PART I

1. I chose to write about this article because I'm fond of old 90's rock music, especially the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I think it's interesting reading about artists and bands and their stories.

2. In this article I learned about a saxophonist, Miguel Zenon. He was born and raised in Puerto Rico. Miguel makes jazz music and is coming about with a new album. I also learned about Anthony Keidis's (the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) struggle with drugs and other crimes and he has been sober for a while. It talks about how some song relate to his struggle with addiction.

PART II

This article is about Miguel Zenon and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Miguel Zenon is a saxophonist born in Puerto Rico. In 2008 he received the MacArthus Award for contemporary jazz. Most of his work is old Puerto Rican jazz. "Jibaro" and "Esta Plena" are his most famous songs that bring out the islands old jazz. Miguel remade songs from a famous film called "Buena Vist Social Club". In his latest album he's trying to preserve the original sounds of this song but remaking the beautiful ensemble.

The second section of the article is about the Red Hot Chili Peppers but mainly Anthony Keidis. The lead singer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers battled through addiction and finally comes to realization that he doesn't need drugs or prostitutes to make good music. In many of his songs, he relates to his bumps in
