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 theirraucous,livelyand often naked performances.After three reasonably successful albums (RHCP, Freaky Styley, and Uplift MofoPartyPlan),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 Magikwasmassive, toomassive for John (who had always wanted the Chilis to stay true to theirroots). He left the band to struggleas a heroineaddict. The 1995 album with Jane'sAddiction's Dave Navarro in the guitar slot was successful at the time, butisnowrecognised as a poor move for the Chilis, moving to a heavier and more guitaroriented metal.Frusciante (clean afternearlydying many times) was drawn back to the band and in1999 they created their most successful, more mainstreamrockalbumCalifornication. By The Way followed in 2002, showing off a more mature andexperimental side of the Chilis. Theeverlasting chemistry between the guitarists ofthe Chili's and virtuoso bass of Flea, coupled with the boistrous lyrics ofKiedisandthe pounding rythms of Chad Smith have made a plethora of great songs and theChilis are now one of the biggeststadiumacts in the world.In 2006 they released Stadium Arcadium to much critical appeal. It reached no. 1on the billboardalbumcharts and propelled them to become arguably the mostpopular band on Earth.In June 2011, it was revealed that thebandstenth studio album, entitled I'm WithYou, would be released in the U.S. on August 30 2011, and slightly earlier insomeothermarkets.The Red Hot Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame with the class of 2012, alsoreleasingtheir newest album "I'm With You" duringthe same year. « hide
