Red Hot Chili Peppers Alternativ rock , funkrock Psykedelisk rock. EMI , Warner Bros. Two weeks earlier however, What Is This?
Instead of dissolving the band, Kiedis and Flea recruited new members. The band held auditions for a new guitarist but decided after a few practices that Weirdos guitarist Dix Denney did not fit.
Kiedis described the two final candidates, Mark Nine and Jack Sherman , respectively as a "hip avant-garde art school refugee" and a nerd looking guy with a combed-back Jewfro with an unknown background.
Though the album did not set sales records, airplay on college radio and MTV helped to build a fan base,  and the album ultimately sold , copies.
During the tour, continuing musical and lifestyle tension between Kiedis and Sherman complicated the transition between concert and daily band life.
Hillel Slovak, who had just quit What Is This? George Clinton produced the next album, Freaky Styley The band often indulged in heavy heroin use while recording the album, which influenced the lyrics and musical direction of the album.
The subsequent tour was also considered unproductive by the band. In spring , the band decided to begin work on their upcoming album. During the recording and subsequent tour of Freaky Styley , Kiedis and Slovak were dealing with debilitating heroin addictions.
Kiedis called his mother in Michigan for guidance and she promptly sent him to drug rehabilitation. The album was recorded in the basement of the Capitol Records Building.
His drug use "made a mess of the early recording process", but the band still had an enjoyable time recording the album.
Although it peaked at only No. During this period however, Kiedis and Slovak had both developed serious drug addictions,  often abandoning the band, each other, and their significant others for days on end.
Irons decided he had to leave the group, saying that he did not want to be part of a group where his friends were dying.
Irons, who would battle through years of depression, went on to become a member of Seattle grunge band Pearl Jam many years later. After losing two of the original band members, Flea and Kiedis started looking for musicians to fill those spots.
Peligro of the punk rock outfit Dead Kennedys replaced Irons. Kiedis and Flea had been friends of Peligro for many years and even had a joke band together called Three Little Butt Hairs.
With a new lineup set, Kiedis decided to enter rehab to fix his drug problem. Kiedis had no desire to be there; however, Timmons urged him to talk to Slovak.
Within minutes, Kiedis had opened up and could not stop crying. Thirty days later, Kiedis left rehab and was ready to resume his career with the band.
Three dates into the tour, McKnight was fired, because the chemistry was not there with the other three. Frusciante was originally directed to audition for the band Thelonious Monster , but Kiedis said that he knew right away that Frusciante would be in his band.
The new lineup immediately began writing music for the next album and went on a short tour dubbed the Turd Town Tour , although in November, Kiedis and Flea felt the need to fire drummer Peligro due to his own drug and alcohol problems.
Much like McKnight, Peligro did not take the news well. Flea stayed in bed for days after making the decision. The Chili Peppers were again without a drummer and were forced to hold open auditions.
Denise Zoom, a friend of the band, suggested Chad Smith , claiming he was the best drummer she had ever seen. The band agreed to audition Smith, but he was late and the last drummer to audition.
Smith was a six-foot three-inch tall drummer who, according to Flea, "lit a fire under our asses". From the moment they started jamming, Smith and Flea instantly found chemistry.
Smith was a hard-hitting musician with whom the Chili Peppers believed they would create a strong relationship. Smith was so much different from the other three.
Kiedis informed Smith he would be hired on one condition: He refused, though Kiedis was not about to argue with the much larger Smith.
Modern Rock Tracks whereas " Higher Ground " charted at number eleven;  the latter of the two ultimately proved to be more successful, reaching number fifty-four in the UK and forty-five in Australia and France.
Records and hiring Rick Rubin to produce their then-untitled fifth album. The band spent six months recording a new album, with long periods of rehearsal, songwriting, and incubating ideas.
Rubin suggested the mansion magician Harry Houdini once lived in, to which they agreed. A crew was hired to set up a recording studio and other equipment required for production in the house.
The band decided that they would remain inside the mansion for the duration of recording, though according to Kiedis, Smith was convinced the location was haunted, and refused to stay.
We [the band] have nothing but warm vibes and happiness everywhere we go in this house. The band was unable to decide on the title of the album, but to Rubin, one particular song title stuck out: The album sold over 12 million copies.
The unexpected success instantly turned Red Hot Chili Peppers into rock stars. Frusciante was blindsided by his newfound fame, and struggled to cope with it.
