Red Hot Chili Peppers biography
The beginnings of Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Group's members met at high school: Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Hillel Slovak. They formed the group in 1983 at the end of high school. That year, they signed with the EMI label. Unfortunately, this blend of rap-funk did not seduce.
Unfortunately, this blend of rap-funk did not seduce. The second album, "Freaky Styley", produced by George Clinton, changed the group's core musical register a little by focusing on a more melodious and funky sound. There was a succession of drummers until the arrival in the late 80s of Chad Smith, considered one of the best drummers of all time. In the 1990s, Red Hot Chili Peppers signed for Warner.
The death of Hillel, a turning point for the group
The group unfortunately experienced a difficult period in the 80s. Kiedis and Hillel were addicted to drugs and unfortunately this proved to be a fatal addiction for Hillel in 1988. Greatly affected by his death, Kiedis then questioned his lifestyle and finally stopped taking drugs. The album, "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", produced by Rick Rubin, consecrated the group's success as it sold over 12 million copies worldwide. One of the flagship songs of this album was "Under The Bridge". Today, "Californication" is still their best selling album, with over 16 million copies sold.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have, to date, made 10 studio albums, the last of which, "I'm with you", was released in 2011.
