Probably, the very famous guitarist John Frusciante, he can't live without the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This in fact, is not the first time that after leaving it, it returns to be part of the famous rock group, also known as RHCP.

The guitarist born in New York, in 1970, had already been part of the band, when it reached its first worldwide successes, between 1988 and 1992, the era of the albums Mother's Milk is Blood Sugar Sex Magik, so to speak. A strong dependence on heroin and serious health problems that ensued led Frusciante to move away from the scenes for the first time, despite himself.

To take over, he was equally good, Dave Navarro, who gave him his job again, in 1998, when John, detoxified, chose to return to the spotlight. Five more albums since then, were shared by the guitarist and the rest of the band, including the one that probably had the most hits of all, Californication, but also By the way is I’m with You, carry among others, the signature of John Frusciante. The guitarist, much loved by fans, with a typically Italian surname, gave up once again, to return exactly ten years later to make the strings vibrate for the Red Hot.

Next, the Instagram post with which the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced John Frusciante's return among them:

Simple black background with white writing, for the RHCP social ad, for a character who needs no introduction and who doesn't come back for the first time. These, the words of the note, far from being brief: “The Red Hot Chili Peppers announce their separation from the guitarist of the last ten years, Josh Klinghoffer. Josh is a great musician whom we respect and love. We are deeply grateful for the time spent with him and for the countless gifts he has shared with us.

We also announce with great excitement and full hearts that John Frusciante rejoins the group. Thanks”.
