Tanya Vece: Want to tell everyone what you are up to?
John Frusciante: You want me to spill the beans on the next Peppers project. No.
TV: Want to tell everyone how you have been?
JF: The same. More into art and painting as of yesterday.
TV: The last book you read?
JF: My Royal Past.
TV: Three artists on my Myspace you have listened to this past month:
JF: Easy. The Coral, David Bowie, Morrisey.
TV: What have you been watching on tv lately?
JF: Elections and Its Always Sunny
TV: Something you and I wouldn’t agree on?
JF: Russell Brand being funny. I know you “like” him. He did cross the line and not cause it would be a matter of free speech or in the sense of an artist. He made his prank calls to Mr. Sachs personal and it was disrespectful. If Howard Stern called President Bush and said those same things the reaction would be the same.
TV: Favorite movie of the summer.
JF: Tropic Thunder
TV: Every time someone I know refers to you they refer to you as John Mother Fucking Frusciante. Does this bother you?
JF: (laughing) No. Anthony said it once at a concert and it stuck. The guy who makes my wheat grass shots at Whole Foods even calls out “Shot for John Mother Fucking Frusciante”. It is funny. I guess I could have a worse nick name. Tick or Flea! (kidding)
TV: What are you doing right now.
JF: This interview, and listening to Laura Black.
TV: What makes you laugh the hardest?
JF: I saw a video on You Tube comparing President Bush to the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. That was funny.
TV: When will you be back in Las Vegas playing a concert?
JF: When will you be back in California? I’m not sure either.
TV: Name something you are looking forward to.
JF: The next visit from my spiritual guide.
TV: One piece of advice you would give to someone on the verge of quitting music right now?
JF: Quit. If you have to think about quitting music you should. I did and I did because I knew I was not in the frame of mind to be in love with it at the time. Not saying I was out of love with music I was just able to be in love with it for a period of time for several reasons. Once I was able to fall in love with myself again I found my love of music again and think people were able to tell. Don’t make music to make money or get girls (or boys) or for fame. Make music because you are in love with music. If you do it for any other reason people will be able to tell and eventually their responses will cause you to fall out of love with the music. That is one reason to quit.
