John Frusciante. He's talented too. And clean today and extremely intelligent.

Keith Richards. In addition to taking copious amounts of drugs, he is also immortal.

It's Toni Loomi. Get it right. And he certainly never did any drugs ever. I should know. I'm writing his unofficial official unofficial biography. It's quite a page turner.

Yeah, it's a common mistake. Ossy Ozbourne of the Ossy Ozbourne Experience used to get them super confused, since they both played guitar for him.

Yes. John Frusciante was an absolute loser when he was addicted to drugs, but he became a God-like figure after rehab and lead the Red Hot Chili Peppers to what they are today (Or at least used to be before "I'm With You").

What makes it even more interesting is that he did it all deliberately. He started with smack because he wanted to and because he was interested. lol

I don't know a single drug user that didn't do it deliberately.
