Frusciante began studying guitarists such as Jeff Beck , Jimmy Page , David Gilmour and Jimi Hendrix at He discovered Frank Zappa , whose work he would study for hours.
Frusciante discovered the Red Hot Chili Peppers around when his guitar instructor was auditioning as a guitarist for them.
He became acquainted with Slovak; the two spoke months before Slovak's death: . Hillel asked me, "Would you still like the Chilis if they got so popular they played the Forum?
It would ruin the whole thing. That's great about the band, the audience feels no different from the band at all. I didn't even watch the shows.
I'd get so excited that I'd flip around the slam pit the whole time. I really felt like a part of the band, and all the sensitive people in the audience did too.
Frusciante became friends with former Dead Kennedys drummer D. Peligro in early They jammed together, and Peligro invited his friend, Chili Peppers bassist Flea.
Frusciante and Flea developed musical chemistry immediately, with Flea later acknowledging that might have been the day he first played the bass riff to the future Chili Peppers track " Nobody Weird Like Me ".
Frusciante said, "I realized that I wanted to be a rock star, do drugs and get girls, and that I wouldn't be able to do that if I was in Zappa's band.
Slovak died of a heroin overdose in Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Jack Irons , devastated, left the group.
Remaining members Flea and vocalist Anthony Kiedis recruited Peligro on drums and DeWayne "Blackbyrd" McKnight , formerly of P-Funk , on guitar. Flea proposed auditioning Frusciante, whose intimate knowledge of the Chili Peppers' repertoire impressed him.
Flea and Kiedis auditioned him and agreed that he would be a suitable replacement for McKnight. Frusciante was not familiar with the funk genre of Red Hot Chili Peppers' sound, saying, "I wasn't really a funk player before I joined the band.
I learned everything I needed to know about how to sound good with Flea by studying Hillel's playing and I just took it sideways from there.
Frusciante focused on emulating Slovak's style. Producer Michael Beinhorn disagreed with this approach and wanted Frusciante to play with an uncharacteristic heavy metal tone, largely absent from the band's three preceding records.
The Chili Peppers collaborated with producer Rick Rubin for their second record with Frusciante, Blood Sugar Sex Magik Rubin felt that it was important to record the album in an unorthodox setting and suggested an old Hollywood Hills mansion.
Frusciante and Flea seldom went outside and spent most of their time smoking marijuana. They recorded roughly 10 to 15 hours of material, which went unreleased.
Blood Sugar Sex Magik peaked at number three on the Billboard charts and went on to sell 13 million copies worldwide. Frusciante was blindsided by his newfound fame and struggled to cope.
Soon after the album's release, he began to develop a dislike for the band's popularity. Kiedis recalled that he and Frusciante used to get into heated discussions backstage after concerts: "John would say, 'We're too popular.
I don't need to be at this level of success. I would just be proud to be playing this music in clubs like you guys were doing two years ago.
Everything seemed to be happening at once and I just couldn't cope with it". Frusciante also began to feel that destiny was leading him away from the band.
When the Chili Peppers began their world tour, he started to hear voices in his head telling him "you won't make it during the tour, you have to go now".
To balance it out, I had to be extra-humble, extra-anti-rock star. He was persuaded to perform but left for California the next morning.
Not by any members in particular or management in particular, but just the direction it was going. In a interview, Cris Kirkwood said that following Frusciante's departure from the Chili Peppers in , Frusciante auditioned for the Meat Puppets.
Kirkwood said, "He showed up with his guitar out of its case and barefoot. We were on a major label then, we just got signed, and those guys had blown up to where they were at and John needed to get out.
John gets to our pad and we started getting ready to play and I said, 'You want to use my tuner? Then we jammed but it didn't come to anything.
Maybe he wasn't in the right place and we were a tight little unit. It just didn't quite happen but it could have worked.
Frusciante developed serious drug habits while touring with the band during the previous four years. He said that when he "found out that Flea was stoned out of his mind at every show, that inspired me to be a pothead".
He also used heroin and was on the verge of full-scale addiction. Upon returning to California in , Frusciante entered a deep depression, feeling that his life was over and that he could no longer write music or play the guitar.
