The band took to social media to drop the bomshell news. "The Red Hot Chili Peppers announce that we are parting ways with our guitarist of the past ten years, Josh Kliffhonger," the post reads. There seems to be no bad blood and animosity amongst them and the band even described Josh as "a beautiful musician who we respect and love."

But hold it right there, RHCP pulled another shocker as they announced the return of their former guitarist John Frusciante who left the band in 2009. "We also announce, with great excitement and full hearts, that John Frusciante is rejoining our group." CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY, ROCK FANS!
