“Unlike the current trend of brooding portraits of rock bands on the fringe of creative or mental bankruptcy, this is a joyous celebration of the production of three music videos created for the Chili Peppers recent CD Stadium Arcadium. The first video Dani California, sends the band through a loving Forrest Gump-like time travel trip across rock history (the British Invasion, Hair Metal, Goth and more). Tell Me Baby pops unexpecting fans out of auditions and into jam sessions with the band. And in Hump De Bump, Chris Rocks stages a block party with the Peppers. The behind the scenes approach gives us access to the detailed art and costume design needed to pull of Dani and a glimpse at Tony Kaye and Chris Rocks directing styles.” (Joe Palladino)

“I literally feared for my life in the 7th grade. It wasn’t cancer or some rare bone disease. I was just a short Jewish kid and they were going to pound me for it. But they wouldn’t hit a kid with a camera that could provide them with their 15 seconds of yearbook fame. My camera has taken me from student films to feature films, garage bands to the biggest selling acts in the world and now to people who are, at once, both ordinary and extraordinary.” (David Hausen)
