Mc Knight, however, failed to connect musically within the group.
Flea proposed auditioning Frusciante, whose intimate knowledge of the Chili Peppers' repertoire impressed him.
Flea and Kiedis auditioned him and agreed that he would be a suitable replacement for Mc Knight, who was promptly fired.
When Flea called Frusciante with the news of his acceptance into the Chili Peppers, Frusciante was elated; he ran through his house screaming with joy, and jumped on a wall, leaving permanent boot marks.
Their next album, Californication (1999) would eventually go on to sell 15.4 million copies.
His album To Record Only Water for Ten Days was released in 2001.
He idolized guitarist Hillel Slovak—familiarizing himself with virtually all the guitar and bass parts from the Chili Peppers' first three records.
He became acquainted with Slovak; the two spoke months before Slovak's death and Frusciante's subsequent joining:... That's great about the band, the audience feels no different from the band at all.' There was this real kind of historical vibe at their shows, none of the frustration that runs through the audience when they jump around and can't get out of their seat. I'd get so excited that I'd flip around the slam pit the whole time.
The pair added Peligro on drums and De Wayne "Blackbyrd" Mc Knight, formerly of P-Funk, on guitar.
Producer Michael Beinhorn disagreed, and wanted Frusciante to play with an uncharacteristic heavy metal tone, largely absent from the band's three preceding records.
Kiedis recalls that "[Beinhorn] wanted John to have a big, crunching, almost metal-sounding guitar tone whereas before we always had some interesting acid-rock guitar tones as well as a lot of slinky, sexy, funky guitar tones." The Chili Peppers collaborated with producer Rick Rubin for their second record with Frusciante, Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
He was considering a contract with Thelonious Monster at the time—and had actually been playing with the act for two weeks—but his unanticipated reception into the Chili Peppers prompted him to change his plans.
However, Frusciante was not familiar with the funk genre of Red Hot Chili Peppers' sound: "I wasn't really a funk player before I joined the band.
Hillel asked me, 'Would you still like the Chilis if they got so popular they played the Forum? I really felt like a part of the band, and all the sensitive people in the audience did too. They often jammed together, and Peligro invited his friend Flea (bassist of Red Hot Chili Peppers) to join.
