When the Red Hot Chili Peppers are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next, one former member that kept an edgy presence in the band will not be along. John Frusciante, the Chilis’ two term guitarist, has passed on the band’s invitation to attend. As drummer Chad Smith speculated to Guitar World:
He’s the kind of guy, I think, that once he’s finished with something he’s just on to the next phase of his life.
The ceremony will take place April 14th in Cleveland.
