• John Frusciante and Truth Hurts

    Truth Hurts talks about working with John in an interview

    In a recent interview, Share Watson aka Truth Hurts talks about her musical comeback and she is asked about working with John. She has nothing but good works for him, though her description on what is released and what is not might not be as "scary" as it would've been months earlier!

  • Johnny Marr

    Johnny Marr: John is a very deep guy

    In his question and answer session for Guitar World, Johnny Marr was asked how it was like to work with John on The Empyrean five years ago. He did not share anything that we have not heard before, but he had only the nicest possible words for the maestro, saying that he is not blasé at all and that he is a very deep guy; implying that we probably know that already. Oh well, don't we?

  • Macy Gray - The ID

    Macy Gray: You can’t teach what John Frusciante does!

    Soul diva Macy Gray recalls her past experiences collaborating with other musicians, as her somewhat surprising Covered covers album is being released. Unlike once back in the days, when she only said John was funny when doing joga in the studio, she had only the kindest words for him: one can't teach what he does!

  • EMA

    EMA would find it pretty sweet to collaborate with John

    Rising star EMA (real name Erika M. Anderson) was recently interviewed by Spinner and she was asked what musicians would she collaborate with, if she was given the opportunity to choose. Is there anyone you’d like to collaborate with? I mean, it’d be cool to collaborate with whatever Swedish people made that Britney Spears record [Miike Snow], that or a hip-hop producer. John Fogerty or Meredith Monk would probably be my people that I would like to try and do something with. And John Frusciante would be pretty sweet as well.

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers live at Slane Castle - screencap

    Boston Herald: Frusciante – totally and completely awesome.

    In response to his original post on the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Boston Herald blogger Jed Gottlieb had only words of praise for John. Yes, yes, yes, the dude is awesome. Totally and completely awesome. But it wasn’t just his guitar playing that made the Peppers great. It was what he brought out of his fellow band members. Check out the clip below and watch what John and Flea can do together (damn, I should say, could do together). Flea always said that he never connected with anyone else musically like he connected with John. That’s pretty obvious from this little jam. And who are we to disagree, friends? You…

  • Chad Smith: John Frusciante best musician I’ve known and played with

    In a fresh new interview with Drum Magazine, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith has only words of praise for John. This interview is far better in terms of how it was edited, so everything’s pretty clear. Looks like Drum Magazine does it a bit better than some others. Burned out by two decades of an unforgiving album-tour- album cycle, the Red Hot Chili Peppers agreed to cool it for at least a year in 2008. They walked away from the stage, the studio, and each other. Then, in the middle of the break, guitarist John Frusciante left to pursue solo work full-time. Though the move extended the group’s absence…

  • RZA says he got into rock’n’roll through John and SOAD

    In a lengthy interview for Red Bull, titled “The Man With The Iron Wu”, RZA is talking about many things and, as in the most of his interviews in the last couple of years, he touches the subject of John. This time, however, he’s not giving two-sided comments on the music they make together which appear to have creeped everyone out and aren’t matching the amount of music we actually got this yearl; he’s talking about how he got into rock music. What’s on RZA’s iPod these days – if you have one of those at all? I have a couple of iPods and I got all kind of different…

  • K’Naan: John Frusciante is just incredible

    Somali-Canadian musician and poet K’naan was featured in The Independent’s section “My Fantasy Band”. He picked John as his fantasy band’s guitar player and here is why. He’s the guitarist for Red Hot Chili Peppers and I think he’s just incredible. His melodics are always great and I like how his sustain pedal always creates a little bit more of an extended dream. I don’t remember hearing anything I didn’t like from him. The rest of K’Naan’s band would be the late Nina Simone and Fela Kuti, as well as two living musicians – Idris Muhammed and Markéta Irglová. You should read the entire article to see why. Even though…

  • Dave Navarro on John’s departure from Red Hot Chili Peppers

    In a fan Q and A session on his website, Dave Navarro who is, as we all know, a former Chili Pepper himself, responded to a question regarding John’s departure. 7. I was just wondering whats [sic] your whole opinion on John Frusciante leaving the Chili Peppers once again? Like a lot of the die hard fans I am sorry to see him go. John has been a source of magic for that band that hasn’t been there in any incarnation since Hillel. Still, I understand that as an artist there might be different places he wants to go creatively and I look forward to those efforts. I am also…

  • A very nice mention of John coming from Juliette Lewis

    There’s a really nice mention of John in an article on Juliete Lewis in the current issue of the quarterly UK mag, Classic Rock presents Prog magazine. The article itself is entitled “My Prog Heroes”. Here’s an excerpt from it. The relevant excerpt, that is. Actress, singer and performer Juliette Lewis has gone from National Lampoon-er to international rock star. And with Floyd, Beefheart and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez in the mix, her prog journey has just begun…. “I’ve long been a fan of the obvious prog like Pink Floyd – I’m a huge Floyd fan – and I’ve been so eager to discover much more, especially since going to a John…
