Sure the reptile guy was always a solid school assembly but imagine what it was like to head to the gymnasium at 930am and see RHCP?!
HOLD MY BACKPACK WITCHES, I’M CROWDSURFIN’
Not only did their Great Pumpkin headlining show rock the Viewpoint student body, their performance may have squashed a nasty beef with multi-talented 80s heart throb, Mr. Scott Baio. You read that right.
Let me break it down for you. RHCP drummer, Chad Smith and Baio, both send their kids to Viewpoint…and when Donald Trump was bragging about grabbing “p*ssy” , as noted in “When You’re A Star, You Can Do Anything” celebrity handbook, Chad’s wife, Nancy, confronted Baio for being a Trump supporter. Sadly, the situation escalated, Baio filed assault charges which were ultimately dismissed but that probably didn’t make school any less awkward for the parents or the kids.
Fast Forward to The Great Pumpkin Show and the curiosity was killing me. Could they, would they hug it out?

So no, maybe they’re wasn’t an onstage collab of Higher Ground but Baio did give a standing (Bai)O. Probably started as a slow clap in true 80s form. As for whether Baio’s tweet was genuine or hyperbole, I don’t know. Maybe for once, it was a well-intended start of accountability/honesty? Owning mistakes on both sides, apologizing and moving forward.
More importantly, these kids had the sweetest assembly in the history of school assemblies. Even the reptile guy would agree to that.
