He's perhaps the most surprising frontman not to try to make the jump, and thank the devil for that. While tracks like "Under the Bridge" certainly suggest he could make a Rob Thomas-like, big-ballad move, Kiedis seems dedicated to his mates, and rightly so. Flea and guitarist John Frusciante have continued to move the Red Hot Chili Peppers to new musical fields, and their interplay has served as a cozy bed for Kiedis' career. While Kiedis may be capable of solo glory, it's admirable he's saved his pepper for the band and spent his spare time acting and writing and, let's hope, improving his dance skills.
