Year after year, we give our warmest support to John Frusciante’s musical efforts – whether it’s been his solo work, his two long stints with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, his collaborations with other artists from or something completely different, in the spirit of Speed Dealer Moms or studio sessions with Swahili Blonde. We were witnessing history happening right before our eyes, multiple times, too.
As of today, “our” John is 42 years old. During the last 12 months, he was as busy as ever, appearing on other artists’ albums, as well as in a couple of documentaries. It’s confirmed that he’s working on new material, we know that he’s tied the knot and that he’s a hall of fame inductee, together with his former band. The creativity never stops and therefore, support never stops, either.
Though there’s no official action of wishing him a happy birthday, nor does anyone know if he ever comes across such things; make sure you think of him today. Furthermore, you can leave a happy birthday message in comments of this news item. Just make it tasteful. Make it spontaneous. Let your heart speak to someone whose music made an impact on you. Make it a message of health, love, happiness and inspiration. No stupid application using generated text that spams around can make up for your real feelings.
Happy birthday, John!
