Red Hot Chili Peppers Achieve "Californication;" Navarro Hooks Manson Scribe

After four years under the bridge and out of sight, the Red Hot Chili Peppers will finally have a new album, "Californication," in stores on June 8.

For this release, singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, and drummer Chad Smith welcomed John Frusciante back into the Chili Pepper fold. The guitarist last appeared on 1991's "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" before bailing out in 1992 prior to the band's Lollapalooza jaunt.

Dave Navarro, who quit the band last year, is still hard at work on his book "Trust No One," an account of a year spent by the guitarist in his Hollywood Hills home.

The former Jane's Addiction member is enlisting the help of "New York Times" writer Neil Strauss, who bonded with Marilyn Manson for last year's bestseller "The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell."
