John Frusciante is back in Red Hot Chili Peppers
Longtime Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is back in the band again. Frusciante first joined the band in 1988 and wrote and recorded 1989's Mother's Milk and 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik with the band, before leaving in 1992 and then rejoining in 1998 to do Californication, By the Way, and Stadium Arcadium with them. He left again in 2009 and was replaced by Josh Klinghoffer, who is now parting with RHCP upon Frusciante's return.
The band writes, "The Red Hot Chili Peppers announce that we are parting ways with our guitarist of the past ten years, Josh Klinghoffer. Josh is a beautiful musician who we respect and love. We are deeply grateful for our time with him, and the countless gifts he shared with us. We also announce, with great excitement and full hearts, that John Frusciante is rejoining our group. Thank you."
