RHCP guitarist John Frusciante talks about his new album
Plus, he answers your questions
ike much of the music he makes, Red Hot Chili Peppers' guitarist John Frusciante is a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a question. And he probably wouldn't have it any other way.
Frusciante has released a string of solo recordings through the years, albums filled with anxious, yearning metaphysical mood music, songs that seem to exist without the imprint of craft but are bursting with intellect and emotion.
"The drive to create music that is pure is my highest priority," says Frusciante. "Sometimes I'll get extremely technical in my approach, and other times I'll just kind of go with the gods of music. I think an artist has to answer to whatever spirits are guiding him. Even if they're in conflict, that's OK."
