Rock it Out! Blog - John Frusciante officially quits RHCP

We bring you the news on Rage Against The Machine returning for a performance on BBC Radio, John Frusciante announces he is leaving the Red Hot Chili Peppers and we reveal our top 5 rock albums of 2009!

"So the news on whether John Frusciante would leave the band Red Hot Chili Peppers has been confirmed by the man himself. Frusciante wrote on his blog (via CoS) yesterday that he would be leaving the band.

Josh Klinghoffer, who has toured with RHCP in the past and played with Frusciante on his solo albums, is still rumored to be the replacement for the group.

The band are apparently working on their 10th album and it will not contain the sounds of John’s playing. Frusciante joined the band back in 1988, quit four years later and then rejoined the group in 1998. You can read his full farewell statement below. Thanks for your time and service to the Peppers, John! Good luck to you.

When I quit the band, over a year ago, we were on an indefinite hiatus. There was no drama or anger involved, and the other guys were very understanding. They are supportive of my doing whatever makes me happy and that goes both ways.

To put it simply, my musical interests have led me in a different direction. Upon rejoining, and throughout my time in the band, I was very excited about exploring the musical possibilities inherent in a rock band, and doing so with those people in particular. A couple of years ago, I began to feel that same excitement again, but this time it was about making a different kind of music, alone, and being my own engineer.

I really love the band and what we did. I understand and value that my work with them means a lot to many people, but I have to follow my interests. For me, art has never been something done out of a sense of duty. It is something I do because it is really fun, exciting, and interesting. Over the last 12 years, I have changed, as a person and artist, to such a degree that to do further work along the lines I did with the band would be to go against my own nature. There was no choice involved in this decision. I simply have to be what I am, and have to do what I must do.

Sending love and gratitude to you all.
