After a decade apart, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante reunites with Flea

Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante has reunited with his ex-bandmate Flea for the first public appearance in over a decade.

Since announcing the decision to leave  Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2009, Frusciante remained under the radar and purposely kept himself out of the public eye. The extent of which epitomised when the guitarist decided to avoid the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

Having put out a series of instrumental and experimental solo releases, Frusciante’s output has been much more relaxed since leaving the band for the second time.

With fans not having seen him with the rest of the band for 11 years, the guitarist was spotted enjoying a reunion with his former bandmate Flea over the weekend when they appeared in LA during a boxing match.
