** After Frusciante left for the first time, Zander Schloss of Circle Jerks was called in to be his replacement, but again, he lacked chemistry with the band, and so an entire leg of the tour was cancelled (however, some still consider his four days with the band an official tenure - For a long time, he was listed as a full member at {{TheOtherWiki}}.

** Fans have began to warm up to "One Hot Minute", realising that the album does contain many genuinely good songs and recognize the fact that not only did Navarro help the band mature and develop their sound to the point that it's easy to spot his influece on later albums, but that there is the very real possibility that the Chili Peppers wouldn't today without him. The One Hot Minute era was a very stressful time for everyone involved and the band considers it a low point in their career, it is very likely that the Chili Peppers would have split up had Dave not stepped in at the right moment.

*** This has started to change. As of 2016 the band have been incorperating more older songs and songs from One Hot Minute into their setlists.



* Josh has stated that he loves music and doesn't care about fame or success, although he doesn't resent them the way Frusciante did.



** Dave Navarro is currently hosting the reality show "Ink Masters".
** Flea voiced Donnie on "The Wild Thornberrys"
** Anthony Kiedis has had a few acting jobs too, most notably a short appearance in the film "Point Break".
** Josh has performed as a touring musician for Gnarles Barkley and sings lead vocals for his band Dot Hacker.
** Josh has appeared alongside Christina Aguilera in a 2011 World Hunger Relief PSA, playing an acoustic version of Aguilera's song "beautiful".



** Many fans viewed ''By The Way'' as a complete sellout in its day. Since the band returned to their funkier sound for ''Stadium Arcadium'', a lot of fans went back to ''By The Way'' and found it was far better than they expected.

** However, probably one of the biggest "Could Have Beens" is the fact that before they recruited Jesse Tobias, {{Buckethead}} auditioned without even knowing any of the band's songs. Despite that, the band still applauded "raucously" after he finished playing, but he was passed over because the band was looking for someone who could "kick a groove."

* TheOtherDarrin: Four drummers and eight guitarists have been official members of the band. While every drummer recorded with the band at least once (Cliff Martinez played on the first two albums, Jack Irons on their 1983 demo and on their third album, and [[Music/DeadKennedys D.H. Peligro]] recorded a song called "Blues For Meister". Additionally, he received writing credits on several Blood Sugar Sex Magick songs), some of the guitarists weren't so lucky. Jack Irons has averted this by becoming famous with PearlJam.

Added DiffLines:

** The band's second, barely started Dave Navarro album 'Circle Of The Noose', was called off because John Frusciante wanted to return to the band, and they had stylistic differences with Dave. The title track and a jam session eventually leaked, but it is likely the band would have gone off in a more psychedelic direction. Both Flea and Dave have spoken fondly of 'Circle Of The Noose' previously, and both consequently were happy when it leaked.
** The band debuted "Bunker Hill" whilst performing live in 1998, and performed it several times before dropping it. At this point it was known by the longer title of "These Are Not My Dreams Of Bunker Hill". It was an important song for much of the Californication sessions, being rejected partly largely because the band had written a lot of songs and as an older song, Anthony became indifferent to it after a while. A B-Side version was prepared but remained unreleased because Flea couldn't come up with a bassline he liked. After neither Californication nor any of its singles featured the song, the band became inundated with requests for it. Eventually a version with some remixing and a new bassline was released in 2003, with several demo and rough mixes eventually leaking in 2014. Anthony also alluded to the song in his Scar Tissue book. Due to its live performances, many have wondered what it would have been like had the song been released in the Californication period like it was originally intended to.

* CelebrityResemblance: Chad and Creator/WillFerrell are nearly identical, something which has lead to them challenging each other to a drum contest in 2014. Chad [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uBOtQOO70Y won.]] (with Will resorting to [[SaturdayNightLive a cowbell]] at a certain point, of course)

** Anthony has also complained about "Knock Me Down" and refuses to do it live, complains about the "One Hot Minute" period despite fan desire to hear the tracks, and basically regrets his personality in the 80s even though he was really cool.
* Creator Breakdown: Many times when either John or Anthony have slipped into drugs and rehab, but both Anthony and John have now been sober for more than 10 years each, with Anthony having the significant sobriety date of Christmas Eve, 2000.

* DyeHard: Anthony dyed his hair blonde during the ''Californication'' era (like in the picture above). Went back to the usual color by the time ''By the Way'' came out.

*** Chad Smith bleached his hair in the "One Hot Minute" period, as can be seen in the back page of the album's booklet and some posters for the period. Before that he had long black hair. For the Californication period onwards he shaved it off and wore a hat or bandanna, and has remained that way since.
