Red Hot Chili Peppers On Why One Hot Minute Is ‘Bastard’ Album


Red Hot Chili Peppers discussed their lone LP with Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro, 1995’s One Hot Minute, in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

“When we made the last record with [Josh Klinghoffer], we had never even played a show with him,” says Flea. “We didn’t really know him. Now, after five years on the road and a million arguments, and telling each other that we love each other, we’ve really established our own language.”

On the road, Klinghoffer has encouraged the band to acknowledge long-forgotten corners of its catalog, including the 1995 funky pop hit “Aeroplane,” from its lone LP with Dave Navarro on guitar. “We also worked up ‘My Friends’ from that bastard album,” says Smith. “John [Frusciante] just never felt connected to that record. Josh is like, ‘I don’t care, man. I like it.'”
