As usual, John Frusciante was supported by the other three Red Hot Chili Peppers when he performed at the Roxy on Monday. But Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Chad Smith--who welcomed the guitarist back to the band in 1998 after a five-year, addiction-forced absence--weren't on stage.

The head of the company that claims to have created the first human clone insisted under oath in a Fort Lauderdale court that the baby exists and is in Israel. With that, Circuit Judge John Frusciante said the baby would be outside the jurisdiction of the Florida court, and he threw out a petition seeking the appointment of a guardian for the child.

The sharpest hook on the fourth LP by Los Angeles' newly reconstituted Pep Boys--dedicated to the group's late guitarist Hillel Slovak--is the sound of Anthony Kiedis singin' Sly-ly, "If you see me gettin' high, knock me down," on the song "Knock Me Down." That tune, and the w-i-l-double-d mamma-slamma-jamma-splunka-punk-funk of "Magic Johnson" might burn the brightest, buds, but the rest of this largely thrashin' LP is pretty solid smoke too.

SO, Robert Stephens, you saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers once in '84. Well, I guess that makes you an expert on the band [Letters: "Hold the Peppers," July 2]. "They haven't advanced much," what a joke. The evolution of the Peppers has been one of the truly fascinating stories in rock 'n' roll, with all members becoming masters of their craft. I wonder if this guy has even heard "Stadium Arcadium," with John Frusciante's amazingly fluid and punctuating guitar shops, not to mention Flea's brilliant bass work.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival returns to the Empire Polo Fields in Indio on April 28. Jane's Addiction (which includes singer Perry Farrell, right), Weezer and Iggy Pop anchor the rock side of the bill, but dance music is the main attraction, with Fatboy Slim, the Chemical Brothers, Paul Oakenfold and the Orb representing the tip of the electronic iceberg. Tickets go on sale Saturday. . . .
