    Sherman joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1983, replacing the band's founding guitarist Hillel Slovak, and played on their debut self-titled album, also participating in several others. He left the band in 1985 prior to the release of Freaky Styley, as Slovak returned to the RHCP.

    Former RHCP member Jack Sherman has died at 64, the band said in an Instagram post.

    Following his exit from the Chili Peppers in 1985, Sherman provided session work for Bob Dylan, Tonio K, Bill Madden, and Gerry Goffin. The musician, however, later reunited with Chili Peppers in 1988 to provide backing vocals on the Mother's Milk tracks "Higher Ground" and "Good Time Boys".

    Despite his contributions to the band, he was not inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, like the other members of the group.
