RHCP’s New Guitarist
While news of John Frusciante’s departure is old news to most, the move is still relatively new to semi-hip wannabe music enthusiasts such as myself. It is a move made over a year and a half ago but many fans may have been unaware since the band hasn’t released an album in a few years. After all the smoke settled following the lineup struggles occurring within the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Josh Klinghoffer had been officially announced as the new lead guitarist who will be showcasing his abilities on I’m With You which will be released August 30th. He already had a history of performing with the band, serving as a stand-in guitarist during the final leg of their Stadium Arcadium tour back in 2007. From the sound of RHCP’s recently released single, The Adventures of Raindance Maggie, Josh is quite different yet distinct from the former guitarist and will bring a new sound to an ever evolving band.
