John Frusciante unofficial – Invisible Movement

Collaborations

The list of full albums John did with other musicians. Bands are listed alphabetically, while the output in each section remains in descending order (newest first). This list does not include one-off guest appearances, neither does it include numerous records with the Mars Volta, production work for the Black Knights and - duh - anything done with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
