"Many interim guitarists have had brief runs with the Chili Peppers, but four in particular have made strong musical statements within the band. The group forged their pioneering funk-punk style first with six-stringer Hillel Slovak. Following Slovak’s tragic drug overdose in 1988, John Frusciante entered for a four-year run. In the wake of Frusciante’s departure in 1992, former Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro signed on for one album, 1995’s One Hot Minute. Frusciante rejoined for 1999’s Californication. Eight years later he again departed, giving way to current Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer."The original text was retrieve from Gibson.
