Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer would be considered "the new guy" in the band, but he still got to experience a milestone with the group earlier this year when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For the guitarist though, he's not sure what it all means at this point.
The second day of the 2012 Lollapalooza festival kicked off yesterday, only to be interrupted by Mother Nature by mid-afternoon. With the threat of thunderstorms looming, all ticket holders and performers were evacuated from Grant Park in Chicago, Ill.
Red Hot Chili Peppers took the stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Friday (May 4) for the first of two sold out shows, and the band took care to dedicate the show to Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who tragically passed away mere miles away in his native New York earlier that day after a three-year bout with cancer.
In keeping with the theme of their recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to release an EP that will feature a collection of cover songs honoring previous Hall of Fame inductees. The song selections were based on artists who have influenced the Chili Peppers throughout their career and run the gamut of styles from the Ramones to the Beach Boys.
It’s a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tradition to have a jam session with inductees new and old at the end of the ceremony. This year was no different: After the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ own three-song set late Saturday night, frontman Anthony Kiedis encouraged others to join them onstage.
Red Hot Chili Peppers were the very last act inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, late Saturday night – and with the ceremony creeping close to the five-hour mark, many in attendance had already split.
A couple of days ago, we told you rumor had it that the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup would feature Red Hot Chili Peppers and Black Sabbath — and now we can confirm that the rumors were right on the money. This year’s list of acts has been unveiled, and it’s a doozy.