To cope with his worsening depression, Frusciante increased his heroin use and spiraled into a life-threatening dependency. I was never guilty—I was always really proud to be an addict.
According to Bob Forrest in his memoir Running With Monsters , actor River Phoenix , a friend of Frusciante and the Chili Peppers, was living with Frusciante in late October Forrest said that the two would do large amounts of drugs together, embarking on binges and barely sleeping.
On the evening of October 30, , Phoenix was to perform with the band P which featured Flea, actor Johnny Depp , Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers and Al Jourgensen of Ministry at The Viper Room , a Hollywood nightclub partly owned at the time by Depp.
Forrest claims that Phoenix and Frusciante arrived at the club to meet Phoenix's girlfriend Samantha Mathis , Phoenix's brother Joaquin and their sister Rain.
In the early morning hours of October 31, Phoenix was found outside on the sidewalk overdosing, suffering from convulsions.
He was rushed by ambulance to the hospital with Flea riding with him and was pronounced dead shortly after.
Frusciante has never commented on Phoenix's death and it is unknown where Frusciante was at the time of Phoenix's death.
Frusciante released his first solo album, Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt , in Frusciante denied that it was recorded while he was on heroin,  saying it was released when he was a heroin addict.
As long as I'm obeying those forces, it's always going to be meaningful. I could be playing guitar and I could say 'Play something that sucks,' and if I'm in that place, it's gonna be great.
And it has nothing to do with me, except in ways that can't be understood. Warner Bros. However, because he was reclusive, the label handed the rights over to Rubin, who released the album at the urging of Frusciante's friends.
An article in the New Times LA described Frusciante as "a skeleton covered in thin skin" who at the nadir of his addictions nearly died from a blood infection.
Frusciante released his second solo album, Smile from the Streets You Hold , in The album's first track, "Enter a Uh", is characterized by cryptic lyrics and hysterical screeches.
Frusciante also coughs throughout the track, showcasing his deteriorating health. By his admission, he released the album to get "drug money" and withdrew it from the market in The album is also notable for including a recording called Height Down , which features River Phoenix.
In late , after more than five years of addiction to heroin, Frusciante went cold turkey. Fully recovered, Frusciante began living a more spiritual, ascetic lifestyle.
He changed his diet, becoming more health-conscious and eating mostly unprocessed foods. I don't need to take drugs. I feel so much more high all the time right now because of the type of momentum that a person can get going when you really dedicate yourself to something that you really love.
I don't even consider doing them, they're completely silly. Between my dedication to trying to constantly be a better musician and eating my health foods and doing yoga, I feel so much more high than I did for the last few years of doing drugs.
At this point I'm the happiest person in the world. These things do not fuck with me at all, and I'm so proud of that—you don't know how proud I am.
It's such a beautiful thing to be able to face life, to face yourself, without hiding behind drugs; without having to have anger towards people who love you.
There are people who are scared of losing stuff, but you don't lose anything for any other reason than if you just give up on yourself.
Despite his experience as an addict, Frusciante does not view his drug use as a "dark period" in his life. He considers it a period of rebirth, during which he found himself and cleared his mind.
In early , the Red Hot Chili Peppers fired guitarist Dave Navarro and were on the verge of breaking up.
Flea told Kiedis, "[T]he only way I could imagine carrying on [with the Red Hot Chili Peppers] is if we got John back in the band.
When Flea visited him at his home and asked him to rejoin the band, Frusciante began sobbing and said, "16othing would make me happier in the world.
Frusciante's return restored a key component of the Chili Peppers' sound, as well as a healthy morale. He brought with him his deep devotion to music, which affected the band's recording style during the album.
During the Californication world tour, Frusciante continued to compose new material, much of which would be released in on his third solo album To Record Only Water for Ten Days.
The album was stylistically unlike his previous records, less markedly stream-of-consciousness or avant-garde. However, the lyrics were still very cryptic and its sound was notably stripped down.
In , Frusciante began recording his fourth album with Red Hot Chili Peppers, By the Way ; he considered the time to be among the happiest in his life.
He wanted to listen to these musicians "who weren't just about technique but more about textures", or as he put it, "people who used good chords".
Frusciante wrote and recorded a plethora of songs during and after the By the Way tour. In February , he started a side project with Joe Lally of Fugazi and Josh Klinghoffer , called Ataxia.
The group was together for about two weeks, during which they recorded about ninety minutes of material. Frusciante released his fourth full-length solo album Shadows Collide with People on February 24, This featured guest appearances from some of his friends, including Klinghoffer, and Chili Peppers bandmates Smith and Flea.
With the release of Curtains, Frusciante debuted his only music video of , for the track "The Past Recedes". He wanted to produce these records quickly and inexpensively on analog tape, avoiding modern studio and computer-assisted recording processes.
I made a list of all the songs I had and they totaled about seventy. My objective was to record as many songs as I could during the break that I had.
In the midst of doing that, I was writing some of my best songs, so some of these albums have as many new songs as old songs.
It was definitely the most productive time of my life. In early , Frusciante entered the studio to work on his fifth studio album with the Chili Peppers, Stadium Arcadium.
His guitar playing is dominant throughout the album, and he provides backing vocals on most of the tracks. Although usually following a "less is more" style of guitar playing,  he began using a full twenty-four track mixer for maximum effect.
He also changed his approach to his playing, opting to contribute solos and let songs form from jam sessions.
In an interview from Guitar World , Frusciante explained how he approached his guitar solos for their album Stadium Arcadium completely differently from those for their previous albums.
On Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication , Frusciante had a general idea how he wanted his guitar solos to sound. For Stadium Arcadium, almost every guitar solo was completely improvised by Frusciante on the spot.
He worked continuously with Rubin over-dubbing guitar progressions, changing harmonies and using all his technical resources. Ataxia released its second and final studio album, AW II in Following the Stadium Arcadium tour early May to late August , the Red Hot Chili Peppers agreed to a hiatus of indefinite length.
Frusciante's tenth solo album, The Empyrean , was released on January 20, , through Record Collection. Frusciante stated: "I'm really happy with [the record] and I've listened to it a lot for the psychedelic experience it provides," suggesting the album is "to be played as loud as possible and is suited to dark living rooms late at night.
After his departure from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frusciante became more serious about his longtime dream to make electronic music. As he explained on his blog, "I started to learn how to program all the instruments we associate with Acid House music and some other hardware.
Then I started recording, playing 10 or so synced machines through a small mixer into a CD burner. This was all experimental Acid House, my skills at making rock music playing no part in it whatsoever.
I had lost interest in traditional songwriting and I was excited about finding new methods for creating music.
Frusciante released a new EP on July 17, , entitled Letur-Lefr. As with his previous solo releases, it was released through Record Collection Music.
He followed the EP with his tenth full-length studio album PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone on September 25, Prior to that, on August 16, he also released a free download of the non-album song "Walls and Doors".
Frusciante released an instrumental song named Wayne on April 7, , through his website. It was written and dedicated to the memory of his late friend, former Red Hot Chili Peppers' tour chef Wayne Forman.
The same year, he began collaborating with Wu-Tang affiliates Black Knights Crisis The Sharpshoota, The Rugged Monk.

Their debut EP, Hiding in the Light was produced by Turley and was released on her record label Neurotic Yell in March A track "Todo Menos El Dolor" was released on SoundCloud on January Having released "Scratch", a single recorded during the PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone sessions, Frusciante released his eleventh studio album, Enclosure , on April 8, The album of the same name is Frusciante's first experimenting with the acid house genre.
He previously released an EP, Sect In Sgt under this alias in Acid Test Records announced on February 15, , that Frusciante would release an EP of electronic music on April 16, , entitled Foregrow.
On November 24, , Frusciante announced that he was releasing free unreleased songs dating from to on his official Bandcamp and SoundCloud pages.
He also debunked the interview about him retiring from the music industry, saying that his words were taken out of context.
He writes, "I also must clear something up. I normally don't read my press, but I heard about this quote, recently taken out of context by some lame website and made into a headline, in which I said 'I have no audience'.
This has been misinterpreted, and by no fault of the excellent journalist who interviewed me for the fine publication Electronic Beats.
Obviously I have a public audience. I am aware of them, and they know who they are. Monday, May 25, John Frusciante and Flea new picture.
