Red Hot Chili Peppers (sort of) confirmed that Josh Klinghoffer will replace the newly departed John Frusciante as their new Guitarist. The website stadium-arcadium.com is backing up a tweet that former Chili Guitarist Dave Navarro posted regarding the news.
“… Oh, and I’m NOT working with RHCP. They are working with an amazing talent, Josh Klinghoffer. I wish them love and the very best!” wrote Navarro (via @davenavarro6767 on Twitter).
No more information has been provided about the announcement and little is known about Klinghoffer other than he has been a studio and touring guitarists for artists and bands such as Beck, Gnarls Barkley, PJ Harvey, and has also played on one of the RHCP’s albums in the past.
No tour dates have been posted. We’ll keep you posted.
