Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante performed with his old band last Saturday for Andrew Burkle‘s private memorial in Los Angeles. It was their first performance together since 2007.
Frusciante also shared the stage with Jane’s Addiction to sing “Mountain Song.”
The event was organized by The Tony Hawk Foundation.
Foundation president Tony Hawk wrote in detail about the event on social media, accompanied by video clips.
“Today we celebrated the life of Andrew Burkle. He was a beloved son, friend and brother to the lucky ones that surrounded him. Because of him, @tonyhawkfoundation had landmark fundraising events in Beverly Hills for 10 years in a row and I am forever grateful for his support in our mission,” Hawk said on Instagram.
Hawk said Burkle’s “passion for life was contagious, and his spirit lives on through our work”.
“A perfect example of Andrew’s magnetism was displayed this afternoon when this all-star lineup came together to perform Iggy Pop and Gang Of Four (and RHCP) songs in his honor. Thank you Andrew, we will miss you beyond words,” he added.
