The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a band born and bred in LA. School friends AnthonyKiedis (vox) and Mike Balzary (Flea), JackIrons (drums) and Hillel Slovak (Guitar)formed a band that quickly became popular on the LA live circuit for their raucous,livelyand often naked performances.After three reasonably successful albums (RHCP, Freaky Styley, and Uplift Mofo PartyPlan),Hillel died of a heroin overdose (drugs being an issue that had and wouldplague the band for years). Jack left, Kiedis The 90'smarked a decade of change,peaks and troughs for the Chilis. Their masterwork Blood Sugar Sex Magik wasmassive, toomassive for John (who had always wanted the Chilis to stay true to theirroots). He left the band to struggle as a heroineaddict. The 1995 album with Jane'sAddiction's Dave Navarro in the guitar slot was successful at the time, but isnowrecognised as a poor move for the Chilis, moving to a heavier and more guitaroriented metal.Frusciante (clean after nearlydying many times) was drawn back to the band and in1999 they created their most successful, more mainstream rockalbumCalifornication. By The Way followed in 2002, showing off a more mature andexperimental side of the Chilis. The everlasting chemistry between the guitarists ofthe Chili's and virtuoso bass of Flea, coupled with the boistrous lyrics of Kiedisandthe pounding rythms of Chad Smith have made a plethora of great songs and theChilis are now one of the biggest stadiumacts in the world.In 2006 they released Stadium Arcadium to much critical appeal. It reached no. 1on the billboard albumcharts and propelled them to become arguably the mostpopular band on Earth.In June 2011, it was revealed that the bandstenth studio album, entitled I'm WithYou, would be released in the U.S. on August 30 2011, and slightly earlier in someothermarkets.The Red Hot Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame with the class of 2012, also releasingtheir newest album "I'm With You" duringthe same year. « hide
