Biography

Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, United States (1983 – present)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a band based in Hollywood, California and were formed in 1983, in Los Angeles, California. The band currently consists of founding members Anthony Kiedis (vocals) and Michael “Flea” Balzary (bass) along with a longtime member Chad Smith (drums). Guitarist John Frusciante quietly left the band on good terms in late 2008. On January 2, 2010, Josh Klinghoffer was announced as Frusciante’s replacement.

The band initially formed for a one-off support act for a friend’s band, calling themselves Tony Flow And The Miraculously Majestic Masters Of Mayhem. Upon renaming themselves Red Hot Chili Peppers, they played a handful of small club venues in Los Angeles in 1983, before they were signed to EMI Records.

    Oh ho ho. I hate Raindance Maggie. If I ever meet her I'll punch her in the jugular. Seriously though, it's easily my least favorite song these guys have ever done.
