On Saturday April 14th will be remembered as one of the most memorable days for Red Hot Chili Peppers as they were included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland’s Public Auditorium before a crowd of seven thousand fans.
Despite the great expectations, John Frusciante ultimately did not attend the event.
Before the ceremony, gave a press conference along with former drummer Jack Irons and Cliff Martinez. Where lived a great time by Anthony, who fondly recalled to Hillel Slovak. The other members were also held to answer questions from reporters. Here the interview:
During the ceremony, the band was introduced by Chris Rock, who recalled the first time I saw them play in Philadelphia, also referred to influences, revealing once again his great admiration for them. The Chili took the stage clearly excited, especially Flea.
John Frusciante was appointed at all times with great affection.
After the speech, the band gave a performance of three themes:
– By The Way
– The Adventures of Maggie Rain Dance
– Give It Away (com Jack Irons and Cliff Martinez)
