Yup, got paid to basically jump up and down and dance around. That actually explains why Josh looked like he was fucking swinging around like a mad man.

Well you can't really blame them, money is good. Specially if all it takes you is playing air guitar.

Yes, but there are more important things than money.

It is the Red Hot Chili Peppers though. It's been a long time since they've put the music first, and when you have been around as long as they have and been through what they have I can't judge them for that. People do a lot worse for a lot less.

I don't think every rich person is obsessed with money. I'm betting that a fair amount of well off musicians/performers are obsessed with getting peoples approval and admiration. Its the only way I can come up with to explain certain things....like Elton John participating in Lady Gaga's special with The Muppets???? I mean there is no way on earth that Elton John needs to change the words to Benny and the Jets to Gaga and the Jets and perform it with her on a tv special in order to make rent. I've heard that him and Gaga are such good friends that shes the godmother of one of his kids or something but its not like his appearance was going to be a major boost to help out his close friends career. I'd bet being in the spotlight just really appeals to him....regardless of how lame it looks.

Overall its just a really good reason to create your own art. Handle it and treat it the way you want. Sitting on the sidelines and judging others doesn't accomplish much. Control your own "product" and see what compromises you will or won't make. You'll learn a lot more that way.

Yeah, I agree. It's unlikely it's about the money as I'm sure they've all got plenty of that by now. It's an attempt for them to feel relevant, or maybe they've got to the point where there aren't many real challenges left and playing the Super Bowl is a new experience for them. I have no doubt that the limelight is addictive and once you get a taste for it it must be hard to not want more, all the more reason to respect those that are strong enough to walk away from it.

Infinite respect for John Frusciante, the band is completely dead without him and his solo work kicks the shit out of any other musician anyway

I don't agree, I've got a few of his solo albums and the more I listen to him the more I think he's only as good as the musicians he's playing with. I'm not slagging him off, his playing on Blood Sugar Sex Magic is absolutely fantastic. It's tasteful and economical and the songs are fantastic. I'm less into Californication and By The Way, his playing on The Mars Volta stuff is really good and I think he should have joined them.

I think people who call him a god on guitar haven't been listening to enough music because his output doesn't justify that title at all.

Frusciante isn't a guitar god. From a melodic and harmonic point of view, he fucking sucks. However, he's good. Because TIMING bitches, fucking TIMING. The guy understands music.

I'm a total atheist. Totally don't believe in Guitar Gods. Play what you want play what you feel who cares if it impresses others on a melodic, harmonic level or even if your timing sucks. If other people like it thats cool....if not, oh well.

Nah nah nah, timing is important. You can't jam with people if you don't have a basic sense of the pulse and that kind of shit. Not that 'tis too difficult to learn how to listen and go with the rhythm, there are no 'Gods' on what time is concerned - There's just people who feel it and people who wants to.

timing is important if you want others to like what your doing or even put up with it for very long or even join in the festivities with another instrument but...probably the most important of the fundamentals but really its just the beginning of a path to pleasing others. I really just wanna piss of the neighborhood! Loud, out of tune and off timing are the fundamentals to reach my goal! :lol: :lol: :lol:
