John didn't come back for this???? They have another guitar player ???? again?????
By default I am gonna be adding this album to the collection but I'm iffy about it because I ahven't heard much and every Chili peppers release includes big fanfare via advertising and radio time. I don't listen to the radio but I did see somewhere a couple weeks back that they had a new single but I haven't seen much if any good feedback on it at all.
^one hot minute was decent, but it didn't seem like an rhcp album to me...frusciante is amazing when he's "on", he makes even their most banal songs palatable...I'll probably give it a spin on a bike ride or something eventually
Name: Josh Klinghoffer...he's played on loads of Frusciante's solo albums, contributing drums & vocals among other things. He's toured with PJ Harvey, Gnarls barkely and loads of other bands.
He also has his own band called Dot Hacker where he sings, some of their songs are on youtube. They will also release an album sometime late next year/early 2013. (Based on RHCP's current touring schedule).
Also, i thought One Hot Minute was fucking dope, and i'm a huge frusciante fan.
Honestly this isnt close to thier best album, but it's still very good....Klinghoffer does a great job bringing a funk sound back, and Flea BEASTS throughout. Monarchy of Roses, Brandons Death Song, Ethiopia, Annie Wants a Baby, Look Around, and Police Station are the standout tracks