Kiedis recalled that he and Frusciante used to get into heated discussions backstage after concerts: I would just be proud to be playing this music in clubs like you guys were doing two years ago.
Unknown to others, Frusciante was also starting his own drug habit at the time and was shutting himself off from everyone except for his girlfriend.
Frusciante abruptly quit the band hours before a show during the Blood Sugar Japanese tour in May The group held rehearsals with Zander Schloss , though after a few days they decided he was not the right fit either.
However, when it came time to play music, Marshall was always busy, so the band decided that Marshall failed to fit with their future plans and he was dismissed.
With Marshall gone, the band decided to hold open auditions which they considered a huge mess , but which however did lead to an encounter with Buckethead.
The band enjoyed his rehearsal even though he claimed to have never heard of them; Flea felt he did not fit the feel of the band.
Kiedis felt like he had the right vibe for the band and he was recruited to be the new guitarist after a few auditions.
When offered the spot this time he accepted. The band opened their set wearing enormous light bulb costumes attached precariously to chrome metallic suits, making it near-impossible for them to play their instruments.
Navarro hated the idea but went with it. The performance saw the debut of new songs such as "Warped", "Aeroplane", and "Pea" although the songs were in the beginning stages and the lyrics were very different from the final versions.
The band followed up their performance at Woodstock with a brief tour, which included headlining appearances at the Pukkelpop and Reading Festivals as well as two performances as the opening act for The Rolling Stones.
According to Kiedis, however, opening for the Stones was a horrible experience. Navarro admitted he did not care for funk music or jamming.
Kiedis was also struggling with his heroin addiction; he had been through a dental procedure in Beverly Hills, in which an addictive sedative, Valium , was used; this caused him to relapse, and he once again became dependent on drugs, although the band would not find this out until later.
With Frusciante no longer present for collaboration, songs were written at a far slower rate. I just figured that was how all guitar players were, that you showed them your lyrics and sang a little bit and the next thing you knew you had a song.
The ballad, "Tearjerker," was written about Kurt Cobain , while "Transcending", which was written by Flea, was about longtime friend, River Phoenix ; and the single " Shallow Be Thy Game " took shots at religion.
Despite mixed reviews, the album was a commercial success. This iteration of the band appeared on several soundtracks.
A Tribute to John Lennon. The band began its tour for One Hot Minute in Europe in and played 16 shows. A US tour was to follow but was postponed after Chad Smith broke his wrist.
The band considered carrying on with the tour even at one point considering Jack Irons as a replacement for Smith but there just was not enough time to rehearse with anyone new and the dates were rescheduled for early The band spent most of playing shows in the United States and Europe.
By , for the first time, the band cancelled many shows. Most of this was again due to problems within the band.
Flea at that point was exhausted, tired of playing the same songs each night and was seriously talking about quitting the band while Kiedis had recently been involved in a motorcycle accident which left one arm in a sling and created yet another drug relapse due to his use of painkillers.
Even Navarro was back to using drugs. This was at the very first Fuji Rock Festival. A massive typhoon hit that day but the band played anyway.
They played through an 8-song set before having to cut the show short due to the storm. In April it was announced that Navarro had left the band due to creative differences; Kiedis stated that the decision was "mutual".
In the years following his departure from the band, it became public that John Frusciante had developed a heroin addiction, which left him in poverty and near death.
However, Flea always remained in contact, and he helped talk Frusciante into admitting himself to Las Encinas Drug Rehabilitation Center in January With Frusciante free of his addictions and ailments, Kiedis and Flea thought it was an appropriate time to invite him back.
In April , when Flea visited him at his home and asked him to rejoin the band, Frusciante began sobbing and said "nothing would make me happier in the world.
Flea was relieved to find out that both had no bad blood towards each other and were once again excited to make music together.
Within the week and, for the first time in six years, the reunited foursome jump-started the newly reunited Red Hot Chili Peppers.
That was when I knew that this was the real deal, that the magic was about to happen again. Suddenly we could all hear, we could all listen, and instead of being caught up in our finite little balls of bullshit, we could all become players in that great universal orchestra again.
Frusciante had not played with the band since his departure and other than his solo albums had not picked up a guitar in years. He had lost his guitars in a house fire from which he barely escaped,  and experienced a difficult time resuming his prior life.
John was back to himself and brimming with confidence. The album started out as a group of fast, hardcore punk songs, which Rubin rejected.
