They might as well give up now, he was the only interesting thing about them.
they might as well call it quits
but it wasn't them, it was pretty forced and all the tours they limped through post-BSSM look pretty bad looking back at them.
The Reunion put some fire into them again but that tired pretty quickly and they've been coasting for awhile now.
even they look bored half the time these days
I know you either love or hate them, but quite frankly they have made some exceptional music and records. Without Frusciante though, there is no Chili Peppers - simple. Dont keep trudging without him lads, because frankly there is nothing without him.
More on it here
Frusciante is an amazing guitarist, but in terms of post BSSM output, only By The Way rivals OHM. Its an amazing album, and Californication and Stadium Arcadium have nothing on it. New guitarist, new sound. It isn't the end of the world or their music.
Is By The Way better than Californication, ya goon!
if it had better production, californication, there are parts of it that could contend with their best ever stuff
By The Way > Californication
Frusciante's best work with the chilis =
1. Blood Sugar
3. By The Way
4. Mothers Milk
5. Stadium Arcadium
So it's interesting seeing Klinghoffer as the replacement.
the other two
That and Californication are both terrific albums.
bring his bad ass back
simple. they have to learn from previous lessons! one hot minute was poorly executed with a few ideas. just let it go lads, leave the great legacy alone
Shame, they were my favourite band for so long as a teenager. He's clearly a genius and I hoped he could have revived them after the turgid crap of Stadium Arcadium and they would turn back into a band I could love, I don't see how they can now. I hope his solo career continues to be as creative and exciting as it has been so far.
