    The dude is half-baked and although I just heard yesterday on the radio they were back together, I guess I'm not suprised.

    Edit: His website does seem to confirm that he quit (over a year ago no less).

    Seems he just wants to do his own thing. I can respect that - walking away from a huge money making machine to follow your gut - cool by me.

    I was working on Dave Navarro's editing system at his house when he found out the RHCP's had fired him to get JF back (after kicking heroin). He wasn't real pleased with how they did it, either. Can't say as I blame him from the conversation (read: screaming) I overheard (from two rooms away).

    Dave was a very cool client, nice guy, we had a lot of the same guitars. This was pre Carmen Electra in case anyone is wondering...

    Knowing John I'm sure it was him quitting not being fired. He's a quirky guy but he's true to his own vision. Good for you John, enjoy producing something with meaning for you!

    Wow. The Red Hot Chili Peppers were still around? I thought they broke up 7 years ago?

    After reading up on this I'm now listening to JF's collaboration with Joe Lally (see Fugazi's low end keeper) called Ataxia. Good stuff.

    Just don't be delusional and think it will generate anywhere near the revenues of the other band.

    Let's just say that most spin offs go nowhere, and that is when it is the most famous member/singer of the band, to name a few: Jon BonJovi, Steven Perry, Bret Michaels. For every Ozzy there are fifty that flounder.

    I'm sure Frusciante has no delusions of solo fame and fortune. He's been doing the solo thing for years. Matter of fact, he probably prefers the lack of fanfare. He's a bit of a hermit by nature.

    While I agree with you on all counts, the underlying issue is always the standard of living a person has established and what it costs to maintain. If you have a $2,000,000 house you need to generate more income than the guy with a $450,000 home.

    He'll return when he runs out of heroin.

    That's too bad. In between the over-a-year-ago quitting and now, I had heard they were going back into the studio to do a follow up to Stadium Arcadium. I was looking forward to that.

    Doesn't bother me. To be honest, since he came back I thought the music became very 'formula' and less inventive.

    Interested in seeing what comes next. I actually dug the Navarro era.

    i think "To record water for 10 days" is one of the best albums ever.. But i cant stand the Chilli Peppers.. I think John is really talented and that band holds him back.. I am sure hes got enough money allready to last a lifetime.

    WTF are you talking about? I never mentioned money... sounds like you are the delusional one. Not everyone is concerned with the mighty (or not so mighty compared with a basket of currencies) dollar my friend.

    Say alot more about you that, as a member of a prominent gear board, you don't know who the guitarist of one of the most successful bands OF ALL TIME is.

    Well considering they haven't put anything of quality out in two decades. Uhh, who cares?
