Az Electronic Beats magazinnak adott interjúban John Frusciante elmondta, hogy nem akar többet zenét csinálni senkinek, mert ha a közönségre figyel, akkor nem tud fejlődni, tanulni.
No. For the last year and a half I made the decision to stop making music for anybody and with no intention of releasing it, which is what I was doing between 2008 and 2012. I felt that if I took the public into consideration at all, I wasn’t going to grow and I wasn’t going to learn. Being an electronic musician meant I had to woodshed for a while, so I have a good few years’ worth of material from that period that’s never been released.
Múlt hétvégén Anthony és Josh felléptek az UCLA Spring Sing rendezvényen, és adtak egy három számos kis akusztikus koncert. Ráadásul nem is akármilyen három számot, az Otherside és a By The Way mellett eljátszották az If You Want Me To Stay-t is!

I had a strong vision of myself making electronic music in 1997 just before I rejoined my old band. I had always seen all music made with electric instruments, and all recorded music, as electronic music. But I had never imagined myself being someone who would make synth pop or hip hop or dance/club music.During the 80s I rarely was very excited about music made with synths, samples, and drum machines. When all the really great techno and jungle emerged in the 90s, I did not even know it existed. But when my 90s drug addiction period came to an end, I became obsessed with so-called electronic music. All of a sudden I loved 80s synth pop and industrial music, and thought my songwriting would sound good produced like that, but I had little money, and thought that this was very expensive music to make. I rejoined my old band, and gradually started buying synths, samplers and drum machines.
