Red Hot Chili Peppers Reuniting With Guitarist John Frusciante

Famed guitarist John Frusciante has rejoined the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the band announced via Instagram on Sunday. "We are deeply grateful for our time with him, and the countless gifts he shared with us", the post read.

Frusciante first joined Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1988 following the death of founding guitarist Hillel Slovak, and played on 1989's Mother's Milk and 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik before leaving the band in 1992.

Longtime guitarist John Frusciante is back with the band.

However, following a few more albums with the band, Frusciante again announced his departure from the band in 2009, this time to focus on his solo career.
