This is funny as hell.

Whats funniest is his take on one hot minute(well actually bowie was best but still...):


The Red Hot Chili Peppers had turned some heads with the innovative funky, rap-rock blend of Blood Sugar Sex Magik. They hoped to keep turning those heads until they snapped right off with 1995's One Hot Minute. Their recording process reads like a "how to" guide for great bands who want to make sure they never sell another album.

Step One: Get rid of song writing partner and guitar visionary John Frusciante.

Step Two: Replace him with metal-inspired possible trannie, Dave Navarro.

Step Three: Press record.

Singer and songwriter Anthony Kiedis was so depressed that he fell back into drugs after five years of sobriety. As a result, the album was less about sex and funk and more about drug-induced soul searching and heavy metal. Dave Navarro, the source of the metal, was reportedly concerned about the RHCP recording process. He often wondered why so much "jamming" was involved in the making of the album, which lead many music scholars to question whether or not Navarro had actually ever heard the Chili Peppers.

The album was commercially and critically unsuccessful and, with Frusciante's return to the band a few years later, it's easier for everyone to just pretend One Hot Minute never happened.

"He hopes to reinvent himself as a phrenologist."

You know what? I prefer Dave as a guitarist to John, just to be in the minority. Ha.

I thought it was John's decision to quit RHCP?


It was. Funny article, but i thought the Smashing Pumpkins made a good move, which Radiohead make too. I like Adore and post Adore material.
