The Red Hot Chili Peppers were forced to cancel their performance at KROQ’s Weenie Roast earlier this month when frontman Anthony Kiedis was hospitalized with intestinal flu.

In a new interview with ET Canada Kiedis discusses the incident. “It was a painful and sad thing to have to cancel shows, we don’t really do that,” he said. “I’d rather play deathly ill than not at all but in this particular instance I was starting to go down to the ground.”

“I had inflammation in my guts,” Kiedis continued. “That becomes an incredibly painful situation where you get a fever and pass out. I think I had to get sick to take a look at myself and get to the causes and conditions of my overall health. So it turned out to be a good thing, albeit painful,” he said.
