THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
BY: LOGAN GOMIA
WHEN AND WHERE THEY FORMED
1983, AT FAIRFAX HIGH SCHOOL IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
BAND MEMBERS
ANTHONY KIEDIS- VOCALIST
HILLEL SLOVAK- GUITARIST
MICHAEL "FLEA" BALZARY- BASSIST
JACK IRONS- DRUMMER
HOW THEY STARTED
THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS WERE FIRST JUST PLAYING IN THEIR GARAGES UNTIL THEY GOT THEIR FIRST PERFORMANCE AT THE RHYTHM LOUNGE. THEIR NAME OF THE BAND WASN"T EVEN RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, IT WAS TONY FLOW AND THE MAJESTIC MASTERS OF MAYHEM. THEY CHANGED IT TO RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS AFTER THEIR FIRST SHOW WAS A "HOT" SUCCESS.
THE BAND FIRST STARTED OUT PLAYING IN THEIR GARAGES AND CLUBS LIKE MOST BEGINNING ROCK STARS. THEY JOINED THE TRADITIONAL ROCK, FUNK, PUNK, AND ROCK THAT WAS MADE PROBABLY WHILE THEY WERE HIGH, DRUNK, OR BOTH. A VERY DIFFERNT STYLE THAN MANY BANDS BEFORE THEM.
THE BEGINNING OF THE BAND
SOON AFTER THEIR FIRST ALBUM STARTED GETTING FAMOUS HILLEL SLOVAK DIED OF A HEROIN OVERDOSE AND CAUSED JACK IRONS TO LEAVE THE BAND AS WELL. THIS WAS RIGHT AFTER THEY GOT SIGNED BY "EMI RECORDS."
JACK IRONS AND HILLEL SLOVAK LEFT THE BAND TO FOCUS ON SLOVAK'S BAND "WHAT IS THIS?". THIS CAUSED JACK SHERMAN AND CLIFF MARTINEZ TO JOIN THE BAND. FOR THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CHILI PEPPERS, ANDY GILL WAS HIRED FOR THEIR FIRST ALBUM, SHERMAN WAS FIRED, AND SLOVAK RETURNED.
AFTER THE SLOVAK OVERDOSE, THE BAND RECRUITED GUITARIST JOHN FRUSCIANTE, AND ACHIEVED THEIR FIRST HUGE SUCCESS, WITH "MOTHERS MILK" SELLING OVER 1 MILLION COPIES IN ITS FIRST YEARS RELEASE.
THE BAND PLAYED MUSIC THAT THE PARENTS OF KIDS WOULD PROBABLY NOT WANT THEIR KIDS LISTENING TO. THEY PLAYED SOME CONTROVERSIAL MUSIC, BUT ALL THE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS LOVED IT. CAUSING TENSION BETWEEN TEENAGERS AND PARENTS. THIS WAS THE FIRST IMES IN MUSIC THAT DRUGS AND ALCOHOL HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED.
IN 199, THEIR SECOND SUCCESS WAS "BLOOD, SUGAR, SEX, MAGIC" ALSO MOVING TO WARNER BROTHERS LABEL THE SAME YEAR.
GOT 2 GRAMMYS IN 1993 FOR BEST HARD ROCK PERFORMANCE FOR THE SINGLE "GIVE IT AWAY"
SHORTLY AFTER JOHN FRUSCINTE LEFT TO PURSUE A SOLO CAREER, AND DAVE NAVARRO JOINED THE CHILI PEPPERS. AFTER 6 YEARS HOWEVER, FRUSCIANTE RETURNED TO THE BAND.
THE NEXT 2 ALBUMS, "CALIFORNICATION" AND "BY THE WAY" WERE TWO BIG HITS. CALIFORNICATION SOLD 15 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE!
THE BAND WAS AWARDED THEIR SECOND GRAMMY IN 2002 WITH BEST ROCK SONG, "SCAR TISSUE".
THE NEXT ALBUM "STADIUM ARCADIUM" WAS THE FASTEST SELLLING SINGLE EVER. NOT ONLY THE FASTEST SELLING BUT THE FIRST ALBUM TO REACH THE U.S. TOP 10 AND BEST SELLING ALBUM OF THE YEAR.
FOLLOWING THE ALBUM, THE BAND WENT ON WORLD TOUR AND WON 5 MORE GRAMMYS.
2008 AND 2009, FRUSCIANTE LEFT THE BAND AND JOSH KLINGHOFFER TOOK HIS SPOT AT GUITAR AND WAS ON THE 10TH ALBUM "IM WITH YOU"
NOW-A-DAYS THEY STILL GO ON TOUR DURING THE SUMMERS, BUT THEY DON'T PRODUCE ANYMORE ALBUMS. THEY JUST REUSE THEIR BIGGEST HITS AND BEST SELLING SONGS AT THEIR CONCERTS. I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT THE BAND IS KNOWN FOR GOING UP ON THE STAGE WITH NOTHING BUT TUBE SOCKS. NO CLOTHES!! JUST TUBE SOCKS. THEY MAY BE A CONTROVERSIAL BAND, BUT YOU CAN'T DENY ALL THE SUCCESS THAT THEY HAVE HAD.
