    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Great news! John Frusciante is back! 1 of my favorite guitar players ever. I would love to hear him work with NIN at some point but he's going to be busy now, haha.

    The two albums that RHCP made with Klinghoffer weren't bad, especially The Getaway, but it's not the same without Frusciante.

    I was thinking the same thing. I thought for sure he was done from the last stint.

    I guess John boy pissed all his money away. I guess putting out solo albums for 30 people to buy and playing solo shows in half empty coffee shops lost its appeal. Rejoin Anthony and Fleas band for the 10th time. Play stadiums for a year doing 'under the bridge' and 'give it away'. Make a shitload of money and then quit for the 10th time claiming you need to pursue your own artistic vision. De ja vu? This guys lucky he isn't in jail after what he did to River Phoenix that fateful night in 93. John boy was the one who gave River the dose of drugs that killed him that night. Hes a millionaire now while River is taking a dirt nap. Doesnt seem right

    Some (not all) of those solo records are pretty wonderful. Definitely not coasting on past glories.

    I think their early stuff like Freaky Styley and Uplift Mofo Party Plan had some cool shit on there....And I also think everything over the past 20 years has been godawful....And for the John fan boys out there, read up on the River Phoenix story and what really went down that night. You will see your hero in a whole new light and realize I am not just talking shit.

    Cliffs notes version....John boy and River were on a 3 day heroin and crack binge. John boy and River went to the Viper Room to party. River went to the bathroom to do some more smack (accompanied by Flea who fired the needle in Rivers arm). John boy poured a lethal dose of a heroin cocaine speedball in Rivers drink (without River knowing about it) River comes back to the table and downs the drink. River starts convulsing. Joaquin wanted to call the paramedics. John boy stopped him and said "don't ruin his high".....Finally they called paramedics and it was too late. River died that night. John boy apparently told people he was going to kill himself if the cops came after him so Johnny Depp convinced people to lie to the cops and say they had no clue if anyone gave or did any drugs with River.....Ironically 2 members of RHCP played a big part in Rivers demise...River Phoenix is one of my favorite actors so yeah its a bit of a touchy subject for me.....Hypothetically, if Manson poured Trent a lethal cocktail of a heroin/coke speedball without TR knowing about it and TR downed the drink and died from it, I wonder how people would view Manson?

    I'm not impugning what you are saying at all but where does your information come from? I've never heard any of this & I follow news about Frusciante somewhat.

    It's a mixture of accountings from Bob Forrest and Samantha Mathis.

    His previuos stint with the band lasted almost 10 years. Are you anxious to see him gone again?

    Interesting development. Didn't think this was ever going to happen. Last I heard he gave up the guitar to make electronic music for his ghost buddies in the 4th dimension.

    Will they perform any music from the two Josh albums? Will they go back to Rick Rubin?

    All this news made me go back to "To Record Only Water for Ten Days" (One of my favorite album titles ever) and it still fucking hits. Ramparts man..... Ramparts.

    He absolutely should have been inducted into the HOF with the band. OHM had several hit songs and that album was pretty big, circa 1995/1996.

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again; One Hot Minute is the best Chili Peppers’ record. You’ve got sturdy mainstream hits (Aeroplane, My Friends), heavy riffing (Warped, One Hot Minute), the best Cobain tribute ever penned (Tearjerker), the best River Phoenix tribute ever penned (Transcending), cool quirky songs (Walkabout, Falling Into Grace), cheap/cheerful novelty (Pea), and the single most underrated track in RHCP’s catalogue (Shallow Be Thy Game). It’s a perfectly imperfect record for a perfectly imperfect band. Also highlighted by Navarro’s amazing range of playing, Flea’s peak prime slapping, and Anthony’s best lyrics. I liked Californication a lot too...but nothing will top this. Their complete insistence on putting this era under the carpet is baffling. It’s not like it was Navarro who cooked up River’s speedball..

    Album is so good.

    I haven't seen RHCP live before, but now I will. Probably twice.

    Hopefully JF does solo shows in the near future... After this latest news, I think that's surely just as possible.

    Neglected this album for a decent amount of time; very refreshing to revisit it.

    I had a chance to see them during the Arcadium days, but had a lot going on at the time. I'll be trying to see them sure once something materializes, and a solo from JF would be grand.

    Am I the only one that wasn’t that into Stadium Arcadium? Album was pretty big for them but I didn’t care for a lot of it.

    no, you're not. a better way to ask that question is "anyone else not into...."

    In my opinion SA was lame because of how it was mixed. Drums turned down and the vocals turned up all as loud as possible. I have been listening to a lot of SA instrumentals on YouTube. Once you take out Anthony a more exciting and interesting record reveals it self. All of John's guitar tracks from that record are available as well and there as so many cool layers and sounds that would have made interesting center points to a number of the songs.

    The true gems of that record are that it does feel like a band playing; there are songs where you can feel the tempo speed up and down, and there are many wonderful guitaring layers and harmonies.

    Don't get me started about the terrible job that was done engineering and mastering the Californication record. The drums on a lot of those tracks sound like they were converted to a 128kbps mp3 file. The entire thing has zero dynamic range. I find it nearly impossible to listen to that record.

    Itís my favourite and I agree with all the highlights you raise. Friends of mine who are more into RHCP threaten to punch me when I express this opinion.
