New Red Hot Chilli Peppers album “Unlimited Love” w/ John Frusciante being back is freakin’ awesome, the boys still got it…

Man, I’m so freakin’ happy that John Frusciante is back. The Chilli Peppers are back in true form. I’m a longtime Chilli Peppers fan. Been a fan since the 90’s when “Under the Bridge” song exploded all over the place and then I went out and bought the “Blood Suger Sex Magick” album on CD which I still have sitting on my shelf.

I lost interest in the Chilli Peppers when that other guy took over after John left. I wasn’t that crazy about that Klinghoffer guy. Klinghoffer wasn’t the Chilli Peppers, it’s John that defines the band’s sound and John is the Chilli Peppers.

I listened to their new album “Unlimited Love” this week and it’s freakin’ awesome. Gonna be listening to this one a lot I think ’cause it’s their best new album since “By the Way”.

On “Unlimited Love”, it’s a way different album than past records but the Chilli Peppers still got the mix of funk, hard rock and ballads. They do a mix of all three. On “Unlimited Love”, they still have plenty of songs that make you wanna get up and dance ’cause that’s what they are pretty much, a dance band but they do have slower music.

I think the band is on fire more than ever and getting better. John’s guitar playing is way better than ever, his guitar tone is insane and Anthony’s singing is killer still. Of course, Flea and Chad are still a killer rhythm section but they are way tighter now. I think they’ve all gotten better with John being back. The album clocks in over an hour but it goes by fast.

It’s a great album. Definitely recommended for long time fans and newbies too. Definitely check it out, yo!


John Frusciante officially re-joins the Red Hot Chilli Peppers as a full time member…

This is really great news. The Chilli Peppers announced on their IG page that their long-time guitarist John Frusciante has now officially re-joined the band as their full time guitarist again. This means that their previous guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer will have to be replaced so John can rejoin the group. Keep in mind though that Klinghoffer is not being fired from the band ’cause the band here wants to make it clear that it was an amicable split between the two. It looks like the guys in the Chilli Peppers had a long talk with Klinghoffer for him to leave the band so John can re-join and looks like Klinghoffer was all for it. Why? I would think Klinghoffer is a fan of the Chilli Peppers like the rest of us and he wanted to see John re-join.

I stopped supporting the Chilli Peppers music once John left ’cause I wasn’t that crazy about that Klinghoffer’s guitar playing style. The Peppers music with Klinghoffer as guitarist never grabbed me. Admittedly, I do have their album “I’m With You” w/ Klinghoffer as guitarist on it but I didn’t like that album too much ’cause it didn’t feel like a Chilli Peppers record at all so I didn’t bother buying their latest album, “The Getaway”. The Chilli Peppers only did two albums with Josh.

John Frusciante is coming back as a full time member. It isn’t going to be a one-off kind of thing. That means Frusciante will be back to recording in the studio with the Chilli Peppers and going on full World Tours with them and stuff.

Like everyone else, I too am a HUGE fan of the Frusciante era of the Chilli Peppers. The Chilli Peppers wrote the best songs with Frusciante. The Chilli Peppers with Frusciante as guitarist were hit makers… they wrote a bunch of smash hits that everyone knows and love: “Under the Bridge”, “Give It Away”, “Suck My Kiss”, “Californication”, “By The Way”, “Scar Tissue”, “Can’t Stop”, “Soul To Squeeze”, etc. The list is endless… Frusciante wrote all those songs with the band. John wrote memorable songs with the Chilli Peppers that never left our heads.

Did Klinghoffer write any smash hits with the two albums they did with the Chilli Peppers that would be considered radiofriendly? Maybe the song “Dark Necessittes” but that’s about it.

Now I’m looking forward to the next Chilli Peppers record when Frusciante hits the studio with them again. They’re probably gonna hit the studio again to write and record songs for the next album asap. The next album probably won’t come out ’til 2021 ’cause it takes forever to record an album. Now the Chilli Peppers can go back to make some sick music again with Frusciante on guitar ’cause the band was at their best with Frusciante. Glad that John is coming back though after a long hiatus from the band.

Wonder what made John come back to them? Maybe John wrote a bunch of song ideas that would be good for Chilli Peppers music and that’s probably what did it, I bet. Maybe John just felt like having fun again. He probably just missed making music with them and wanted to get back into it.

This is great news, though and I’m excited!


BREAKING NEWS: John Frusciante quits the Chilli Peppers…

This is sad news and a real shame too. John Frusciante announced he has officially quit, the Chilli Peppers. He left a few times before, but I think this time, it’s for good.

Really sad because he is the reason I became a fan of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers to begin with. He’s an amazing guitarist with a unique style. I always saw him as a young version of Jimi Hendrix.

The Chilli Peppers went through several guitarists over the years of their career. I think Frusciante perfected the Chilli Pepper’s sound. Frusciante made the Chilli Pepper’s signature music. Kiedis and Flea will probably replace him, but in my opinion, Frusciante can’t be replaced.

I don’t think I’ll support the Chilli Peppers anymore ’cause it’s going to be weird without Frusciante. Can’t hear the band without him. I thought Frusciante was the main guy for the band and he has always been an important member of the band.

The Chilli Peppers will fail without him. This news sucks. Why, John, Why? It’s too early!
