When the Red Hot Chili Peppers release their tenth album this summer, it will be the first for the veteran band’s newest member, Josh Klinghoffer.  The guitarist joined the band in 2009 after John Frusciante left.  But even with John’s departure, frontman Anthony Kiedis tells “Rolling Stone” that he and bassist Flea knew they wanted the band to go on.  Kiedis says they tried to make sure the new guitarist could uphold the Chili Peppers’ history.  Eventually, they decided that Klinghoffer was the “perfect solution.”  In addition to touring with the band on its last tour, Josh is a friend of Frusciante’s and a frequent collaborator on the guitarist’s solo work.

Josh says there was no need to “adjust” to the band because he had admired them and had been friends with them for years.  Klinghoffer will make his Red Hot Chili Peppers record debut when “I’m With You” hits stores August 30th.
