john frusciante quits RHCP

yep, looks like it's true. read about it on wikipedia or just google it.

apparently he's been alluding to quitting the band since january this year, but now it's done.

this is a pretty big shock to me, rhcp were one of the biggest bands in my life for ages and frusciante was one of my first guitar inspirations and i feel slightly disturbed by him quitting the band.

rhcp have been on the downhill since californication anyway. maybe it's time they break up?

Re: john frusciante quits RHCP

Isn't this like the 20th time he's done that though?

Re: john frusciante quits RHCP

This is bad news to me as Stadium Arcadium is one of my favorite albums of all times and I wish they would make another just like it.

On another note, I wasn't able to get in to Frusciante's latest solo album. I hope he hasn't quit with ambition to do more solo stuff.

that's exactly why he quit. his musical goals don't lie in the band situation of rhcp.

+1

Couldn't agree more on that one, although Californication was worth listening too.

I think it coincided with the band cleaning themselves up from drugs, unfortunately the awesome funk sound went out of there playing after that........

Maybe Chad will decide to stick around for another Chickenfoot album then?

Re: john frusciante quits RHCP

Weird isn't it. I read they fought allot about the By the Way album. That was about ten years ago. I Dont think Keidis and Smith share the same musical determination that Flea and Frusciante do. Who really knows. Flea made a solo album around the time of One Hot Minute which never saw the light of day. Maybe its time they all quit the band. Or get Dave Navarro Back. That was awesome.
