frusciante is the chili peppers guitarist. while i enjoyed dave navarro's work on one hot minute, and i don't think frusciante is one of the best in the world like wingedgopher, john does make for the quintessential rhcp sound.

Frusciante he made more memorable stuff imo. Like the solo in Dani California was a total departure from their old stuff. I also like the riff in Snow.
#7
I'd say John Frusciante. Can't really explain why. His technicall skills might not be better than the skills the other guitarists had but I just really love his riffs and solos, they sound so emotional and funky at the same time. I also like the overal composition of the tracks John plays in more than I like the overal composition of the tracks the other guitarists play in, so he also gets some extra point for the way he helps to shape the overal sound of the band.

Hillel was absolutely fantastic from what I hear, but I have too much respect for Frusciante to say anybody else. His guitarings great, and tasteful and full of passion, but I can't sit through watching him being interviewed, it just annoys me.

Hillel Slovak brought the Chili sound, however rough, together. Hell, he brought the whole damn band together, was a massive musical influence to all involved, Frusciante and Flea especially. The fact that he was such a close friend to Jack Irons and Kiedis counts for something too.

John completed it, refined it, and is the guitarist everyone will remember when you say "Red Hot Chili Peppers".

Dave Navarro was probably more influential than people think. I say we have him to thank for keeping the band together through a terrible period - Johns drug problems so soon after losing Slovak - and nudged them in a more rock oriented direction. Navarros guitar work was much more rock and roll than Frusciantes slightly more choppy, funky style and I believe this influenced the band (despite Kiedis stating in words to the effect of Navarro being the most irritating individual he's ever met) - compare post-Navarro Californication to pre-Navarro Blood Sugar Sex Magik. While probably the most insignificant of the three well kown RHCP guitarists, I think he's unfairly judged by fans.

But in the end, I think Frusciante takes it. He played on all their classics, the Chilis didn't feel quite right without him, he's just the right man for the job.

Unfortunately, I think he dropped the ball on Dani California, that solo made me cringe.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

anyone who says anything besides john is a dumbass. im not saying their othe rguitarists aren't good, but i cant see how you can't say john after what he's done in their CAREER. dave navarro worked with them for like one album,.. big deal, john was there for almost their entire catalogue

I own and treasure all three, thank you

I just prefer the more chilled, but still funky vibe of Blood Sugar Sex Magik over the frantically funky earlier stuff.

Don't be silly. Guest appearance does not equate to member of the band. At least not in my book.
