Red Hot Chili Peppers
You could view the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a band of four individuals but they prefer to be seen as "One Positive Mental Octopus." Conceived in a Los Angeles living room in 1983, the Red Hots have continually elevated their hybrid brand of funk, heavy and melodic music over two decades. Along the way, Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, John Frusciante and the Flea have found enormous success -- six Grammys in 2007 for their Rock Album of the Year "Stadium Arcadium" -- but they have also experienced tragedy and loss as founding member Hillel Slovak succumbed to a fatal heroin overdose.
