The Peppers funk it up in a home-made documentary...
15 February 2001 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

A must-have for any Red Hot Chili Peppers fan... This documentary, set in the time period during the recording of 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik', shows a rare view of the Peppers at ease in their recording studio/lovely Hollywood mansion. Aside from a 'fisting' anecdote, care of John Frusciante, and comments by the band on porn magazines....the content is pretty clean. In this video, you get a glimpse at the home/recording life of Flea, Chad, John, and Anthony. All in black and white, 'Funky Monks' beautifully frames an incredible time in the Chili Peppers' illustrious history. I give it an A+!
