Six-time Grammy Award winners, alternative rock band “Red Hot Chili Peppers” finally get their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The group ‘Californication’ will receive this honor during an unveiling ceremony which will take place on Thursday, March 31 at 11:30 am.
Their star, which is the 2,717th on the Walk of Fame, will be placed in the second row, at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard. This is adjacent to Amoeba Records to the south and their star will be next to TV producer Harry Freidman’s Walk of Fame star. To the west is the star of Pat Sajack and to the east is that of Jack Paar.
The unveiling will be done by George Clinton (who produced their 1985 album, “Freaky Styley”) along with Bob Forrest, Woody Harrelson and host Nicole Mihalka.
Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez told ‘Variety’, “The boys from our hometown of Hollywood are finally coming to get their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” She further added, “We’ve been waiting for them to break away from their busy schedules to dedicate their star, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to our Walk of Fame family.”
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold over 100 million records since forming the group in 1983. Their next album, “Unlimited Love,” will be released on April 1. After the release of the album, the rockers will go on a world tour. This is the band’s first tour since 2016-2017 which accompanied the release of their previous album, ‘The Getaway’.
“Unlimited Love” marks the return of band member John Frusciante who joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1988 and was part of several hit albums including “Blood Sugar Sex Magik”, “Californication”, “Mother’s Milk” and their double from 2006 LP ‘Stadium Arcadium’.
For the last twenty years the band was with Q Prime but last year they changed direction and signed Guy Oseary, the founder of Maverick.
