Red Hot Chili Peppers’ John Frusciante Reveals Plans For ‘New Musical Life’


MixMag is reporting that former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante is releasing a sequel to his 2015 acid house record Trickfinger on Friday.

Describing the Trickfinger project as “the beginning of a new musical life,” John noted:

“In my opinion, making music with no intention of releasing it is the best thing a musician can do for his own development in this day and age.

“The Trickfinger LP was made in that mindset, and it was the beginning of a new musical life for me.

“When I hear it, it sounds like I am opening up doorways to new worlds, and I never have had that feeling listening to music I made for the purpose of releasing it and selling it.”

All the music was recorded live onto a CD burner through a cheap mixer with no overdubs.

Since his last album with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, Frusciante has released a string of experimental albums including collaborations with The Mars Volta and Speed Dealer Moms.

A fan was photographed with former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante this weekend at LAX in Los Angeles just before he boarded a flight.

A commenter asked, “Omg! What did John tell you? It looks like he was saying something lol.”

pelosinvida said that Frusciante was ‘very nice.’ He also described him as ‘very kind and timid.’

“Really nice person I just said him hello, he was with his girlfriend (I supose…)”

He added, “I did not want to disturb him.”

Frusciante has been retired from touring for a decade, but he has always said to have been friendly whenever he encounters fans, despite his retreat from the spotlight.
