Red Hot Chili Peppers, a funk rock band from Los Angeles, was trying to gain commercial success for years. Finally, the popularity came to them in the 1990s, in spite of the constantly changing members, drug problems and accusations of being too much beyond the line.
The core of the group are Anthony Kiedis and Michael ‘Flea’ Balzary born in Australia. They met each other in high school in the late 1970s. By that time, Flea has already tried to play in a few Los Angeles punk bands before they started their group with Kiedis. Together with Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons, they toured the LA roundabouts looking for success. In that period, Anthony and Hillel got hooked on heroin, and Slovak left the group in 1984. His place was taken by Jack Sherman. The same year, RHCP signed their first contract and issued their debut self-named album by the end of the year. But this was hardly noticed by both critics and fans. In 1985, Slovak came back, and together they created a new CD that was more of a funky style. The album again was not selling well, while Red Hot Chily Peppers was getting the reputation of an underground band because of their stage behavior. They were seen completely naked a few times, besides, the members even got arrested for sexual harassment towards female fans.
The next 1987 album again did not make the group more popular, and in 1988, Hillel Slovak left it again because of his never ending drug problem. He died of heroin overdose the same year. Irons, his good friend, could not overcome his loss and came to a decision to make a leave. He was substituted by Chad Smith. John Frusciante came instead of the late guitarist.
The members became more stable, and in 1989, Red Hot Chili Peppers release their new album that soon becomes gold and brings them to the world stage. The following album comes in 1991. Their CDs are now sold in million copies, and the singles are rotated on the radio and MTV. The Lollapalooza in 1992 become a sweet cherry on top of their fame.
During the 1993 Red Hot Chili Peppers concert tour, John Frusciante leaves the group. The official version says that he couldn’t cope with the tough Red Hot Chili Peppers events schedule. But the rumors say that his leaving also happened due to drug problems. Despite this, he made a good solo career a few years later, and as for the group, John was substituted by Dave Navarro. The new group presented themselves to the public at Woodstock 1994, where they came on to the stage with light bulbs on their heads.
