Stunned! A complete bombshell has dropped tonight. Josh Klinghoffer is no longer part of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and John Frusciante has re-joined the band. There are no details (yet) other than a post made on the band’s Instragram page and Flea’s social media accounts.
I’ve been a bit delayed posting as everyone assumed it was a hack at first, but someone I trust has just confirmed the news.
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.
