Pretty straightforward, when do you think that John Frusciante's guitar playing reached its zenith. You can give examples of why you think so, if you want to (particular techniques, solos, etc.)

i dont want to say blood sugar sex magik cause thats just what really made him well known and so you might say that was his big beginning, but i think thats definitely his best work. theres not a bad guitar part (or song) on that album. ill go with that

I bet you have a Che Guevara T-shirt as well.

Zapatistas are not in perfect Communism, they're in poverty.

His musical peak (so far) has been stadium arcadium, which, funnily enough, isn't even the best Chili's album...

I'm not saying I know something you don't, I'm saying pledging your support and wanting to be part of an domestic uprising in a state that's in another country, a world away from anything you're used to seems a strange thing to go into deeply.
#26
yeh, i kinda looked into it far too much during my rage against the machine > anything else days

i just hate the way theyve been treated and is an injustice that moe people should no about. but you say that, and what of the worldwide camapigning of freedom for tibet, isnt that kinda the same thing?

It's not, one is a destruction of a culture, the other is people wanting to have a better life.

Both valid things, of course, but it's not quite the same.

At exactly 9.47 am on the 17th of June 1972. You know why.


This is wrong. June 17, 1972, things that happened:

-Watergate scandal: Five White House operatives were arrested for burglarizing the offices of the Democratic National Committee.
-The United States returns Okinawa, occupied and governed since the WW2 Battle of Okinawa, back to the government of Japan.
-Chilean president Salvador Allende forms a new government.
