- For Him
Their career and individual lives have been eventful to say the least. Just as the world was warming up to the Chili Peppers with their album Freaky Styley, tragedy struck when Slovak died from a heroin overdose on 25 June 1988. The band went onto enormous international success with singles such as ‘Give It Away‘ and ‘Under the Bridge’. But all was not well in the Chili Peppers' camp. Like his predecessor, Frusciante had become addicted to hard drugs, and abruptly left the band mid-tour in early 1992. Rumours circulated that the guitarist was homeless, penniless and sickly with a death-defying drug habit. After checking himself into rehab and putting his demons behind him, Frusciante emerged once again refocused and re-energized, and promptly accepted an invitation to rejoin the Peppers once more. The rest - as they say - is history, with the release of such commercially successful and critically acclaimed albums as Californication and By the Way. The band's ground-breaking live performances, enormous struggles with drugs, wild partying and changing line-up is all here, in the ultimate authorized celebration of the world's most exciting and successful band.
