Red Hot Chili Peppers' Frusciante Skipping Rock Hall Induction
The Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith tells Billboard.com that former members Jack Irons and Cliff Martinez will be attending the induction ceremony, but former guitarist John Frusciante will not be there.
"[Frusciante] didn't feel comfortable coming, which we totally respect," Smith told Billboard.com . "We asked him... He said, 'I'm just not really comfortable with that, but good luck and thanks for inviting me.' It was all good. 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 Chili Peppers are not really on his radar right now." And could it be that they are already working on a new album?
