John Frusciante Second Departure
It's a little bit late, but I have just known that Mr.Frusciante had leave Red Hot Chili Pepper for the second time. In a short statement posted on both his blog and MySpace, the 39-year-old guitarist revealed that he left the band over a year ago after his musical interests “led me in a different direction.”
Frusciante leaves behind a band, who, through their revolutionary fusion of funk and rock, is perhaps the most influential group in the modern rock era. He also leaves behind Flea, with whom he shared one of rock's most distinctive bass-guitar partnerships. That quirky, funky Red Hot Chili Peppers sound, so perfectly complimented by the smoothness and melody of Frusciante's guitar, is now gone.
Yes, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a band all-too-familiar with guitarist changes, will go on as they always have, but the Frusciante-era of the Chili Peppers will ultimately go down as one of the most prominent groups in rock history.
John Frusciante's play is so RHCP's style. So, have you heard the latest album with new guitarist? What is your opinion?
