Late last year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced that guitarist John Frusciante would be rejoining the band after leaving in 2008.

Back in February, footage emerged of the band playing with Frusciante for the first time in over a decade. The Chilis played alongside with Frusciante at a memorial for Andrew Burkle, an aspiring filmmaker and the son of billionaire venture capitalist Ron Burkle.

The memorial was organised by the Tony Hawk Foundation, a charity focused on making skate parks available to today’s youth.


Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis recently revealed that his band once got a compliment off Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis about their song ‘Bad Habit’, with Kiedis telling the band backstage at a festival that the ‘Holy Fire’ song would “be a hit”.
