John Frusciante


John Frusciante & RHCP

John Frusciante has twice been the guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers; he originally joined the band in 1988 and played on Mother’s Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik before quitting the band in 1992, on the tour to support the latter album, after being overwhelmed by the band’s success. The next few years saw Frusciante becoming a recluse and descending into a world of drug addiction during which he released a couple of solo recordings (more were released after he rejoined the Chili Peppers). After completing drug rehab he rejoined RHCP in time to record 1999’s Californication album. He also played guitar on the group’s By The Way and Stadium Arcadium albums. Frusciante announced on his website that he’d left the band at the end of 2009 although the announcement was made some time after he’d actually left. He was replaced by friend and musical collaborator, Josh Klinghoffer.

  1. john, i am 17, and my life is in a very weird place.
    i don’t know what’s happening to me, and i can’t find anyone to talk to.
    regardless of your music, i found myself relating to every word you said on interviews and watching the documentary funky monks made me feel inspired by you to let my self be free. i could threat to kill myself if you won’t reply but then your reply won’t be sincere.
    i honestly just feel curious to see what you are like, and to know that if i am anything like you and that you are good now, then maybe there’s a point to life and that i should grow older.

    thank you

  2. John. You have made a significant difference in my life. Your solo albums (especially Niandra LaDes) inspired me to pick up a guitar. I was in a bad place a few years back, and To Record Only Water for Ten Days, had gotten me through a mental rehabilitation process, similar to your motives to create that very album. I have to thank you as well. You were a perfect example of a person broken by fame. My main intention to ever become a rockstar at age twelve was the bisexuality, cosmetics and loads of drugs. That VPRO documentary where you appear visibly intoxicated, scared the life out of me. I greatly admire people who still remain humble, even after the money, girls, and platinum-selling records.

    I know u won’t here this
    Lovingly, Evan P. Miles-Wright
