Dear christ it saddens me to think of how ignorant you Frusciante lovers are.


He's incredibly overrated.


So does that mean he isn't talented? I have never understood the term "overrated". It is all relative. I don't listen to hype, I listen to music. I enjoy his playing. How other people feel about him is arbitrary.

Tut tut.

Maybe he is, it doesn't stop me absolutely worshipping him does it? I don't care what other people think about him as long as I like him.

What of his solo material have you heard? It's not complex, but fantastic music.

Also, stop trying to say things that make yourself sound clever. You're only trying to prove it to yourself and you're failing at that too.

Yiew mad I love John....does anyone know why his solo career isnt as famous as his Chili Pepper career I think he is very talented and deserves alot more recognision as a solo artist aswell!
And is it just me or is one of the few 'gifted' human males that can get there voice to go so high pithced but still sound good and 'manly'...I think its a beautiful gift.

I'm a big fan of the RHCP and I am like john but i dont think that hes solo career is so good..... without flea chad and antony he is not so good........ I think he should stay in red hot and not continue with hes career solo untill red hot will seperate...... and red hot doesen't seperate so soon....... =]

I love his solo stuff

Hes a great song writer, and IMO his solo stuff is underrated.

^Right on.

Once you've listened to his solo stuff quite a bit, you really start to appreciate how damn amazing it all is.

and where did you learn your grammer? was you english teacher on crack? and he wasnt quitting rhcp, his solo work is a side project.

on a different note i find a lot of side projects are different from the bands they began with (ie city and color and alexisonfire, angels and airwaves and blink 182, john frusciante and rhcp.)

Dear god I wanna slap your English teacher. But I respect your opinion and John is not leaving the band at all. If you don't like his solo career, that's fine by me.

Hey, unobservant ones, Yogev seems as if he is speaking english as a second language. And I'm guessing his english is better than your Yogevenese.

john's lead stuff is alright. I found that i was less and less impressed with it when i stopped listening to commercial music. There are plenty of guys out there that are more skilled and talented. John is an ok rhythm player and an ok lead player. He isnt very clean when it comes to anything so I'm not super impressed, but i do love thier live perfomance and music. The Chili Peppers (aside from chad, who is a human metronome) arent very clean musicians, but I think thats why they are so enjoyable. Because they play what they feel, even if it is a little sloppy every now and then.

i think he only does shows around the area where he lives, i dont think he tours as a solo act. key words in that are "i think".

john certainly is a sloppy player...its nothing to do with improvising, people can improvise and it not be sloppy....

but thats the thing that makes him great....its just his style, john wouldnt be john without that aspect to his playing...and the music he plays wouldnt be the same....

my thoughts exactly. there are plenty of people who improv and are super clean, but not john.

i like john's style- when i went to see rhcp live, he improvised the solos and the ones especially in dani calfiornia and cant stop were VERY good.

rhcp put on a great live show btw

Given thoses two categories, I would say mellow. But it depends on what CD you buy. Curtains is all acoustic, and very mellow. But his other CD's have some more up tempo songs. Definitely not funky like RHCP though.

Ok, so I've heard the songs on John's website, but I was wondering what you guys think the best cd of his was. And if you could, tell me what makes it so good. Thanks guys.

I'm really partial to Curtains, but I only have 3 of his CD's and whatever else I was able to download of the internet. I also have Inside of Emptiness and Shadows Collide with People. Curtains is all acoustic, and for some reason it really relaxes me. Not really sure why it's my favorite, it just is. I like them all.

Ok, so the main choices i have been looking at are Curtains and Shadows Collide With People. Which of these would you say to get. And if you could, give reasons why. Thanks.
