Chip‘ offers quality content on social networks since The Red Hot Chili Peppers have launched their tour earlier this month. He shared everything book recommendations to the pictures of John Frusciante shredding on guitarand now he’s proving why he’s the band’s bassist and not their lead singer.
In his latest Instagram video, a shirtless, bespectacled smart moaned the words to Styx“Come Sail Away” in a nasal tone while finishing the last bites of food on his plate. Although the clip was supposed to be funny (he captioned it “Thank you, thank you”), a fellow musician called him out for having real talent.
“See, I know you are playing, but the pitch is good!!” Jewel commented on the post. “You can sing!”
See Flea’s post below.
RHCP are currently on their first tour with Frusciante in 15 years. Since reuniting with the band in 2019, Frusciante has discussed both his decision to quit (again) in 2009 and his decision to return 10 years later. chip too recalled the tearful conversation which led to his latest comeback.
The former bandmates were having dinner with loved ones, and for a moment alone, Flea made her feelings known. “I was just like, ‘Man, just from my heart, I miss playing with you,'” he divulged, revealing that tears started to fill his eyes after the words left his mouth. . “I didn’t say that for him, because I wanted to respect what he wanted to do. He was very respectful of what we were doing, although I imagined it wasn’t always easy for him.
But Frusciante felt the same, and her eyes started to fill with tears too. “He wrote back to me saying, ‘I really miss playing with you too,'” Flea said.
Flea spoke to vocalist Anthony Kiedis about the interaction and they made the difficult decision to replace the then-guitarist. Josh Klinghofer with Frusciante.
“Through a bit of cosmic meditation, we got to a place where we really had no choice,” Kiedis explained. “It was heartbreaking to say goodbye to Josh, but it was also mind-opening to see John again.”
