    Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante will not be in attendance at the group's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, scheduled for mid April.

    Drummer Chad Smith has revealed that the RHCP have extended invites to all their surviving bandmates, including Jack Irons and Cliff Martinez, to perform at the ceremony. Frusciante has declined.

    Smith told Billboard that Frusciante "didn't feel comfortable coming, which we totally respect. We asked him… He said, 'I'm just not really comfortable with that, but good luck and thanks for inviting me.' It was all good. He's the kind of guy, I think, that once he's finished with something he's just on to the next phase of his life. The Chili Peppers are not really on his radar right now."

    To each his own.
