Red Hot Chili Peppers Honoured With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

April 4, 2022

How could the Red Hot Chili Peppers not already have a star on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame? That’s the real question. Last Thursday, March 31, the band were honoured with a star at a ceremony held at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard, adjacent to Amoeba Records. As a longtime fan, about time.

The band’s star was unveiled by George Clinton, who produced the band’s 1985 record “Freaky Styley”. Also on hand were actor Woody Harrelson, musician Bob Forrest and Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce chairwoman Nicole Mihalka.

Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis said, “I’m pretty sure that I have inadvertently vomited on Hollywood Walk Of Fame stars in my lifetime. I’ve certainly slept on top of Hollywood Boulevard Walk Of Fame stars in my lifetime. I’ve trod upon them not as a tourist but as a person running from the authorities or possibly running from somebody that I owed money to.”

Meanwhile, the Chili Peppers released their new album “Unlimited Love” on April 1. It’s the first new album with guitarist John Frusciante since 2006’s “Stadium Arcadium” and was produced by Rick Rubin (who’s worked with the band on “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” (1991), “Californication” (1999), “By The Way” (2002) and “Stadium Arcadium” (2006).

What’s the best Chili Peppers album, and why is it Blood Sugar Sex Magik?
