The Red Hot Chilli Peppers have paid tribute to their former guitarist Jack Sherman, who has sadly died aged 64.

The guitarist played on the band’s debut self-titled album, and he also contributed to their albums Freaky Styley, Mother’s Milk and The Abbey Road EP.

In a post shared on Instagram, the band wrote: “We of the RHCP family would like to wish Jack Sherman smooth sailing into the worlds beyond, for he has passed.”

“Jack played on our debut album as well as our first tour of the USA. He was a unique dude and we thank him for all times good, bad and in between. Peace on the boogie platform.”

The news comes years after Jack expressed his disappointment, after he was not included when the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

At the time, he told Billboard: “It’s really painful to see all this celebrating going on and be excluded. I’m not claiming that I’ve brought anything other to the band… but to have soldiered on under arduous conditions to try to make the thing work.”

“And I think that’s what you do in a job, looking back. And that’s been dishonored. I’m being dishonored, and it sucks.”
