Freaky Styley is released. 1987 The band releases Uplift Mofo Party Plan. 1988 The Abbey Road EP is released. Hillel Slovak dies of a heroin overdose in June. Duane McKnight takes over guitar duties in August. At the end of the year, McKnight is replaced by John Frusciante. 1989 Frusciante provides the band with some of its best guitar work on the album Mother's Milk. 1991 The band releases Blood Sugar Sex Magik, its commercial breakthrough. 1993 While touring in support of Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Frusciante quits the band, allegedly due to the rigors of the road. He is immediately replaced by Arik Marshall, an L.A guitar fixture who had played in a band called Trulio Disgracias with Flea. Marshall fills in for the remaining dates on the tour. Before work even begins on the next record, Marshall is replaced by Jesse Tobias. Nine years after the fact, Jack Sherman files suit against the band, claiming he was mistreated by them and not adequately compensated for his contributions. By the end of 1993, Tobias is out, his stint in the band lasted about as long as Duane McKnight's. By September, the Peppers begin practicing with former Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro. 1994 Although Navarro's hiring is still considered an industry rumor, the band is scheduled to play Woodstock '94 and produce another album by year's end. The band appears at Woodstock with Navarro and begins recording in July. 1995 Numerous delays keep the Red Hot Chili Peppers from completing One Hot Minute; it is finally released in September. 1996 Chili Peppers record an Ohio Players cover song "Love RollerCoaster" and release it on the Beavis and Butthead Movie Soundtrack.
