Duran Duran Confirm Frusciante Collaboration

(Classic Rock) Former Red Hot Chilli Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is working with Duran Duran on their new album, the 80s pop icons confirmed. The well-travelled axeman - who has also been a member of The Mars Volta and this year formed supergroup Kimono Kult with Omar Rodriguez Lopez - is adding guitar to tracks on the upcoming Duran Duran record from his home in California.

Simon Le Bon and co released a statement confirming Frusciante's involvement after rumours began circulating that he was on board, although it seems he won't be a part of the touring line-up.

The statement, attributed to "Simon, John, Nick and Roger," reads: "We were holding this exciting news because we were hoping to give you full details when we announced, but as word has leaked out, catching us rather off guard, we wanted to confirmů yes it's true, the extraordinarily talented John Frusciante has indeed been doing some work from his home base in California on our new album."

They had more to say including how far his involvement with the group goes here.
