There is a brief mention of RHCP in Rolling Stone Magazine (19th January, 2012) where Anthony Kiedis talks about the Chili Peppers inclusion into the Hall of Fame and remembers Hillel Slovak:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
For the Chilis, the induction is a chance to celebrate original guitarist Hillel Slovak, who died of a drug overdose in 1988. “He was a beautiful person that picked up a guitar in the 1970s and didn’t make it out of the 1980s,” says Anthony Kiedis. “Now he’s being honoured for his beauty.”
In the same magazine there is a photo of the band:

“These are some of the best shows we’ve ever done,” says Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. “We’re fucking shit up!” The Chilis’ world tour (singer Anthony Kiedis and drummer Chad Smith shown performing in Turin, Italy in December) hits the U.S. this month- and on April 14th, they join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “Because we’re in such an exciting place right now,” says Flea, “getting acknowledged for our career has a lot of meaning.”
