Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Beginning as a high school group that set frontman Anthony Kiedis’ poetry to music, L.A.’s Red Hot Chili Peppers soon grew into rock leaders with their breathless blending of funk and punk. The band went through several lineup changes — including one that resulted from the death of original guitarist Hillel Slovak from a heroin overdose in 1988 — before settling on a roster featuring Kiedis, guitarist Flea, drummer Chad Smith and guitarist John Frusciante. It was with this lineup that the band would start to make waves and expand their underground following with the release of their fourth album, 1989’s ‘Mother’s Milk,’ followed by their 1991 breakthrough ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik.’ The Chili Peppers have continued to be revered as rock innovators over the years, producing countless radio-friendly hits on proceeding albums — especially 1999’s ‘Californication’ and 2002’s ‘By the Way’ — an impressive catalog spanning three decades that has earned the band a total of six Grammys.
