John Frusciante Discography

The discography of John Frusciante, who is best known as the former guitarist of the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, consists of eleven solo albums, and four EPs, as well as two albums with collaborators Joe Lally and Josh Klinghoffer under the name Ataxia. Frusciante left the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1992 after he got tired of the growing success of the band. He released his first solo album Niandra LaDes and Usually Just a T-Shirt, in 1994 on American Recordings. His second record, Smile From the Streets You Hold, was released in 1997 and later taken off the market at his request in 1999. After returning to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1998, Frusciante recorded Californication with the band and subsequently released his third solo album, To Record Only Water for Ten Days in February 2001 on Warner Music Group.

Red Hot Chili Peppers released By the Way in 2002, with John taking a central role in the songwriting. Following the album's tour, Frusciante released Shadows Collide with People in 2004; it became his first solo album to influence a music chart and is his only solo album to date featuring Chad Smith. In 2004, Frusciante switched from Warner Brothers to the Record Collection label and released a series of six records in six months. Four of six included collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Josh Klinghoffer and the period produced collaborations with Fugazi member Joe Lally and producer Ian McKaye.

In 2006, the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their Grammy Award winning double album Stadium Arcadium, their last to feature Frusciante as lead guitarist. Frusciante began work on his tenth solo record, The Empyrean shortly thereafter and, subsequently released the album in early 2009. In December 2009, Frusciante revealed that he had left Red Hot Chili Peppers more than a year earlier, during their hiatus. 2012's Letur-Lefr EP and the full-length follow-up PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone will be his first solo release since leaving the Chili Peppers.

Famous quotes containing the word john:

    Well, I know you haven’t had much experience writing and none at all in pictures. But I’ve heard about you. It all sounded like you’re just the man I wanted for a story about the Navy. I don’t want a story just about ships and planes. I want a story about the officers.... I want this story from a pen dipped in salt water not dry martinis. Do you know what I mean?
