Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slash, Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood play at Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slash, Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood play at Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
Red Hot Chili Peppers were joined onstage by The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash at this year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch them play together.

This year's ceremony took place on April 14 in Cleveland, Ohio and will be broadcast on US TV channel HBO this evening, but a preview clip has been posted on Rolling Stone. The Chili Peppers, who were one of this year's inductees, performed their version of the Stevie Wonder track 'Higher Ground', which they released as a single from their second album, 'Mother's Milk', in 1989.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Parliament founder George Clinton and Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones also joined the onstage jam session.

The build-up to this year's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was dominated by speculation over whether the original line-up of Guns N' Roses would perform together at the ceremony. Eventually, frontman Axl Rose skipped the bash after claiming he didn't feel "wanted or respected" by his former bandmates, and was subsequently booed by the Cleveland crowd when his name was mentioned.

Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to the UK and Ireland this summer to play three huge outdoor shows. The band will play Knebworth Park near Stevenage on June 23, Sunderland's Stadium Of Light on June 24 and Dublin's Croke Park on June 26.

Last month, they released a free live EP, with four of the five tracks on the free download recorded on the band's UK run of shows in 2011. You can watch the video for the single 'Look Around' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
