Conjunctivitis Keeps Chili Peppers Off Tv

Rockers RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS were forced to pull out of a taped US TV performance in Los Angeles yesterday (23MAR06) after guitarist JOHN FRUSCIANTE contracted conjunctivitis. The UNDER THE BRIDGE hitmakers were billed to perform on pop show CD: USA but had to pull out at the last minute when Frusciante's infected eye started swelling up. THE SUBWAYS, THE VERONICAS, BIG CITY ROCK and DAMONE will appear on the show, which airs in America tomorrow (25MAR06). A show insider says, "It was so last minute that the band turned up with all their gear and were starting to set it up when the news about John's eye problems came through. Instead of performing the other three members stuck around for an interview."
