Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante made a rare public appearance over the weekend of July 28th, being seen with current Chili Peppers member Flea at a boxing event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It marked the first time the two had been photographed together in 11 years. Frusciante even skipped out on the band's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
Anthony Kiedis remarked in 2016 that he misses Frusciante. Josh Klinghoffer, who was a touring member of the band starting in 2007, became an official member of the band after Frusciante's departure in '09. With Klinghoffer, RHCP has released two albums, I'm With You and The Getaway, both moderate successes, and are planning on working on their 12th studio album at the tail end of 2018.
Frusciante was asked earlier this year if he would ever consider rejoining the band, to which he replied that he wouldn't rule it out sometime in the distance future. He has released five solo records since leaving the Chili Peppers but has not performed in a live setting.
