hi verena!

alderon refers to the planet in star wars which is blown up by the death star.
"alderons not far away" is in my opinion a slight hint that we are heading in the wrong direction ;-)

greetinx,
ronnos

By the way, this planet in "Star Wars" is called Alderaan, I repeat: ALDERAAN), not Alderon...

Cheers,
KT

Does anyone know if Cobain in the song "Californication" refers to Kurt Cobain? --> www.nirvana.150m.com <--

Yeah Cobain is Kurt.

He and Anthony were friends or at least they toured together and were associates.

Tearjerker from the One Hot Minute is about Kurt.

Anthony obviously liked the guy; understandble since he was a beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed "sensitive little pisces" rock star poet.

Pretty heady combination I'd say.

as stated, maybe i'm strange but i really had never noticed anything about Alderon or Alderaan (however you spell it)in Star Wars. I've seen the movies a number of times but somehow missed that fact. Thanx Justin for clearing that up, much appreciation on my part. I love RHCP and have always wondered what he meant by Alderon or Alderaan (again, however the hell you spell it). I think you're right in saying "our lives are becoming more and more like movies and the events which happen in them are getting closer to our lives", they are, and it's cool how Anythony has picked up on that.

[> Alderon is a planet in Star Wars -- Justin Bunn, 13:03:12 02/02/04 Mon (NoHost/206.172.225.80)

Alderon is the name of a planet in Star Wars: A new Hope. My take is that Anthony is talking about how our lives are becoming more and more like movies and the events which happen in them are getting closer to our lives. Alderon is the planet that, if my Star Wars trivia serves me correctly, Princess Leia is from. It was destroyed.

Alderon is a biotechnology company. I don't think the Chili Peppers would make such a mistake in pronunciation. The planet destroyed in Star Wars is pronounced "Ahl-duh-RAN". Either way, it's some sort of comment on the current state of things. Go figure. As for the Cobain mentioned in the song, that's been confirmed as a reference to Kurt Cobain of Nirvana.

Cheers,
Rena

WTF ARG! This is so annoying, there's an Alderon biotech company and when I searched the web I got some biblical crap on Alderon so I'm trying to figure out where it is on the page. Edit: Find doesn't work.

[> I know what Alderon means -- Christine, 07:42:40 06/20/06 Tue (71-86-188-136.dhcp.mrqt.mi.charter.com/71.86.188.136)

In the lyrics of the song Californication they say "Space may be the final frontier, But it's made in a Hollywood basement". These lyrics are in the same verse. This was the hint for what Alderon meant. Alderon is a fictional planet from the movie Star Wars. I hope my answer was satisfactory. When I read your question I had to think about it too. Post me a message back when you get this,if you have the time. If you want you can e-mail me at the adress above.