The recording process was tough for Flea, who felt like an outsider in the band and that his role was being diminished due to a musical power struggle with Frusciante.
The album was their most subdued album to date, focusing primarily on melodic ballads as opposed to their classic rap-driven funk. Frusciante also concentrated on a more layered texture on many of the songs, often adding keyboard parts, that featured low in the mix, and also writing string arrangements for songs such as "Midnight" and "Minor Thing".
The band released their first full-length live album, Live in Hyde Park ; recorded during their performances in Hyde Park, London. Although 38 songs were created with the intention of being released as three separate albums spaced six months apart,  the band instead chose to release a track double album, and released nine of the ten as B—sides.
It was their first album to debut at No. Stadium Arcadium sold over seven million units. The song became their eleventh number one single, giving the band a cumulative total of 81 weeks at number one.
It was also the first time three consecutive singles by the band made it to number one. The band began another world tour in support of Stadium Arcadium in , beginning with promotional concerts in Europe and culminating in a two-month-long European tour from May to July.
The Peppers concluded their tour with a third European leg from June to August. In February , Stadium Arcadium won five Grammys: Following the last leg of the Stadium Arcadium tour , the band members took an extended break.
Kiedis attributed this to the band being worn out from their years of nonstop work since Californication The song would become the last song the band would record with Frusciante.
Kiedis, who had recently become a father, was looking forward to the time off and taking care of his son Everly Bear and possibly creating a short television series called Spider and Son ,  which was set to recap his autobiography.
Flea began taking music theory classes at the University of Southern California , and revealed plans to release a mainly instrumental solo record, that was being recorded in his home; guest musicians include Patti Smith and a choir from the Silverlake Conservatory.
In October the band officially ended their hiatus and minus Frusciante, entered the studio to begin writing for their tenth studio album.
Frusciante said he felt his musical interests had led him in a different direction, and that he needed to fully focus his efforts on his solo career.
The band officially began recording their tenth studio album with producer Rick Rubin in September. According to Rubin, the band recorded enough material to release a second double album, following Stadium Arcadium but ultimately decided not to.
Rubin notes, "it was painful not to share all of the material that we had, but we felt it would be too much. We really wanted it to be twelve songs but it ended up being fourteen just because nobody could agree on which twelve.
Many of the songs were written between October and August and according to Flea around 60—70 songs were written in the ten months prior to entering the studio to record the album.
In July , the band kicked off a trio of invitation-only warm-up dates in California. These were the first shows the band played since August and their first official shows with Klinghoffer as their lead guitarist.
The album topped the charts in 18 different countries although failed to provide the band with their second straight number one debut in the U.
The album was met with mostly positive reviews from the critics. Kreayshawn was tapped to direct the music video for the single, however due to unknown reasons, the video shot by Kreayshawn went unreleased and a second video directed by Marc Klasfeld was released in its place.
The band kicked off a monthlong promotional tour in August starting in Asia. In August , the band appeared on movie screens throughout the world via satellite from Cologne, Germany performing the entire new album in sequence, minus "Even You Brutus" and adding "Give It Away" and "Me and My Friends".

In June the band wrapped up their tour which began in May ; since September they had played shows on their two tours, the longest span of touring in their history without a real break.
In November , Anthony Kiedis announced that the band would be returning to the studio in December to record their newly written album.
He said that he hoped for the album to contain 13 songs, however it is likely they will "put 10 more songs on top of that".
The rough mix was recorded in March Dave Navarro, who in said it was one of the greatest songs he ever played on, tweeted "WOW what a trip down memory lane" in response to the leak.
In May, the band released "The Getaway", the title track on their upcoming album , on their YouTube channel. The Getaway made its debut at number 2 on the Billboard chart however failed to dethrone Drake who had the number one album for eight consecutive weeks.
The Getaway outsold Drake its opening week with album sales of , to 33, actually placing him at 4th in sales for the week though due to album streaming, Drake managed to top the band for the top position in the charts.
In the same month, the band members started to post images from the set of the music video. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner.
I am pretty happy to say that I have dedicated significant time documenting touring with Peppers in journals but also have thousands of amazing photos spanning decades of smiles and challenges" Rat said.
The Getaway World Tour concluded in October The tour consisted of shows lasting a year and almost five months. Work on a new album was announced in September ,  and it was to be released in We became, maybe, an inspiration to Limp Bizkit , Kid Rock , Linkin Park — all these other bands that are doing that now.
