STUNNED BY DRE
After taking a break from the road, recording and dealing with the defection of long time guitarist John Frusciante, The Red Hot Chili Peppers sat down with Rolling Stone magazine to share all the deets on new music, life, new members and the band today.
Lead singer Anthony Kiedis was less concerned about their ability to carry on without Frusciante. “I never had the feeling we were done,” he says. “Flea’s biggest concern, that he shared with me, was that he didn’t want to continue if it wasn’t as good as it had ever been, at it’s best: ‘We’ve accomplished too much to do anything half-assed.”
