The Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the most influential bands of all-time, blending elements of funk, punk, and psychedelic rock into their music to create their unique sound. It’s unmistakable when you hear the plucky bass of Flea, the melodic vocals of Anthony Kiedis, or the legendary guitar licks of John Frusciante.
Kiedis actually drew the iconic asterisk logo himself during the band’s formative years. The asterisk has been associated with the“Star of Affinity,” which stands for chaos. Kiedis, however, had a far racier explanation about what it means that we’ll refrain from sharing here. Both Kiedis and Frusciante have the asterisk logo tattooed on their right wrists, while fans around the world show their love from the funky band out of Los Angeles with their own RHCP logo shirts and band merch.
