Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante will not be in attendance when the band is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month.
According to drummer Chad Smith, Frusciante, who left the band for the second time back in 2009, didn't feel comfortable being involved, and the band "totally respect[s]" his decision.
"It was all good," Smith told Billboard. "[John]'s the kind of guy, I think, that once he's finished with something he's just on to the next phase of his life. The Chili Peppers are not really on his radar right now."
Although Frusciante won't be there, he will be inducted into the Rock Hall with the Peppers. The band, with new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, will likely perform at the event.
