single ‘Knock Me Down’ and became their first gold record in early 1990. It is the only album the original members of the band recorded together. The album was the first step for the band in achieving international success and, according to Amy Hanson of AllMusic, ‘turned the tide and transformed the band from underground funk-rocking rappers to mainstream bad boys with seemingly very little effort’ It was the last album to feature guitarist H. H. Peligro, who had his own drug problems, who helped co-write ‘Sexy Maids’ and ‘Taste the Pain’ The band went on to win the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album in 1990 for the song ‘Higher Ground’, which was recorded during a tour of South Africa. The band also won the Grammys for ‘Best Hard Rock Performance’ in 1989 and ‘Best Pop Song’ in 1990. The group has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame of Fame for their contributions to the music industry in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as the Rockabilly Walk of Fame.
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers have been featured on the cover of several of the Rolling Stones’ albums, including ‘Rolling in the Deep’ in 1987 and ‘Rock and Roll With Me’ in 1988. They have also appeared on the covers of numerous compilation albums, such as ‘The Rolling Stones’, ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’, and ‘The Godfather of Rock & roll’ The group have also been featured in numerous film and television projects, including the film ‘Rock & Roll with a capital R’ and the TV series ‘The Walking Dead.’ The band has also appeared in a number of films and TV shows, including one that aired in the United States, ‘The Adventures of Hillel Slovak and the Red Hot Peppers’ in which Slovak played the lead role. In the film, Slovak plays the role of a drug-addicted drug addict who is unable to cope with the loss of his longtime friend and bandmate, Jack Irons, who also quits the band. The Uplift Mofo Party Plan, which was released in 1987, saw original drummer JackIrons return after he too left. In September 1988 they chose DeWayne ‘Blackbyrd’ McKnight, a friend of Clinton’s and former member of the funk band Parliament, to replace Slovak on guitar; D. H. ‘Peligro’ replaced Irons on drums. In October 1988, Kiedis and Flea found a replacement for McKnight in teenage guitarist John Frusciante.
