Red Hot Chili Peppers Song Bridge Identified

(Classic Rock) Diehard Red Hot Chili Peppers fan Mark Haskell Smith has identified the brigde Anthony Kiedis wrote about in the 1992 track Under the Bridge.

The song tells the story of the singer's drug addiction issues, and Smith used clues in the lyrics and Kiedis' autobiography to locate a pedestrian viaduct on MacArthur Park in Los Angeles.

He explains: "It links Sixth and Union, the intersection Kiedis claims he was walking toward, with the drug dealers at Seventh and Hoover. It provides a discreet location for private time with personal demons."
