Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Me, Myself, and I
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a Californian rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1983.
The current band members are:
Anthony Kiedis - Vocals
Michael "Flea" Balzary - Bass
John Frusciante - Guitar
Chad Smith - Drums
Red Hot Chili Peppers (originally Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem) were formed after a one time performance in 1983 by Fairfax High School students Michael "Flea" Balzary, Jack Irons, Anthony Kiedis, and Hillel Slovak. Later in that year, they secured a record deal with EMI.
Even though they have experienced numerous line-up changes and personal problems, the band has successfully created a sound that combines funk, punk, rap, pop rock, Neo - psychedelia and heavy metal.
Since 1984, they have made nine studio albums which have sold over 60 million copies worldwide. They also hold records for most #1 modern rock hits with nine, and most weeks spent at the top of the charts, with 72.

Flea's bass style is an amalgamation of funk and blues, borrowing from artists such as Bootsy Collins of Parliament-Funkadelic and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin. The groove-heavy, low-tuned melodies, composed through either normal finger style or slapping, have contributed to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' signature style. While Flea's slap bass style was prominent in earlier albums, later albums (post "Blood Sugar Sex Magik") have more melodic basslines.
The guitar styles of the guitarists that have recorded albums with the group share common traits, featuring a sharp, distorted sound with strong range. Replacement players appear to have tried to stay as close as possible to original guitarist Hillel Slovak's style with its heavy blues and funk elements. However, Dave Navarro focused on a style rooted in heavy metal, progressive, and psychedelic rock. Current guitarist John Frusciante brought a more melodic, textured, and deep sound.
Kiedis provides a range of vocal styles for RHCP songs, with his style of rapping and spoken verse (the latter being the primary characteristic of his vocals up to Blood Sugar Sex Magik) complemented with more traditional vocals have helped the band maintain a relatively consistent style.
