Default John Frusciante

I am in love with this guys music. Not many people seem to dig his solo stuff though, any opinions? Thoughts?

John is awful, his solo stuff is worthless. Nothing worth talking about.

seriously, LOL!



really the only thing this is good for is to keep kids off of drugs. show them this and say "this could be you"... if it doesn't scare them away from them, well... they are hopeless.

While I agree with you Bastard, after trying my damndest to find something redeemable about his discography, I've found 5 or so songs out of ... some 100... that I can enjoy. But I was fairly disappointed to find out that this was what some folks were raving about...

Well first off, you can't discard anyones work as worthless.. Opinions are subjective. I'll admit most of his solo stuff is too experimental for me personally. But the empyrean and shadows collide with people have subtle aspects that you need to listen to a few times to appreciate.. Why don't you like his solo stuff? Or why is it 'worthless' to you?

His vocal harmonies with the Chili Peppers were a revelation--they didn't have to bring choirs in all the time anymore...

but seriously, listen to the song I posted and tell me when all is said and done, how is it any better than this....



aside from the obvious difference in musical styles.... they share the same traits.
