Chili Peppers Make an ‘Hoffer

New guitarist, new start for rock vets.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have told Q that new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer has revitalised the band. “It’s been like starting over again,” says frontman Anthony Kiedis (pictured). Klinghoffer was recruited 18 months ago to replace John Frusciante and makes his recorded debut on new album I’m With You. Produced by Rick Rubin and with cover art from Damien Hurst, the album mixes their trademark funk sound with classic rock inflections. “It was a big thing for us to decide to continue without John, “acknowledged Flea. “But we came back really enthusiastic and wrote a shit-load of stuff. I’m excited about the whole deal.”

I’m With You is out August 29
