on a sidenote John frusiante' older solo stuff is amazing, first 2 albums
I really don't agree with this. I agree that there's a difference between the two...but when you listen to a RHCP song (doesn't matter which one), you just get pulled into the groove by chad, even though he's not playing anything fancy.
