lknight1 In 2009 John Frusciante had quit the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He said he wanted to focus on his solo career and didn't want to be in the band anymore. This time around he had left on good terms instead of like in 1992 when he quit the band on bad terms. After debating on if to continue or not they had all decided they wanted to keep going on and making music. They called a guy by the name of Josh Klinghoffer who was a friend and had toured with them during Stadium Arcadium. After asking if he would like to join the band he agreed and the new band pictured below was formed. Josh Klinghoffer is a 35 year old guitarist who has worked with John Frusciante since 2003. He is 17 years younger than Chad, Anthony, and Flea who are all 52 years old. They got to working on the new album and came up with some amazing songs including the single "Adventures of Raindance Maggie". In the mix also included "Look Around" "Ethiopia" "Factory of Faith" and "Brendan's Death Song". The approach they wanted to take was simply working with Josh Klinghoffer for one year. Seeing how he would fit in with the style of the band. Thus in 2011 the tenth studio album titled "I'm With You" was made. The style on I'm With You is different because they add more piano and other instruments in the mix of this work. After the release they began a world tour and they say it's the most fun they have had touring since "Uplift Mofo Party Plan" with Hillel Slovak in 1987. This tour went from 2011-2014 all over the world. In 2012 they headlined major music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza! In 2012 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jack Sherman (1984 debut) and Dave Navarro (1995 One hot minute) were not inducted.
Facts:
1. Josh Klinghoffer is the one who came up with the title "I'm With you" a day before the album was supposed to be finished.
2. The song "Brendans death song" is about their good friend Brendan Mullen who was one of their first supporters in the early years who had died during the making of this album.
3. John Frusciante did not show up to the Rock and Roll hall of fame induction. However, Flea and Anthony both mentioned him in their speeches.

happyappalachy I'm not big on #IGing my gifts, but I really love this. Probably because I am such a fan. I've spent half my life loving the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Even if I fall away for a while, something always brings me back. 4h
