    John Frusciante has rejoined the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers announce that we are parting ways with our guitarist of the past ten years, Josh Klinghoffer. Josh is a beautiful musician who we respect and love. We are deeply grateful for our time with him, and the countless gifts he shared with us.

    We also announce, with great excitement and full hearts, that John Frusciante is rejoining our group. Thank you.

    Echoing this. They were definitely at their best with him in the band.

    Everyone knows how great of a guitarist he is, but he’s so underrated in regard to his vocal work. His falsetto and backup vocals on the By The Way and Stadium Arcadium albums really add some texture to the songs. Easily my two favorite albums by them and I think a lot of it has to do with how they utilized John on them.

    Great point. The Californication B-side Quixoticelixer has some of his best back up vox on it too. And don't forget Save the Population!
