RHCP on the “monumental change” of John Frusciante back in the group

Red Hot Chili Peppers with John Frusciante just hits it differently, and apparently Anthony Kiedis and Flea agree.

In a new interview with NME, the Chili Peppers touch on their beloved guitarist’s second comeback with Kiedis saying, “Honestly, the biggest event was John’s return to the band. It was the most monumental change in our lives. And God was me for everything and anything.

The idea of ​​approaching Frusciante on his return to the Chili Peppers came up early in the writing unlimited love, the group’s new album which will be released on April 1st.

Kiedis said: “It was happening slowly and without any real definitive training. It was just kind of a meander. And then Flea and I kinda kinda had a feeling inside of ourselves independently that was, “It would be really nice to involve John in some way in this process. ” It’s been a long time and he’s making himself known again in our circles after being in his own circle.

Of course, bringing Frusciante back meant Josh Klinghoffer had to be fired after being in the band for a decade.

“He’s been with us for 10 years, and it was an emotionally difficult thing to do,” Flea said of Klinghoffer’s firing. “Not only was he a great musician, but he was also a thoughtful and supportive team player – a community-minded, kind and intelligent person. But artistically, in terms of being able to speak the same [musical] language, it was easier to work with John. To come back into a room and start playing and let the thing unfold…was really exciting.

RHCP released their latest single “Black Summer” last Friday (February 4). “Black Summer” is accompanied by a new music video (embedded below) that shows the Chili Peppers swaying in front of various green screen landscapes and other images. The title is available for streaming and download. here.
