However, he soon met his future bandmate Flea , and after a brief confrontation, the two became best friends and bonded while sitting next to each other in driver's ed class. We became virtually inseparable.
We were both social outcasts. We found each other and it turned out to be the longest-lasting friendship of my life. At age 15, Kiedis met future bandmate Hillel Slovak after seeing him perform with his band Anthym. After the show, Slovak invited Kiedis to his house for a snack.
Kiedis later described the experience: "Within a few minutes of hanging out with Hillel, I sensed that he was absolutely different from most of the people I'd spent time with He understood a lot about music, he was a great visual artist, and he had a sense of self and a calm about him that were just riveting. After Kiedis began working with Flea and drummer Jack Irons , he was described as a "manic master of ceremonies " before he even began singing for the group.
Irons and Slovak had begun playing together in high school while performing in a band called Chain Reaction. With Strasman set on becoming a lawyer, he quit the band to keep his grades up and focus on college.
At this point, Flea was brought into the mix. Shortly after hanging out with the band, and attending a few shows, Kiedis was offered a position in the band by Flea. He began as a hype man , going out in front of the band blurting out jokes to the audience and getting them pumped up. Kiedis, Slovak, and Flea began to create their own music after finding inspiration in a punk- funk fusion band called Defunkt. The band had only one song, titled "Out in L.
Following the group's first show at The Rhythm Lounge, the owner of the bar asked them to return, but with two songs instead of one. After several more shows, and the addition of several songs to their repertoire, the band's name was changed to Red Hot Chili Peppers. Gill and Sherman clashed with Kiedis and Flea; they continuously argued over music style, sound, and the album's production.
Funk musician George Clinton was hired to produce the band's second album, Freaky Styley , as Slovak returned on guitar. The strong chemistry between Clinton and the Chili Peppers was felt instantly. Freaky Styley was released in August It received only a bit more attention than The Red Hot Chili Peppers with roughly 75, copies sold by year's end.
Flea, Slovak and Kiedis especially were involved in heavy drug use and their relationships became strained. Flea recalled that "it began to seem ugly to me and not fun; our communication was not healthy". Both Kiedis and Slovak struggled with debilitating heroin addictions, which grew worse as the band was preparing to record The Uplift Mofo Party Plan.
Due to his addiction, Kiedis lacked the motivation to contribute to the band musically, and appeared at rehearsal "literally asleep". During that time, the band won the LA Weekly Band of the Year award, which prompted Kiedis to quit using heroin cold turkey. He visited his mother in Michigan for guidance, who drove him to drug rehabilitation immediately after picking him up from the airport upon seeing his unhealthy appearance.
He moved in with his mother after twenty days at the clinic, a time which marked the first time he was completely abstinent from drugs since he was eleven years old. After fifty days of sobriety, Kiedis decided to take drugs again as a one-time attempt to celebrate his new music, which led to his resumed addiction. The recording process for the album became difficult as Kiedis would often disappear to seek drugs.
After the international tour in support of Uplift , Slovak died of a heroin overdose in Following Slovak's death, Kiedis fled to a small fishing village in Mexico and did not attend his funeral, considering the situation to be surreal and dreamlike. Kiedis and Flea decided to continue making music, hoping to continue what Slovak "helped build". Following Slovak's death, Kiedis and Flea took some time to collect themselves, but decided to keep the band together.
Peligro were added to replace Slovak and Irons. McKnight soon began to create tension within the group, as his style did not mesh with the rest of the band. Peligro introduced Frusciante to Flea, and the three jammed together on several occasions. Peligro was fired in November and through auditions, the Chili Peppers brought in drummer Chad Smith as his replacement shortly after.
The Chili Peppers entered the studio, and completed recording of their fourth album, Mother's Milk , in early This led to the end of his two-year relationship with Ione Skye in December "I had managed to stay sober by not ingesting drugs, so my body had healed from all that torturous activity, but my mind still wasn't healthy enough to work out all the problems that come up in a relationship.
He was ordered to pay a fine on both counts. The band sought to record their next album Blood Sugar Sex Magik in an unconventional setting, believing it would enhance their creative output.
