Chili Peppers Make Live Debut With New Guitarist
Red Hot Chili Peppers played their first show with new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer at a special gala to honour Neil Young.
The band performed the Young song A Man Needs A Maid at the charity event, MusiCares Person Of The Year, which happened on January 29.
This featured a stellar list of participants, including John Mellencamp, Stephen Stills, Jackson Browne, plus an all-star jam on the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young classic Helpless, featuring Sir Elton John, Leon Russell, T Bone Burnett, Neko Case and Sheryl Crow.
There was also an apparently stirring rendition of Human Highway from Crosby, Stills & Nash.
Mind you, tickets for the event weren’t cheap. They cost $1,250 per plate. We’d have stuck to using our fingers and eaten off the tablecloth!
Still, all proceeds did go to Musicians In Need.
