WARDEN TRACKS... Today you're getting a frosty treat from Red Hot Chili Peppers!  In 2006, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famers released a double-album that was jam packed with incredible tunes from front-to-back & front-to-back again, called "Stadium Arcadium."  Later today I'll be posting another "Vintage Series" interview, featuring "in again, out again" guitarist extraordinaire, John Frusciante.  From the last RHCP album he played on, heat yourself up with "SNOW (HEY OH)."  Press the play button in the album graphic and dig it, man.