The band's producer Rick Rubin suggested the mansion magician Harry Houdini once lived in, to which they agreed.
A crew was hired to set up a recording studio and other equipment required for production in the house. The band decided that they would remain inside the mansion for the duration of recording, though Smith, convinced the location was haunted, refused to stay. Kiedis was apprehensive because he believed the lyrics to be "too soft" and unlike the band's style.
After singing the verse to Frusciante, they began structuring the song the next day. When Blood Sugar Sex Magik was released on September 24, , it received an overwhelmingly positive critical response. The album peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot , and went on to sell over seven million copies in the U.
The album's ensuing tour was critically acclaimed—the Chili Peppers commonly performed shows with over twenty thousand in attendance. The band hired guitarist Arik Marshall to complete the remaining tour dates. The band appeared live on the Grammy's ceremony with George Clinton's P-Funk collective and many others, performing a medley that included " Give It Away ". Months went by, and only small amounts of material were written leading Chad Smith to publicly announce that Kiedis was suffering from writer's block something Kiedis denied.
The rest of the recording was completed within the next month and their sixth album One Hot Minute was released in September , featuring the band's new guitarist Dave Navarro. The tour to support the album was also met with mixed results. Chad Smith broke his arm prior to the launch of the U. Near the tour's end, Kiedis was involved in a motorcycle accident which left him with a broken arm.
The tour ended with the band's final set being cut short due to a massive typhoon. The band regrouped in to begin writing for their seventh studio album; however, Navarro was now battling his own drug problems. This caused major tension between Kiedis and Navarro, who was fired from the band in early Flea informed Kiedis that he felt the only way the band could possibly continue is if Frusciante re-joined the band. In the years following Frusciante's departure from the Chili Peppers, he had developed a vicious addiction to both heroin and cocaine that left him in poverty and near death.
Within the week, and for the first time in six years, the foursome gathered to play and jump-started the newly reunited Red Hot Chili Peppers. Immediately following the release of Californication , the band embarked on a world tour to support the record, beginning in the United States. To culminate the US leg of their tour, the Chili Peppers were asked to close Woodstock '99 , which became infamous for the violence it resulted in.
It wasn't symbolic of peace and love, but of greed and cashing in We woke up to papers and radio stations vilifying us for playing 'Fire'. The writing and formation of By the Way began immediately following the culmination of Californication's world tour, in the Spring of As with Californication , much of the creation took place in the band members' homes, and other locations of practice, such as a recording studio stage.
John was back to himself and brimming with confidence. There was very little tension, very little anxiety, very little weirdness going on and every day we showed up to this funky room in the Valley, and everyone felt more comfortable than ever bringing in their ideas.
Following a hugely successful world tour to support Stadium Arcadium , the band decided to take an extended year long break from music in According to Kiedis, there was a collective decision "not [to] do anything Red Hot Chili Peppers-related for a minimum of one year. We were all emotionally and mentally zapped at the end of that run.
Josh Klinghoffer , a touring guitarist for the Chili Peppers and often collaborator with Frusciante was hired as his replacement. Kiedis said it was very emotional and the first person he told was his father, who cried when hearing the news. Kiedis has been battling through foot injuries since when he injured his foot onstage and finally was able to have surgery during a break in the band's tour in January During the surgery, Kiedis had a crushed sesamoid bone removed and a detached flexor tendon repaired.
The band was able to resume their tour and kicked off the U. Kiedis' mother, Peggy Noble Idema, commented on her son receiving the award by saying "This really makes me proud. Both my parents and Grandpa Idema were huge Gershwin fans. I grew up with their music. On May 14, , the band were forced to cancel their headlining slot at the annual KROQ Weenie Roast , as Kiedis was rushed to the hospital prior to the band appearing on stage.
During a break in filming of The Late Late Show with James Corden carpool karaoke segment which aired on June 14, and featured the band singing karaoke to their music with the host while driving through Los Angeles,  Kiedis performed emergency CPR on a baby. So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles came out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place, the ambulance showed up and I handed the baby over, who was now breathing and fine, and we went back to Carpool Karaoke.
