When they reunited for their 12th album, the punk-funk rockers tried to age gracefully after a youth full of sex and drugs. So why did Anthony Kiedis turn down the call after the tough question?
I f there is any doubt how massive the Red Hot Chili pepper is still, the month they got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in the very streets they used to stalk as teenage punks. Here in Los Angeles, they are everywhere. In a bodega on Melrose Avenue, in the middle of lingerie shops and lots of trash, the city’s unofficial theme song comes out of the speakers: “The first unicorn / Hardcore soft porn / Dream of California-i-cay-tioooon”. I half expected Flea and Anthony Kiedis to wander in, long-haired and bare-chested; that young man who ended up in one of the most enduring bands in the world.
I Cut Myself
It’s not enough meet-cute I had imagined, then, when I finally see people in pixellated flesh in separate Zooms and one phone call: drummer Chad Smith in the front office, bassist Flea in the front theater and frontman Kiedis calling from. the warehouse where the band rehearsed for the stadium tour. There is a new album, Unlimited Love, which is the 12th – significant because it is the first time in nearly twenty with guitarist John Frusciante back in the fold, but also because the band has survived for 39 years without resorting to separation and reunion. “I thought we would implode at some point, like most bands do,” says Smith.
They have gone fair, what with the drug hell and lineup changes. The last time this lineup was together was in the mid-00s. Californication – ground zero in 1999, the most obsolete cassette – has sold 15m, the follow-up By the Way included a huge single, and 2006’s second album, Stadium Arcadium, was a US number 1. Critics say it’s the best. they have never done or failed to harmonize both sides: edgy funk-rap mavericks and radio-friendly pop-rockers. Frusciante then quietly left. Although for less dramatic reasons than the first, in 1992, when he took too much heroin, his teeth fell out.

The guitarist had joined the band when he was 18, “and when he was 21, we went from this little club band to Under the Bridge,” Smith said. “That’s a lot.” Frusciante’s second outing was different. “There is no hostility. My point is that they want to do it on their own, where you don’t have to compromise and [deal with] photos and interviews. Indeed, he seems to have rejoined on the condition that he does not have to do much of the latter, and is not available for this piece. Smith never thought he would return: “I thought that ship had sailed.”

But at the end of 2019, Flea and Frusciante started jamming together. “I can’t think of another musical connection I’ve seen that’s so strong,” says longtime producer Rick Rubin, who returns on Unlimited Love. There was only one problem: Chilis had guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who had replaced Frusciante in 2009. Klinghoffer got a text from Flea, calling him at his house. When he arrived, the treasure was waiting in the backyard, ready to deliver the bad news: he was out. He later told Rolling Stone that “you feel dead”.
“Flea was like: ‘We’re coming back John. We love you, but we feel like there’s unfinished business,'” Smith said of the meeting. “It’s very difficult. Josh sat there, the rug pulled out from under him. There was a pause of about 15 seconds. Then he turned to us and said: ‘I like you very much.’ What a class act. There was a silver lining for the fired guitarist: eight days later, Eddie Vedder called Klinghoffer and asked him to join Pearl Jam’s touring band.
Frusciante’s return to the fold was, in some ways, a risk. The last solo release he did was rotten and he wasn’t sure if he could still write rock. But the rest of the band were looking to start again. “We’re getting ready to set another record and we’re not sure,” Smith said. For 2016’s The Getaway, he swapped Rubin, who had overseen his previous six albums, for Danger Mouse and experimented freely with disco. But in the next six years, Chile seems to have lost a bit. “It was hard to get us all on the same page and trusting each other,” Flea said.
As soon as they get stuck again, however, ideas flow freely. “Every fear of losing the muse has been proven so far to be irrational,” Kiedis said. “We have a significant change in chemistry by taking John back.” No sooner had they reunited than the pandemic struck – but for the recently fired Chilis, it was a blessing in disguise. They stuck for a month, on a diet of old blues, rock’n’roll and New York Dolls, and came to Rubin’s studio with more than 100 songs. “We have a reputation as a bunch of crazy people, but we take our music very seriously,” added Flea.

Ah yes, that reputation. A 2004 NME profile once wagered: “If you need a good reason to break the band forever” it’s down to the beginning of “moronic” songs such as Mommy Where’s Daddy – about incest – and Special Secret Song Inside (Party On Your Pussy) – go character. For some disdainful critics, the band has never shaken off that image: puerile, sleazy, stupid. Or, as Smith put it: “Young Chad, in the early days of the Chili Peppers, would drink all your booze, do all your drugs. I’d be a jerk with your girlfriend and not give a damn.”
So it’s interesting that the first three albums – his eponymous debut in 1984, the George Clinton-produced Freaky Styley in 1985 and Mofo’s Uplift Party Plan in 1987 – were among the material Frusciante asked to play when he found his feet again. “Songs we haven’t played in a while,” Smith said. “My thoughts are: John wants to reconnect with the band he loves.”
For Kiedis, it’s about “going back to basics – let’s play music together without expectations”. But he admits that going back to those days “was a bit awkward. It felt like going back and I had grown to a new place. But I saw the value in the training, because it was a time when there was nothing but fun and rude, rude , impudence – all these characteristics at the age of 20.
Unlimited Love has several songs that use this unbridled attitude; This song tends to be heavier, while the album is also airier and wistful. One track is called, frankly, The Great Apes. On One Way Traffic, meanwhile, Kiedis cried: “When did life become a caution?” – although he is not up to develop it now. “I don’t know about this self-analysis,” he argued. “Maybe I’m referring to the world, maybe it’s a part of me.” It is a shame that it will not be dug deeper because there are themes of aging and alienation, the USA, the eternal muse, California, and – despite the soft innuendos of today – love and sex, which are compelling to the long imagination of the three musicians. the owner
